A New York groomer has been accused of abusing and beating up Nusha, a three-pound Burmese cat.
Igor Kisil, Nusha’s owner, alleges that his groomer beat his cat and caused her to bleed in June 2007.
Kisil said, “The cat was literally crying. That was the first time in my life where I saw an animal actually crying, with the tears on her eyes.”
He said his six-year-old cat was in pain, had blood on her face, and even a veterinarian said it was one of the worst cases of animal abuse he has ever seen.
The police were called, but Kisil was told that it wasn’t their jurisdiction. Kisil said that he never got an apology from the groomer.
The groomer faces criminal charges and a year in jail. The case goes to court next month.
