(KWWL) -

According to Cedar Falls Police, Justin Jacoby, a Cedar Falls resident, called his landlord and told her that he had just killed his cat and was going to drink it's blood. 

The landlord responded by going to his apartment on Bicentennial Dr. and made contact with Jacoby. 

Jacoby admitted to having killed his cat by "chocking" it with a rope. He also admitted to trying to drink the cat's blood. 

The landlord was shown Jaboby's shower where the bloody cat's body was found laying on the floor with the shower head on, washing the blood down the shower drain. 

The landlord observed Jacoby to have a small amount of dried blood on his face, near his mouth. 

According to the criminal complaint, Jacoby stated that he killed the cat to satisfy his blood craving and to keep the animal from having to go to an animal shelter upon his eviction from the apartment. 

Based on this information, there is probable cause to constitute the charge of Animal Torture, an aggravated misdemeanor.
