A Roseville family wants to know who is responsible for hanging their 8-year-old cat in their neighborhood.
The cat - named Sassy Girl - was found hanging from a picket fence with a belt around its neck, according to a press release from the Placer SPCA. A microchip implanted in the cat identified it as belonging to the Roseville family; they were notified late Thursday that their pet had been killed.
"Yeah, I cried really hard," said pet owner Moriah Miller. "I was just devastated and confused. I don't know how somebody would do something like that to an innocent cat."
