"Sex and the City" star Jason Lewis is issuing a mea culpa after shooting a loaded gun at some feral cats — the gun, though, was loaded with rice, not bullets.
On Jan. 30, TMZ published a video showing the actor getting into a heated argument with a neighbor over the incident.
The webloid reports that one of Jason's neighbors passed away last fall and left the cats without an owner. A different neighbor — seemingly the one in the augmentative video — has been feeding the cats every day. Jason, though, is upset that the cats are apparently relieving themselves in his yard, so he took matters into his own hands and started shooting rice grains in cats' direction.
The woman says Jason's action are undermining her efforts to "get [the cats] into homes."
"Everyone who knows me knows my love of animals. I've tried for months to work with a person who is coming into the neighborhood and feeding a large group of feral cats in an effort to relocate them as they have been filling the yards with fleas and waste," he said in a statement. "I made the wrong choice in shooting rice into the dirt (not toward the cats) to spook with the noise and scare them away. To fellow animal lovers that I disappointed, I'm sorry."
