Audrey Deen Miller. Harris County Sheriff's Department.

Gina Sunseri and Miya Shay Report:

Investigators in Harris County, Texas, are trying to figure out what prompted a woman to shoot her husband in an argument over their cat. The woman, 42-year-old Audrey Deen Miller, is accused of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

Investigators with Harris County Precinct 4 say the couple had an argument over the family cat, though there are several cats on the property so it isn't clear yet which cat sparked the argument. Investigators say when Miller's husband threatened to hurt the cat, Miller shot her husband in the stomach.

The husband was taken to Ben Taub Hospital where he had surgery for his wounds and was listed in stable condition. The incident occurred around 7:15 in the morning in a backyard of a quiet suburb northwest of Houston. The cat was not hurt.
