NEW YORK (AP) – A “Project Runway” finalist admits that she “gently” tossed her cat onto a bed. But Kenley Collins denies that she used the feline as a weapon during a spat with her ex-fiance.

Collins spoke Wednesday after a Brooklyn court hearing. She was told that an assault charge against her would be reduced to a misdemeanor.

Zak Penley told authorities Collins woke him by hurling the cat in his face. He said the cat-apault was followed by a laptop toss. Three apples and some water also made it into the mix.

Collins had a sharp-tongued reputation on the Bravo TV fashion-design competition. Penley, an artist and musician, wrote a song called “CAT?” for Collins’ “Runway” finale.

Collins was arrested March 17.
