But this blow was arrested by the hand of my wife … I withdrew my arm from her grasp and buried the axe in her brain. She fell dead upon the spot, without a groan” (Poe). This is very similar in presentation to how The Tale-Tale Heart presents it, not that big of a deal that you did the act. The narrator kills his wife without a second thought because he wanted to kill the cat, but what I take from it is that he does not care about his wife enough that killing her does not mean anything to him, and that is insanity. In The Tell-Tale Heart the narrator does a very similar thing to what happens in The Black Cat, kills someone with no feelings of remorse for a very arbitrary reason.
