Angelina Barnes, a 20-year old Oklahoma City woman, has been charged with animal cruelty for allegedly killing her family's 15-year old pet cat, above, in order to wear his blood to a Lady Gaga concert.
Warning, the following description of what was found on the crime scene is not for the queasy: Police say "investigators found purple hair dye and blood all over the bathroom along with the cat that had been drowned; sliced down the belly, eyes mutilated, the cat's liver was found in a makeup case on counter."
