Horrible sight. . . The footage begins with West Ham star Zuma’s cat being knocked down and booted on the kitchen floor before the frightened pus escapes.

The club condemned Zuma’s actions and imposed a 250,000 fine, which it said was the maximum fine it could pay.

The West Ham defender is seen attacking a pet in his £ 2 million mansion while his brother is filming it.

Zuma, 27, drops Mogi and boots him in the middle air on the kitchen floor.

The French international then chases the animal around his dining room in front of a child while the cameraman laughs.

Zuma also throws a pair of designer shoes at the pet – who cowardly tries to escape.

In one last clip, he is seen slapping a cat on the face – and out of the baby’s arms.

Here’s how:

Zuma’s cats have now been rescued by the RSCPA after thousands of complaints were lodged.

Last Tuesday night, Zuma issued an apology for the attack and insisted it was an isolated incident.

He said: “I want to apologize for what I did. There is no excuse for my behavior, which I sincerely regret.

“I would also like to apologize to everyone who has been bothered by this video. I would like to assure everyone that our two cats are perfectly fine and healthy.

“They are loved and cherished by our whole family, and this treatment was an isolated incident that will never happen again.”

The former £ 30 million Chelsea player is thought to have been angry that the Bengal – an expensive breed of pet cat that looks like a little leopard – had messed up his house.

A source said: “Kurt seems to be angry at the cat for accidentally breaking some kind of bouquet and tearing light out of the kitchen cupboard.

“But what he does next is completely unacceptable. Kurt kicks him, throws shoes at him and then slaps him. The poor cat looked very scared.”

The disturbing footage was filmed by Zuma’s brother Yuan and posted on SnapChat on Sunday afternoon – a day after the center-back’s appearance for West Ham in the FA Cup.

The first clip was titled “sa commence”, which translates into English as “it is starting”. Subsequent clips have replaced it with a dozen laughing face emojis.

A spokesman for the RSPCA said: “This is a very disturbing video. Punishing or otherwise kicking, slapping or slapping an animal is never acceptable.”

Dr Maggie Roberts of Charity Cats Protection said: “Anyone who has seen or suspected of treating an animal, whether it be physical abuse, should be ignored or given another form of cruelty to the RSPCA. ۔

“Police work closely with the RSPCA to investigate incidents of animal cruelty. Cats are emotional creatures and experience pain and fear. Killing a cat will only hurt them physically and mentally.”

“We noticed that some people who watched the video online thought it was funny. We assure them it’s not a laughing matter.”

Zuma – who has won the Premier League twice since joining Chelsea in 2014 – has scored one goal in 12 games since moving to the Hammers this summer.

Five years imprisonment under strict new laws

Animal abusers now face harsh prison sentences under a new bill passed in parliament last year.

Under the Animal Welfare (Punishment) Bill, the worst offenders can be imprisoned for up to five years instead of just six months.

Dog fight organizers, farmers who ignore horses, and thugs who abuse dogs or kittens could all face long prison terms.

The new legislation – backed by Prime Minister Boris Johnson and his animal-loving wife Kerry – comes after a four-year campaign by the Beatrice Cats & Dogs Home in London.

It mandates CCTV in every slaughterhouse in England and prohibits the export of live animals for fattening and slaughter.

Zoo standards should be improved and domestic pets should be protected.

The law says that vertebrates have the right to be happy as well as to avoid suffering.

Battersea Home started the Crusades when it was discovered that fly tippers were given harsher punishments than those who abused animals.

When the bill went into effect last June, comedian Ricky Gervais, 60 – a dedicated animal rights activist – said: Appropriate punishment will be given.

“This is one that I hope will serve as a barrier to anyone who thinks of harming an innocent creature.”

Pip worth £ 2,000

Bengalis are among the most expensive and rare pet cats in Britain.

This breed originated in the 1970s in the United States with wild Asian leopard cats that were crossed with taboos.

Bengal kittens now cost about £ 2,000.

Their spotted coats make them look like little leopards, and their athletic, slender bodies have seen them become valuable pets in the cat world.

He is known for his very friendly personality and is liked for his dog-like loyalty.

Celebrity owners include Twilight star Kirsten Stewart, 31, TV favorite Jonathan Ross, 61, and reality star Courtney Kardashian, 42.
