Nine lives couldn’t stop this kitty killer. Cat lovers, let this be a warning to all of you — keep your pets far away from your roommates’ junkie girlfriends!!!
Danielle Blankenship, 21, of Boulder, Colo., was arrested Tuesday after cops arrived at her home on a domestic dispute call and found the cat, Muffin, passed out cold at the bottom of the stairs, the Daily Camera reported.
Blankenship’s boyfriend told police that the woman had been smoking heroin and blowing it in the tabby’s face. The woman denied using the drug, cops said.
After failing to wake the cat, cops called animal control, and the sick kitty was taken to the Humane Society of Boulder Valley, where she was treated for poisoning.
Veterinarians were able to briefly revive Muffin, but her condition worsened and she died at an emergency pet clinic on Tuesday night.
Blankenship was charged with third-degree assault and misdemeanor animal cruelty. She pleaded not guilty to both charges.
She was freed on $1,500 bond and due in court in August.
Muffin belonged to a roommate of Blankenship’s boyfriend.
