The stricken animal was rescued from the gutter and is now being cared for at Capricorn Animal Rescue at Padeswood, near Mold. A CAT has been thown into the street from the window of a moving car.
Onlookers waiting at a bus stop in Broughton saw the cat being tossed into the road near the Airbus factory car park.
After being rescued from the gutter the injured animal was taken to Capricorn Animal Rescue at Padeswood, near Mold.
Sheila Stewart ,of Capricorn, said the terrified cat was badly injured and covered in blood when he arrived.
“He was in a real mess. He was spitting blood, drooling blood, he had blood in his eyes,” she said. “He had an injured face and jaw and a broken and swollen nose.
“The vet was called immediately to treat the cat, which has been named Blackie by the centre’s staff.
“This sort of thing is not unusual unfortunately,” said Sheila. “The lady who brought him in was horrified but we get this all the time.
“Recently we had a cat slashed all over her body with a knife, we’ve had cats thrown to dogs, a pregnant cat thrown into an old oil drum full of oil, a six-month old kitten covered in tarmac.”
She said: “Some people have a need to dominate and hurt things weaker than themselves and that starts with animals.
“You’re never going to retrain those people because they can’t see that they’re doing anything wrong.
“All we can do is go into schools and youth clubs and Brownies and Scout groups and teach them about animal cruelty.
“It’s happening all over the country,” she added. “It’s a sad state of affairs. The hope is the next generation will do better.”
Blackie spent days on a drip and Sheila said: “He’s coming around well. His mouth is still tender and you can see the line across his nose where it’s been broken but the swelling on his eye has gone down.”
“But he’s still terrified. He doesn’t understand what’s happening.”
