A cruel thug who brutally beat a cat in a video shared on Snapchat is being hunted.
Animal charity the RSPCA has appealed for information to help catch the man after the sickening clip was widely shared.
He is shown grabbing the terrified pet by the scruff of the neck before hitting its face.
The footage then shows the man give the helpless cat three hard smacks across the head, before throwing it on a bed.
The grey and white animal was thrown with such force that it bounced in the air before crying out and trying to hide in a corner.
The attacker and the person filming are heard laughing.
It was reported to the RSPCA on May 25 after a shocked member of the public saw the footage.
RSPCA Inspector Boris Lasserre said: “We are appealing to the wider public to see if anyone can recognise the person subjecting the cat to this deliberate and violent beating and also the man who is filming this sick attack.
“This is shocking behaviour and totally unacceptable. It is quite clear from the video that the cat is terrified even before it receives the repeated blows and is violently thrown down onto the bed.
"We are appealing to anyone who may recognise something on this video to please come forward: it may be that they know the person, the cat, the room or the Snapchat username which posted the video – ‘the nyah Way’.
“It may be friends, family, or even the parents who may not be aware that the family pet is being subjected to such gratuitous brutality.
"I have a specific set of questions for these individuals when they are found.
"The laughing from both of them throughout the attack shows they have a very worrying lack of humanity and empathy for the suffering of a living creature.”
Boris added: “We are keen to identify the individual filming and the individual subjecting the cat the beating. We are now hoping the general public can help provide us with the information we need to bring those responsible to justice.”
Anyone with information about this should call the RSPCA appeals line on 0300 123 8018.
