Former Wash. man told to pay $25K in cat's death
Former Lacey, Wash., man told to pay ex-wife $25K in cat's death
By The Associated Press

OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) ' An arbitrator has ordered a former Lacey, Wash., man to pay his ex-wife $25,000 in the death of her cat.

Justin Chlarson was accused of kicking the cat in May 2010, when the couple were still married. He later pleaded guilty to a gross misdemeanor charge of second-degree animal cruelty, receiving a suspended 90-day jail sentence and $1,000 fine.

The man's lawyer, Christopher Taylor, tells The Olympian ( ) that his client has moved to California and won't appeal the arbitrator's decision.

Thurston County Arbitrator Harold Carr's recent decision broke down plaintiff Kendra Vorhies Flores' damages into $15,000 for the cat and $10,000 for her emotional suffering.

The 23-year-old Lacey woman says she'd had the long-haired calico cat since she was 11.
