LODI, Calif. -- A Lodi woman posted a sign with the words, "Hit a cat, I'll hit your kid." Some neighbors said they are concerned their children's lives are being threatened.

"Basically what this is saying is: Hit a cat and I'll hit your kid," said Tina Teixeira.
Teixeira got a lot of attention after she put the sign up in front of her West Elm Street home in Sacramento, Calif.

Teixeira said she decided to take action after a driver ran over and killed her cat on the bike lane on Friday.
