Collins spoke Wednesday after a Brooklyn court hearing. She was told that an assault charge against her would be reduced to a misdemeanor.
Her former flame, Zak Penley, told authorities that Collins woke him by hurling the cat in his face. He said that 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.
