Poor Bastards of Cinema: Daddy's Gone A-Hunting (1969)

At long last, another Poor Bastard of the feline variety.

In A-Hunting, we meet a nice lady, her weird boyfriend and their cat.
She eventually breaks up with him and has an abortion, since she doesn't want to have his kid.  He takes this...poorly.
Some time later, she's living with and married to a would-be Politician.  There's that cat again.
After much scheming and stalking, he makes his move.  He breaks in, steals the baby and...
On the plus side, the cat's sacrifice was not in vain.  He now uses its carrier to stash the baby!
The lesson: don't trust people who don't like cats.  He didn't like the cat before and he is a murdering psycho.

To be fair, this kill is set up throughout and not 100% random.  That said, it follows a set-up that implies that he'll kill the Maid.

He doesn't.  He just kills the cat.

Next time, another little person bites the dust.  Their crime: hunger.
