The kitten - named Cinders - was taken to a veterinary clinic and has since been adopted into a loving family.
'It's been a long road, and one that still has some miles to go, but she's here. She's alive. She's thriving. She's such a little fighter,' Toowong Family Vet said in a statement.
'We are incredibly disappointed in the outcome of the court case, mainly due to how horrendous the injuries were that Cinders sustained, but also need to be grateful that this sweet little soul is still here, still living, breathing, and able to love and be loved.'
Nurse Tahlia Woodlock from Toowong Family Vet said Cinders will have ongoing health issues due to the trauma she experienced.
