-

Hollywood Actress, Jamie Lynn Spears called Tesla “a secret cat-killer” and told CEO Elon Musk that he owes her “a couple cats.”

In a now-deleted Instagram video, the 29-year-old actress, singer, and sister of Britney Spears said that more than one of her cats has been run over by a Tesla because they never heard the car coming. Teslas, like other electric cars, run quieter than vehicles with gas-powered engines.

“We have now lost – I don’t want to tell you how many cats – because they don’t hear the Tesla crank and unfortunate things happen and it’s really devastating and tragic for everyone involved,” she said in a since-deleted Instagram video posted Friday.

“Somebody’s gotta let Elon Musk know that Tesla is a secret cat-killer,” Spears said in the video.

“Elon Musk, let’s figure this out,” Spears said. “You owe me a couple cats.”

After the post his gotten a lot of atention from her fans, who ask if she responsible for the deaths, she clarified that she had not run over any cats.

In her other post, Spears recommends that “since the Tesla is so quiet,” the cars could make a noise to alert cats of their presence, though she also noted that the deaths could be down to user error.

However, according to a CNN report, electric and hybrid vehicles are required to make sounds of at least 43 decibels when traveling at less than 18.6mph, referring to a US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration policy from September.
