According to the cat’s family, Kroecker had been told numerous times not to torture the cat but continued, eventually using physical torment. It was after the cat sprayed Kroecker, police stated, that he beat the poor animal with a baseball bat. The family reportedly found their cat lying in a pool of blood shortly after Kroecker left the room. The cat suffered puncture wounds to the back of the throat, per veterinary reports, and the cat’s eyeball protruded from the socket. Kroecker maintained his innocence and apparently only told police that the cat “pissed me off.”

Dear District Attorney Smith,

A cat suffered serious injuries after the poor animal was allegedly beaten with a baseball bat. The suspect maintained his innocence but apparently told police that the cat sprayed him and “pissed [him] off.” We demand justice for this poor cat.

Per veterinary records, the cat suffered multiple injuries including a protruding eyeball and puncture wounds to the back of the throat. Kroecker’s family stated that Kroecker was known to torture the cat and had just left the room when they found the cat in a pool of blood. Police reportedly found a plastic bat next to the cat with cat fur lodged in its head. The cat is receiving treatment at Metzger Animal Hospital. Kroecker is awaiting trial.

This cruelty cannot go unpunished. We demand that you seek the maximum penalty in this case.

    What the person did was abominable. No cat deserves to be abused. It is repulsive that they beat the cat with a baseball bat. People really shouldn’t be allowed to keep cats as pets. Being an outdoor cat is better than being an indoor pet. The cat can roam freely, get its own food, and won’t get abused. There’s a lot of sick people in the world.
