SCRAPS says local elementary school kids severely abused cat

SPOKANE, Wash. - Officials at SCRAPS said local elementary children severely abused a cat that is now in their custody. 

According to a Facebook post, Achilles the cat was found with his pelvis dislocated from his spine and a dislocated right hip. 

SCRAPS said a man found the cat being tormented and kicked by children from Logan Elementary. 

The man told SCRAPS that Achilles was a long-time community cat who “greets all he meets” near the school. 

Achilles now has a 50/50 chance of survival and will need surgery to repair his hip.
