Do you think the cat turned into Nastassja Kinski afterward? Or does that only happen if the victim dies?

So you haven't seen the movie I take it. IIRC, the cat in the cage is her brother.
BTW, I'd be remiss if I didn't post Bowie's awesome song from that flick.

It has been many years since I saw the film, but I'll never forget Nastassja stalking a bunny in the buff.

This incident happened just before the vet started his combat tour, with the vet saying that he remembers seeing the crater from the explosion. The vet also said that since no one fessed up, the platoon in question had still not rotated out, and was still on active combat duty even when the vet completed his tour.

A poodle named Cachy, in Caballito, Buenos Aires, fell from 13 floors and fatally hit 75-year-old Marta Espina, killing both instantly. In the course of the events, 46-year-old Edith Sola, who came to see the incident, was fatally hit by a bus. An unidentified man, who witnessed her death, had a heart attack and also died on his way to the hospital.

Apparent social media stunt leads to more than a dozen arrests in Miami

The suspects, who blocked an intersection while making donuts in the center, are believed to be part of a “car club” that organized stunts around the area.

Let's give Left Coast Man his due:

California man 'kills fellow Covid patient with oxygen tank'

A 37-year-old man who allegedly used an oxygen tank to beat to death a fellow Covid patient in his California hospital bed last week has been charged with murder and hate crime.

Jesse Martinez became upset when the 82-year-old man sharing his hospital room started praying, according to Los Angeles police.

Mr Martinez then allegedly grabbed an oxygen tank and bludgeoned the elderly patient.

The victim died the following day.

The pair, who police say did not know each other, were receiving treatment for coronavirus in a two-person room in Antelope Valley Hospital in Lancaster in southern California.

That was the top of the pole, the base (square) is at the other end (front of the car). Most likely this pole was hit by a car and the light fixture arm snapped off when it hit the ground.... that is what you are seeing at the rear.
