If Scott Graham is responsible for all the missing cats in a Mesa neighborhood, then it's safe to say that he messed the wrong people's cats.

Now that Graham was sentenced to house arrest in the case -- which involved the murders of up to 40 cats -- people are protesting outside his home.

-Scott Graham Accused of Mutilating Neighbor's Cat

Graham was arrested almost exactly a year ago, after a whole lot of cats went missing from the same neighborhood.

At first, the Arizona Humane Society suspected about a dozen cats had been catnapped. Graham, who became the suspect in the cat disappearances, eventually told police that he just "played" with the cats -- 30 to 40 of them.

Police saw Graham on video surveillance footage taking one cat, which was found a few days later, dead and mutilated behind a nearby strip mall. Another mutilated cat was found there too.

It seemed that police had pretty good evidence, as the trunk of his car reeked of dead, according to court documents. His excuse was that cats snuck into his car one night and brawled in the trunk.

Police spoke with Graham's parents at their house after Graham was accused by a neighbor of taking the cat -- and throwing a cat at him out of his car window -- and they told police their son didn't even own a cat. In fact, the guy being investigated for stealing a whole lot of cats is actually allergic to cats, his parents told police.

Police also found Graham's clothing, gloves, and car floor mats "covered" in cat hair in his garage.

Again, Graham just said he abducted the cats, "played" with them, and released them elsewhere.

Graham was arrested for animal abuse and other charges, all of which were eventually dropped due to a lack of evidence -- except for a single theft charge, which Graham was found guilty of, and sentenced to house arrest.

Now, if you turned on 3TV this morning, you would have seen that people were actually protesting this outside Graham's house.

We've spoken to some of these people before, and we'll tell you they're as serious about there cats as the character Angela from the Office -- Graham apparently picked the wrong neighborhood to "play" with other people's cats, including Biscuit, Oreo, Snickers, Little Bit, and "Kitty Does" numbers 1 through 40.

Innocent animals?? Please! Fuck cat people! As far as I'm concerned this dude was performing a public service. I live in Phoenix and the feral cat problem is endemic.  The shit in my yard, treat my garden like a fucking litter box, piss in my girlfriends jeep if she dares to leave the top down, and scratch up the pant on the my car as they crawl along it for some ungodly reason.  And what's most disgusting is the fucking cat people who encourage these intrusive beast by feeding them, but somehow don't actually have to take responsibility for them. Here's an idea, take responsibility for you fucking pet and don't let it roam the neighborhood and fuck up other people's shit! Dog owners aren't allowed to be so irresponsible with their animals and neither should you! I can guarantee those with house cats don't have to worry about sick little Scotty and his cat murdering fetish. Put just in general, fuck cat people!

A public lynching would be more appropriate than a protest.

When I read that the catnapper/killer's last name is Graham, I instantly thought Robert Graham. Kidding aside, this is a highly disturbed individual. As mental health professions say often, anyone who tortures animals will sometimes move on to torturing and killing humans. That this guy is on house arrest is a good thing. Anyone he encounters in the neighborhood will remind him that he's being watched and that he'd better not step over the line. What line? The line that demarcates the transition from animal torturer to people murderer.

Quick, get Joe Arpaio to swear them in. Then he'll have a real Pussy Posse.

@MrDuke Tha'ts not the cat's fault, it's their shitty owners who have outdoor cats.  Fuck people.  I love cats and yes we have a feral problem too and they get on top of the car for warmth.  It does suck and I'd love to remove them, but I wouldn't harm them.

@eric.nelson745 Yes, you are certainly right about animal torture being a common precursor to sociopathic behavior of other kinds.

@shadeaux14 @MrDuke Then I guess we can count on you to be gathering up the feral cats and paying to have them spayed and neutered.
