Don’t mess with a cat: Kid attacks a cat until she fights back. Cat’s revenge: Manchester boy caught kicking and punching a cat before chucking it at a bush.
A five-year-old boy was caught on camera trying to kick and punch a neighbour’s cat before throwing it in a bush – but will not face police action because of his age.
Shocking CCTV footage shows the child in a ‘here comes trouble’ T-shirt swiping at six-year-old Sky outside owner Neil Fisher’s Manchester home.
But brave Sky bounced back and scratched the boy’s neck as she attempted to defend herself after suffering eight minutes of abuse.
Today the boy’s grandmother accused Mr Fisher of trying to ‘shame’ the five-year-old, who has been ‘grounded’, was sent to his room and had his DVDs taken away.
She said: ‘He was punished for his act. It’s not like he got away with it. What’s done is done. Should we carry on punishing him?’
