LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Police are looking for suspects in two separate pet shootings that happened last week.

One cat owner woke up Wednesday morning to find his Russian Blue, named Aladdin, dead in the garage. The cat had been shot in the neck at close range by a pellet gun, according to necropsy results. The owner said the cat had gotten out the night before in the Adams Run neighborhood near Beulah Church Road -- but apparently made it back to the garage after being shot.

On Saturday, a woman's dog was shot at point blank range near the corner of Lentz and Southern Heights Avenues. The 10-year-old dog, named Tommy had been let out in the owner's fenced-in yard. The owner said someone must have cut through the yard and left the gate open.

She said she found the dog shot to death a block away off Taylor Boulevard near the Watterson Expressway.

Police are investigating both incidents and no arrests have been made in either case.
