It’s cat over husband.

A Texas woman allegedly shot her husband in the stomach after he threatened to hurt one of her cats, KHOU.com reported.

The incident reportedly took place on Sept. 25 at the couple’s home in Spring, just 20 miles north of downtown Houston. According to Harris County Precinct 4 deputy constables, the couple was arguing when Miller’s husband threatened to shoot the cat.

Audrey Deen Miller, 42, owner of several cats and dogs, pulled out a .40-caliber semiautomatic handgun and shot her husband in the stomach, police told KHOU. 

The man was taken to Northwest Medical Center in stable condition, while Miller was taken into custody and charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

Detectives said the couple doesn’t have a history of problems at home, where they’ve lived for about two years, KSAT.com reported. A small amount of marijuana was found inside the home, officials said to KSAT.

The cat survived the conjugal dispute without a scratch.
