A jealous girl, upset at her father's new girlfriend, took her anger out on the family cat by killing it then ripping it to shreds and posting it online to annoy her dad.
And instead of showing remorse when she came under fire from animal lovers, Li Pingping, 19, defended the deed as a sign of the emotional pressure her father's betrayal had left her under.
Pingping, from Huizhou city in southeast China’s Guangdong province, first put pictures of herself online, saying: "This is me, this is the face the world sees". Then she posted the beheaded cat, with its entrails trailing across the bathroom floor, saying: "This is what I feel like inside, and the pain nobody sees."
She became the target of a fierce cyberspace backlash because of her cruelty but justified the killing of the family pet by saying she was upset that her father had embarked on an affair with another woman - she said it was his third - and that this time he was going to leave the family.
"You have never been hurt as deeply as I have been hurt," she posted alongside the mutilated cat pictures. "If you were me, you would have done much worse than this."
Police are considering animal cruelty charges against Pingping after she has been assessed by psychiatrists. A spokesman said: "It was a wanton act but we will only prosecute if she is declared sane."
