The Westchester County SPCA says a 5-week-old kitten has survived being tossed out a third-floor window during a domestic argument.

SPCA enforcement director Ernest Lungaro says the 1-pound cat, a female named Precious, suffered a mouth injury but no broken bones. He says she apparently landed on all fours.

He says the cat was thrown from the window in a Yonkers apartment building on Sunday and hit the sidewalk.

At the time, the cat's owner was having a dispute with her ex-boyfriend.

Lungaro says the man fled and a warrant has been issued for him, alleging assault and animal abuse.

Lungaro said Tuesday that he has seen many instances of animal cruelty during domestic violence.

The fuzzy, white kitten with brown and black markings is now back with her owner.
