A 63-year-old Sonoma man could face up to a year in prison in the shooting of a neighborhood cat with a pellet gun. Kenneth McCann Sr. was arrested this weekend after a neighbor reported seeing him with a pellet pistol, hearing a popping sound and seeing the orange tabby, Tiger, leaping over a fence. The cat lost an eye as a result of the shooting earlier this month. When he was given X-rays after he was shot, two other pellets were found in his body, apparently from earlier attacks. McCann was booked into Sonoma County jail on felony animal cruelty charges and felony possession of hashish, which police say they found when they searched his house.
