A Bronx teenager roasted her ex-roommate’s kitten to death in a stove – then brushed off the incident as a joke when she was busted, authorities said Thursday.

“I hate cats,” Cheyenne Cherry, 17, allegedly told investigators when asked about the heartless crime.

Cherry’s confession came after she was arrested Wednesday by the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.

She and an unidentified juvenile allegedly broke into Valerie Hernandez’s Tinton Ave. apartment on May 6 and trashed the place.

Then in a shocking act of animal abuse, they tossed the woman’s kitten, Tiger Lily, into the stove and cranked up the temperature, ASPCA assistant director Joe Pentangelo said.
