Catfight!: Ga. woman, 86, charged with cat theft

AP | Posted 05.25.2011 | Home

ATLANTA — The claws are coming out in court case over a Georgia cat. 86-year-old Fauniel Kliemt has been charged with stealing a long-haired cat she said was a stray. Kliemt pleaded not guilty Tuesday to a misdemeanor charge of theft of lost or mislaid property. The case began in 2007 ago when a neighbor gave her the cat.

She had cared for the cat for about eight months when another neighbor, Kimberly Otey, approached her and said the cat belonged to her family.

A verbal fight ensued and police were called. Kliemt was charged with theft but was allowed to keep the cat and as long as she made court appearances.

The case is still pending and Kliemt said she has spent more than $6,000 in lawyers fees.

Otey said the cat, which was bought for her 4-year-old daughter, was feared dead.

Padres end Rockies' eight-game home winning streak

AP | ARNIE STAPLETON | Posted 05.25.2011 | Home

Will Venable homered and tied a career high by driving in four runs in the San Diego Padres' 6-3 win over Colorado on Wednesday night that snapped the Rockies' eight-game home winning streak.

The Rockies' lead in the NL wild-card race was whittled to four games over Atlanta, which beat the New York Mets 5-2 Wednesday night. The San Francisco Giants, who played at Arizona, also began the night five games behind Colorado.

Venable hit a solo homer in the second, his 12th, and added a three-run double in the fifth off right-hander Jason Marquis (15-12), who failed for the third time to win his career-best 16th game.

Reliever Ryan Webb (1-0) got the win with one inning of scoreless relief and Heath Bell pitched the ninth for his 40th save.
