Kitten Survives Being Thrown From 3rd Floor

Posted: Updated:

YONKERS, N.Y. (AP) - A 5-week-old kitten named Precious has survived being tossed out a suburban New York third-floor window during a domestic argument.
    
Westchester County SPCA enforcement director Ernest Lungaro says the 1-pound female kitten suffered a mouth injury but no broken bones. He says the kitten apparently landed on all fours.
    
He says the kitten was thrown from the window in a Yonkers apartment building on Sunday and hit the sidewalk. At the time, the kitten's owner was having a dispute with her ex-boyfriend.
    
Lungaro says the man fled and a warrant has been issued for him, alleging assault and animal abuse.
    
Lungaro said Tuesday he has seen many instances of animal cruelty during domestic violence.
    
The fuzzy, white kitten with brown and black markings is now back with her owner.
