RSPCA Queensland has confirmed Marcello, the cat who went viral after a young man hurled it over a fence in a cruel act, has finally recovered after a rough few months.
The distressing video in question shows this man and his friends laughing as the cat collides with the exterior brick wall of the neighbouring house.
A media representative for RSPCA Queensland says they were quick on the case, appealing to the public for information to help identify the assailant.
Thanks to the help of the public, the following day the man was identified and Marcello was seized and admitted into RSPCA care.
Marcello was diagnosed with soft tissue bruising, stress due to his treatment and cat-flu, which resulted in him having to have an eye surgically removed.
After months of recovering, Marcello is finally ready to move on with his life and the one-year-old is looking for a forever home.
