Wendi Hird, a 56-year-old ex-felon, was not kitten around when she hit her roommate in the face with their pet cat.

Law enforcement was called to the home of the duo late on Sunday evening after a fight. The two are said to be former lovers but are now just platonic housemates.

The two had gotten into a "verbal argument" when Hird found the purr-fect weapon and threw the cat onto the 73-year-old victim.

She continued to hit him afterwards in the face.

The victim suffered minor injuries including scratches from the cat's claws and some redness and cuts on his knee and foot.

There was evidence that the assailant was under the influence of alcohol and drugs at the time, officials said in a police report.

Hird was arrested and charged for domestic battery on a person over the age of 65, which is a felony in Florida. She is currently being held in the county jail for $4000 bond.

The duo was previously involved in a fight where cops were called in 2018, however charges were dropped.

This is not the first offense for the Floridian. She has a long list of felonies on her record for theft, assault, possession of drug paraphernalia, driving while intoxicated, prostitution, and escaping from police custody.

Hird was also convicted for battery against a police officer in 2005 for which she spent five years in prison.

The cat's status after the hiss-terical incident is unknown.
