This is a sad story of a cat who died and the
idiot owner who survived. A New Hampshire man told police that his cat accidentally shot itself after knocking over the shotgun. The police suspected that the cat wasn’t to blame when they smelled alcohol on his breath, noticed slurred speech, and found him unable to stand without swaying. He told the police he had one drink.

idiot college student, Nicholas Goroff, was found crying outside an emergency animal clinic on Friday around 4am in this condition. He had told the clinic employees that the cat had caused the shotgun to discharge. The cat was euthanized and its name nor gender was provided.
After telling the police several different versions of the story, the police were finally able to get Goroff to admit to having shot his own cat. According to police, Goroff removed a loaded shotgun from his bedroom and took it to the living room of the apartment he shared with a girlfriend and brother. He leaned the gun against the couch, then picked it up and pulled back the hammer. According to police, his thumb slipped when he tried to release the hammer and the poor cat was hit.
The police went to his apartment and found more than a dozen empty beer cans. When the shotgun discharged, it was also pointed at a neighboring apartment, which led police to arrest
the idiot him with felony reckless endangerment.
“I’m no risk to anyone… I had but one half of a beer,” said
the idiot Goroff. The judge set his bond at $2,000. He will appear in court again for a hearing on August 23. Goroff’s sentence is unlikely to be a gunshot wound from a shot fired by a cat.
It is not known if Goroff’s dubious inspiration came from this story of a dog shooting its owner.
