That is the second a person grabs a ‘frail’ cat and throws it throughout the road in a disgusting assault.
The surprising incident, which was caught on CCTV, occurred at round 1pm on Tuesday, April 12 on Palmerston Drive in Litherland. Within the distressing video, a person stops when he sees a black cat sitting on a wall behind a wheelie bin.
He then seems to succeed in over to pet the animal earlier than clenching his fist to seize it. The cat flinches as the person picks it up and throws it throughout the road.
The cat runs away in misery and the person continues to stroll off down the highway after the fully unprovoked assault.
The household of the cat, Lily, who’ve requested to stay nameless, mentioned a lady dwelling on their avenue advised them she noticed a person hurting a cat and inspired them to verify their CCTV. Once they seemed by means of the footage they have been shocked to search out out it was nine-year-old Lily being harm.
One of many house owners mentioned: “My sister couldn’t stop crying after seeing the video and I think my parents were more shocked and angry. My sister’s dad put a post on Facebook and people are absolutely outraged and disgusted.
“Lily is thought on the street for at all times being exterior and sitting within the neighbours’ plant pot. I actually hope it hasn’t affected her going exterior. She’s actually previous and frail too.
“I’ve moved out and have two cats myself and would be distraught if something like that happened to mine, so close to our home where they should be safe.”
The household has now made the choice to maintain Lily indoors “in case this is something this man does regularly”, and have despatched the CCTV footage to Merseyside Police.
