In Port St. Lucie, Florida, an 11-year-old boy has been charged with felony animal cruelty for abusing his pet cat. The small black cat “pooped” in the boy’s bedroom.

According to the Port St. Lucie Police Facebook page, the incident occurred on Tuesday; a neighbor videoed the disturbing incident and called police. The child could be seen throwing the cat named Ray into the air six times, throwing the cat to the ground four times and then kicking the defenseless animal.

“During the videoing of the incident, the suspect is seen several times grabbing the cat, throwing it in the air, and letting it land on the ground. At times the cat would hit the ground and attempt to run away only to have the suspect chase the cat down and throw it again,” posted the police department.

Police interviewed the 11-year-old after getting permission from his mother on Thursday. Police officers and Animal Control officers went to the suspect’s home and seized two other cats and a bird. The cats were taken to a local veterinarian for evaluation. Ray sustained soft tissue injury to his tail; the other cat was in good health.


The 11 year old suspect was arrested and transported to the Juvenile Assessment Center.

    And this is how it starts, with abuse to animals, He needs to be put away before he reaches the serial killer mode! If he is this disturbed at age 11 then I doubt there is much hope for rehabilitation of this brat! I’m glad they got the pets out of this environment I hope they are never able to get more!

    Nope…need some police brutality on this little asshole.
    Known Fact the cops like to abuse people..especially the innocents
    Why when you have little pukes like this to use as target practice
    This would be doing the world a favour

    Wow, he’s started young! But then I’ve always said animal abuse usually starts in childhood – at the very least by pulling wings of flies etc. For the child’s sake I hope he is compelled to the appropriate therapy or programme to address all the “issues” he obviously has including anger management otherwise his criminal activity will only escalate until he finds himself detained for a long stint in jail.

      Nothing will Help this kid!!! Watch the CNN special about Ted Bundy … It is the belief that Psychopathic ( which is what this kid will be dx with upon adult hood) tends to be something wrong with the brain at birth!!!! Jeffery Daumer is another that hurt small animals moving up the food chain to humans at a very early age..

    Disgusting little brat!! Do the same thing to him so he understands what this poor kitten endured!! Otherwise he will move into babies, children, & then adults!!

  7. Suzie Q says:

    This little demon should be in jail forever!! He has no empathy as this poor little kitten cried and this piece of crap continued to kick him!!
    At least the authorities took ALL the animals!! I would watch him if he gets out, with any younger siblings!!

    This kid is disgusting and disturbing and needs to be locked away.
    The mother also needs to be charged because she had to know what was going on
