‘Monster’ Joseph Petcka killed my cat, she testifies about ex-Met boyfriend

A “Sex and the City” actor’s claim that he killed his girlfriend’s cat in self-defense suffered a blow Wednesday with revelations that the tabby was declawed.

Joseph Petcka, who is on trial on charges of felony cruelty, claims he was being attacked by the 7-pound pussy named Norman when he pummeled the animal to death.

Norman’s heartbroken owner, Lisa Altobelli, told a Manhattan Supreme Court jury a far different story Wednesday, describing Petcka’s jealous rage toward the creature.

Weeping on the witness stand, she recounted finding her beloved pet’s battered body under a bedside table after a quarrel with Petcka on the night of March 27, 2007. “He was dead,” Altobelli said. “I put my hand there. He was cold and stiff.”

She picked up the phone and called Petcka, 37, a handsome bit-part actor with a short fuse who once played minor league baseball for the Mets.

“What kind of monster could kill an innocent cat?” she remembered asking him. He just hung up, she said.
