Police in Green Bay, Wis., say a woman who attended but did not complete veterinary school and her fiance's brother tried to save money by neutering the man's cat at home and botched the procedure, and they could be sentenced to nine months in jail and pay $11,000 in fines if they are convicted of mistreating an animal and practicing veterinary medicine without a license. The cat was treated for a severe infection and neutered at a local veterinary clinic.
