    Who could hurt a kitten?

    Kitty cruelty will not be tolerated.

    A McHenry County judge sentence one cat abuser to a year of probation, fined him $500 and ordered him to pay $1,127 in restitution to the owner of Boogy, the cat he beat nearly to death with a golf club.

    Donald Conrad, 30, was convicted of wolloping his roommate's 7-month-old cat with a short iron. The attack left the poor kitty with a broken jaw and a missing eye.

    In what has to be the most misguided defense strategies in a long time, Conrad's attorney says his client did not beat the cat, but merely threw it out of the house.

    Boogy's owner, Dana Borzick, says it cost her $1,700 in veterinarian bills to save her pet kitty.

    Borzick says the attack occurred while she and her fiance were sharing a residence with Conrad.
