The cat, named "Quattro" was saved by 2 teenagers but ultimately succumbed to its injuries and was put down days later.

The boys have been suspended from school and if found guilty, will undergo psychiatric evaluations and receive mental health counseling. Fines and community service may also be a possibility.
