This certainly gives new meaning to the term “cat fight.”

Project Runway finalist Kenley Collins has reportedly used her cat as a weapon by throwing the animal at her sleeping fiancé’s head. Oh yeah, she also allegedly chucked a laptop and three apples and slammed a door on his head as he crawled across the floor. I guess her precious sewing machine was too valuable to throw. Police have charged Collins with assault and criminal possession of a deadly weapon (i.e., her cat). Thankfully this alleged assault is being investigated, but c’mon, what about the cat?

We are so disgusted that Collins has reportedly endangered her feline companion that we think, if Collins is found guilty, she should be barred from owning any animals in the future. Anyone who would throw a cat in a fit of rage should not be trusted with the care of another life.

Her fiancé might want to watch his back, as well. More than one killer got started by hurting animals. I’m no Doctor Phil, but I’d venture a guess that these two love birds won’t be walking down the aisle anytime soon.
