NY Daily News ^

Posted on 05/06/2014 4:03:12 PM PDT by Perdogg

The cat is in the bag — and the pussy is hiding out with his mom.

It took 16 rescuers and several hours of chasing to capture the stray cat that managed to survive being kicked like a football by a Brooklyn punk — a vicious attack that was captured on video.

That should have been their first clue that kitty was OK.

Not necessarily.
I helped animal control try and catch an car injured turkey once. A local cop finally grabbed it and was severely beat up by it (ripped jacket, bite marks on face, scratches, ...). They bird had a broken leg and still took down the cop.

Wish the comments about the YouTube abortion video had as much outrage as kicking a cat. Our priorities are askew.

Defense lawyer William Hair said Robinson has "a good job" that he's held for about two years.

Hair also admitted he had not seen the sick footage, but nevertheless insisted it's "unclear who is in the video."

How Hair could reach that conclusion is a mystery. He is legally blind.

My one little cat went missing 3 days ago. Crawled home today. Eye, head, internal trauma. Vet said someone had abused it..either kicking or hitting with a board. Had to put him to sleep after about 250 dollars worth of treatment and tests. Poor Kitty.

“That cat is fine, I told y’all the cat is fine,” his mom, Mary Kirby, barked after she returned to the Brevoort Houses with her sullen 21-year-old son. “There’s nothing wrong with that cat.”

Maybe so Mrs. Kirby, but there are some serious problems with you and that animal you raised! What a brave, brave man, brave enough to put his heinous act on the internet but then too much of coward to face the results. For Christ's sake the cat wasn't even white!

How awful. I’d like to mete out the same kind of beating to the person who did that to your cat. At least your kitty was with the person who loved him when he died.

I’m sorry, Sock. Of course, cats can get into a lot of “stuff” out there. Every day when our Brutus trots out the door for her daily outdoors time, I tell her, “Be careful, Brutus!”

Someone who will abuse a defenseless animal, will do the same to humans.

disgusting.

I couldn’t watch that cat kicking video.
I’ve read the story and the comments that was enough for me.
And,I’m so sorry to hear about your kitty who ever did that is a piece of sh*t.
My cat tends to hang out in the back yard looking for gophers.My neighbor called today to be on the look out for his cat,she has been missing now for 2 days.

Bring him out to my farm,I’ve got a quarterhorse in the barn that would kick him into low orbit.

I am sorry for your loss. I hope the perps are found and punished appropriately. Sub human trash, no doubt.

I felt sick to my stomach watching that video and even more so after reading that the bastard walked. The kitty was lucky this time. Next time, maybe not. Will it take this bastard striking again and killing him - or another animal or human - to make him face any serious consequences? What message will this give to others who entertain the idea of torturing animals for fun? It is time we stop treating such horrific cruelty as a joke.

I agree 100%...harsher and stricter penalties and punishment are needed. Animal cruelty makes me sick. I still haven’t been able to look at the video.

No they're not, there's plenty of anti-abortion threads here that you can jump on. This is a thread about animal abuse and you should respect it as such.........thanks

As a side note, where's your outrage about the 300 children who were kidnapped in Nigeria?

While that makes me sad to read of your wonderful pet, it also enrages me that someone would treat a harmless animal like that...........

Excuse me. I thought Free Republic was an open forum for the exchange of ideas, not a closed clique of participants.
I’m fully aware of the Nigerian girls also, thank you. I’ll pay more attention next time.

Indeed it is and that is why threads are topic specific and common courtesy frowns on thread hijacking. Specifically, posting comments totally unrelated to the topic being discussed which is precisely what you did.........

You've been around here long enough, you should know that........
