There have been a number of instances reported recently in which cats and kittens have been thrown from moving cars. There is a theory that this is some sort of perverse game that has been stimulated but images on social media. In Birmingham in November a tiny cat named Annabelle was thrown from a moving vehicle close to a cat rescue centre. Other instances occurred this year in the USA in Austin and New Durham. Cat protection groups are keeping a close eye on this disturbing trend.
