Police say officers were called to a home on Lapham Road in the Town of Aurora on January 14th for the report of a woman who killed her cat.

Following an investigation, officers discovered 66-year-old Jan Kaufmann put her cat in a bucket, secured the lid and put it outside after the cat urinated in her home.
