According to KNBC, the kitten's name is Spots. The feline was recovering at an Inland Empire animal hospital on Sunday.

Spots now has a cast on one leg and wrapping on another leg. The vet said she suffered internal injuries as well. Spots will be staying at the animal hospital so that vets can monitor her progress.

The name of the 16-year-old suspect would not be disclosed, due to his age.
