24-year-old Charlie Busick of Eden, NC, man blamed his cat for shooting him. He told deputies that he was home alone when his cat jumped up onto a loveseat and onto his .45-caliber pistol, which then discharged. Busick was shot in the hip. He called a friend to take him to a local hospital.
Busick later changed his story according to the Sheriff’s Office. He told deputies that when he went to stand up, he placed his left hand on the loveseat. His thumb accidentally hit the trigger and caused the gun to go off. He admitted that the cat had nothing to do with the shooting.
I hope the cat successfully sues him for slander and wins a Million-Temptations settlement. Shame on you, Charlie Busick.
