HOUSTON — A woman is recovering after police say she was shot by her ex-boyfriend at an apartment in west Houston Tuesday night. 

The scene was at The Registry apartment complex in the 6100 block of Winsome Lane. The woman is expected to survive, but her kitten did not. 

The man, who police are looking for, is accused of shooting his ex-girlfriend in the leg, then shooting and killing her cat. 

Police didn't say what might have motivated the shooting, or why the kitten became a target. Officers also didn't give a description of the man they're now looking for.
