If a cat came scratching at me, I most likely would kick or beat the cat, too. That said, more details are needed for this story before a judgment can be rendered. So far, I’m on this man’s side.

You can’t be serious. I hate cats — I’m a dog owner — but I can’t envisage a situation where I might kick or beat a domestic cat. Certainly not to death, and certainly not in front of children. Would you really do that? I don’t believe it.
A full-on Feral cat might be a different story: for one thing it would be much bigger than 7 lbs, and for another thing it would be a matter of self-defense. But feral cats — the real ones — are in short supply in Worcester, Massachusetts: there are none. In this case we’re talking about a 7 lb domestic kitty who had just given birth to kittens. Somebody’s pet.
Pretty shameful act, even if you don’t like cats.
