- Florida, USA -
30-year-old SHELDON ORLANDO MOULTON (pictured below), was arrested early Tuesday morning, January 28, after he cowardly kicked a defenseless cat in the face.
Deputies Corbin Hradecky and Garrett Bragg responded to the 300 block of Anglers Drive in Marathon about a domestic disturbance.
A 35-year-old woman told them that her boyfriend, (MOULTON), had kicked their cat twice in the face for sitting on the couch and this angered him.
She said that MOULTON does not like the cat on furniture.
It was the woman’s mother who called the police.
Reportedly, when MOULTON came back home from New York he found the cat, named Moewy, on the couch and kicked him.
The girlfriend called her mother to tell her what happened and she alerted the authorities.
Deputies said the poor furbaby was frightened and was hiding behind curtains.
Deputies noticed he was shaking uncontrollably and cowering.
His tiny nose was red and swollen and he kept staring at the officers’ feet fearing another kick.
When MOULTON was questioned, he walked away and tried to hide marijuana he had in the room.
He was charged with animal cruelty, possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and tampering with evidence.
The girlfriend remains unidentified as she is a potential victim of domestic abuse.
