Cat fighting for life after being thrown from moving car

Police are desperately appealing for information after a cat was critically injured after being hurled from a car on Sydney’s northern beaches.

Officers have been told a dark-coloured sedan was driving north on Barrenjoey Road in Newport, when the cat was thrown from the front passenger window onto the road about 5.35am on Friday.

A shocked motorist stopped to tend to the cat before a woman passing by rushed the animal to a local vet, where it’s expected to undergo surgery for its serious injuries.


An investigation into the horrific act has now been launched, with police appealing for anyone with information to come forward.

“In particular, officers would like to speak to anyone who was on Barrenjoey Road, near Cecil Road, between 5.25am and 5.40am yesterday morning and may have seen or have dashcam vision of a dark-coloured 2000 – 2005 model sedan, with white markings on the back window,” NSW Police said.
