Cat Shot and Killed in Backyard Deserves Justice

Target: Jeffrey L. Ashton, State’s Attorney for Orange County, Florida

Goal: Demand the maximum penalty for the person who shot and killed a cat in its own backyard.

A cat was shot in her own backyard. The bullet struck her in the hips and went into her kidneys, leading to a painful death. Demand justice for this innocent cat.

“I will never get that noise out of my head. It was just horrible,” Daina Matte stated, describing the agonizing cries of her injured cat. Initially, Matte believed that 4-year-old Diem was attacked by an animal. She soon realized that her beloved cat had been shot. Diem eventually died from her injuries.

Maitland police are investigating this incident. They do not yet have a suspect. Sign below and demand the maximum penalty in this case.


Dear State’s Attorney Ashton,

A cat was shot in her own backyard, leading to her death. The bullet struck her in the hips and penetrated her organs. We demand justice for this innocent cat.

“She made it to the glass door because she saw us, and we were afraid to open it because we didn’t know what was going on. That’s when she just collapsed right there,” stated Daina Matte, the cat’s owner. She rushed the cat to the veterinarian, who later confirmed that the cat had been shot.

Matte has two other cats and is fearful for their safety. We demand that you seek the maximum penalty in this case.
