Such would be an expression of your power over them, should you have been successful in doing so.
I know nothing of the case, but I would imagine that these lads have 'hierarchy' issues. Torturing these kittens probably made them feel powerful. Maybe they themselves are quite weak and 'authorityless' in human society, and so resort to inflicting pain on smaller creatures that won't fight back to vent some of their frustrations in being low on their own species' pecking order...

Or maybe I'm full of shit and just wanking on about nothing....
G'day Heiro. You've been on this "strong can bully the weak" trip for a while now, haven't you? And yes I would kick the crap out of them.
