LINCOLN, Neb. (CNN) -- A 20-year-old in Nebraska is facing animal cruelty charges after police say he stuffed his kitten Shadow inside of a bong.

Sheriff's deputies found the 6-month-old kitten inside a make-shift bong -- as it was being smoked.

The bong is made of plexiglass, about the size of a shoebox, and had been taped shut with the cat inside, according to investigators.

Deputies were looking for Acea Schomaker, 20, on a warrant for possession of marijuana. They found him at home south of Lincoln and say he was smoking the bong with the cat inside.

Tests are being done to make sure Shadow doesn't have long-term effects. The kitten will be found another home.
