Riverside County sheriff's officials are investigating a trio of cat slayings in La Quinta over the last few weeks in which owners found their felines gutted or shot.

"We only get about half a dozen animal cruelty calls a month but nothing like this," said Lt. Raymond Gregory, a sheriff's spokesman. "So this is too unusual and too weird."

Gregory said investigators believe the cat slayings are linked.
