What’s the deal with ‘Don’t F*ck With Cats’

Netflix released an original docuseries titled “Don’t F*ck With Cats: Hunting an Internet Killer” last December. The series consists of three episodes and tells the story of one of Canada’s worst murderers.

Not for the faint of heart, the series features videos of the torturing and killing of multiple kittens. The awful acts trigger multiple internet sleuths to analyze the videos and look for the smallest clues in order to hunt down the “kitten killer.”

Eventually, Luka Magnotta is indicated as the animal abuser in the videos. Magnotta goes on to elevate his crimes, as many had feared, and murders 33-year-old Jun Lin.

The docuseries goes into detail about the Facebook groups dedicated to the catching of Magnotta, Magnotta’s crimes and his eventual capture.

Most viewers are enthralled by Netflix’s newest killer documentary. However, for some, “Don’t F*ck With Cats,” is almost too hard to watch.

This series follows the release of the very popular Netflix original movie, “Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile,” which details the crimes and conviction of the infamous serial killer Ted Bundy.

“Abducted in Plain Sight” and “The Confession Tapes” are also widely popular true crime shows on the streaming website. There seems to be a growing obsession with crime shows, and Netflix is stepping up to meet the demand.
