Leon Teague, 18, was arrested after he poured hot boiling water on a cat for “banter” which is another word for playing a joke. He posted the video on social media for likes, that is when someone reported it to the local authorities. The teenager was sentenced to three years in prison which he feels was a harsh sentence. The cat was seen screaming in agony in the video as Teague threw the water over him. Felines & Canines in Chicago saw the video and decided to help the cat by taking him in and giving the cat the correct treatment.
