He later confessed to killing the pet - name Ryzhik - by putting it in the washing machine after drinking four bottles of vodka.Vasiliev first sent his partner (who has not been named) a video of the cat in the washing machine on a hot wash cycle, in an attempt to get her to take him back.When the severely injured cat miraculously survived the first cycle, Vasiliev put it back into the washing machine on a 30 minute cyle with 800 spins a minute, which killed the cat.
