This is the shocking moment a pet owner mercilessly beats his kitten because it did not come to him when he called.

The cruel cat owner, identified as Hakan G., was filmed beating the tiny feline at his home in the plush district of Bahcelievler in the north-western Turkish city of Istanbul and the footage was shared on social media.

According to reports, the textile businessman grew angry with his kitten after it failed to come to him when he called it for feeding time.

The man told his children to leave the room and closed the door behind them so that he could ‘punish’ the cat.

In the footage, he is heard threatening the tiny kitten: “I will break your legs.”

The video also shows him lifting the cat by the scruff of its neck so that he could repeatedly smack it with a metal rod.

At one point, the cat escapes and sits on top of the sofa while the heavyset man mercilessly whips it with the rod.

After the video was shared on social media, netizens complained to the police and Hakan G. has reportedly been arrested.

According to local media, he divorced from his wife, who is the custodian of their three children, several years ago.

At the time, she filed a complaint against him for threatening behaviour and he was slapped with a restraining order.
