The disturbing video shows the thug, who is wearing a shirt and tie, pick up the black and white cat that is quietly sitting on a moped outside a house in London.
The thug then turns around holding the cat then letting it go and drop-kicking it with his left foot. The cat then flies through the air and hits a parked car as a thud can be heard.
The Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals believes the cat may have suffered severe injuries as a result of the abuse.
The organization is now appealing for anyone who recognizes the man to come forward. It is not known if the cat belonged to him.
RSPCA assistant director of the inspectorate, Dermot Murphy, told the London Evening Standard “We would like to hear from anyone who saw this incident or who recognizes the street in which it occurred so we can look further into this.”
“It is completely unacceptable to treat a cat in this way and he or she could well have suffered some severe injuries from such a brutal kick.”
“We understand that such acts of cruelty can be very upsetting and emotive and we would urge anyone who does recognize the culprit or area to pass the information on to us and not be tempted to act on it themselves.”
