BEDFORD-STUYVESANT — A stray cat that was filmed being kicked across a Bed-Stuy apartment complex last month has found a new home, according to the ASPCA.

The one-year-old tom cat, named King by rescuers, was adopted on Sunday after footage of a man laughing as he kicked the creature into the air at the Brevoort Houses left animal lovers sickened.

The cat was traced and given emergency veterinary care by the ASPCA, charity officials said.

King's new family, which has not been identified, has "extensive cat-owning experience" and "a single-cat household with children over age 12," the pet-rescuers said.

King was adopted just hours after becoming available, according to ASPCA Adopt

On May 28, 10 newborn puppies were left in a cage by the side of the road in Springtown, Texas, still suckling their dead mother, who had been shot, the Dallas Morning News reported.

The world's largest cat rescue, where more than 700 cats roam a 12 acre plot of land in Parlier, Calif.

Since its founding in 1992, the no-cage, no-kill, lifetime cat sanctuary and adoption center has saved more than 20,000 cats and 6,000 dogs, not to mention the "handful of goats" who also roam the property helping keep the grass in check.

"I've always felt that, if they don't have a home, at least they have a life," said Cat House founder Lynea Lattanzio in an introductory video about the sanctuary. "To me, it's not a life if they're in a cage. They need to be able to run full speed and climb a tree. That's a cat."

Photographer Christina Gandolfo paid the sanctuary a visit in the

People with overdue bills have long complained of harassment from debt collectors, from late-night phone calls to frightening in-person visits. Now it appears the industry has found far more troubling strategy: Filing lawsuits against debtors -- often, consumer advocates say, on the theory that they won't ever show up to court to defend themselves.

The consequences are dire when the debtors don't appear in court. A judge can put a lien on someone's home, garnish wages, even freeze bank accounts -- all without a person ever getting a chance to fight their case. And at times, collectors file suit in error. Consumers interviewed for this story described cases where they were never told they
