A new viral ‘trend’ is just guys launching their cats into the air and hurting them
What the hell is going on
People are always going to think that teens have literally lost it when a new trend emerges – even if it's as innocent as wearing silly bands or bonging Mountain Dew outside the post office.

In the last week, a number of teen boys have been filmed doing this:
The 16-year-old from Ontario, California has not been named as he is a juvenile, but he has been arrested and charged with animal abuse.
The cat he threw, named Spots, survived the fall. Spots was photographed later with tiny casts on its two front paws – the impact of landing on the ground gave it a leg fracture.

PETA's humane education division, TeachKind, plans to offer classroom materials to help local schools teach kids that violence toward any living being is wrong."
