Do not mess with this woman's cat.

Mary Harrison has been arrested and jailed on a murder charge in the slaying of her 49-year-old husband Dexter Harrison. She admitted to detectives in Dallas that she shot and killed him. The reason for the shooting was because he would beat the family cat.

The shooting happened on Saturday during an argument after Dexter allegedly struck the cat. The cat actually recently returned home, according to neighbors. They recalled seeing posters for the missing cat just a few weeks ago. I guess Mary was not happy to see Dexter beating her recently returned cat and just lost it.

Dexter was taken to a nearby hospital, where he would later die from his injuries. Mary Harrison is currently being held on a $100,000 bond.
