A five-year-old boy was caught kicking and punching his neighbour’s cat in Manchester. After a few minutes of torture, in a desperate attempt to defend herself, Sky scratched the boy’s neck.
Neil Fisher, the owner of the cat, said that neither the animal or the boy ended up seriously injured. However, when he confronted the child’s parents, they slammed their door in his face.
“If you watch it, after a while she’s just had enough. You can’t blame her. Two times he tries to pick her up that backs off when she sticks her claws out,” Fisher said.
“It makes me so angry that anyone, even a child, thinks it’s OK to treat an animal like this. It doesn’t say a great deal for their upbringing,” he added.
