FORT WALTON BEACH, FL – A Fort Walton Beach man was charged with stepping on a woman’s new kitten and killing it because he “was unhappy with it.” The Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office has charged 40-year old James Thomas Miller of Emerald Lane with felony animal cruelty.

The woman said the man told her on November 24th he was going to kill the kitten because it kept crying. She says she later heard a loud noise coming from upstairs and went to see what it was. She says Miller said “What did I do?” and she saw the kitten was severely injured and having convulsions.

OCSO deputies say Miller intentionally, forcefully, and unnecessarily killed the kitten, a third-degree felony.
