A man in Spring, TX suffered at the hands of the cat lady he married when she shot him in the gut. 42-year-old Audrey Deen Miller popped her husband with a 40-caliber semiautomatic handgun after he threatened to shoot one of her cats with a pellet gun and throw it over a fence. In the woman's eyes, she was protecting one of her children.

The incident stemmed from an argument about the cat; the Millers had several. Dogs were also found in the home, along with some marijuana. The man was rushed to the hospital in stable condition, and departed shortly after. He went back home, still dressed in a hospital gown, but was unable to enter the home because he didn't have keys.
