The footage sparked outrage when it was posted online last year.
Abed, who is believed to live with his parents in a smart detached home in Northfield, Birmingham, was identified following a joint West Midlands Police and RSPCA investigation.
He appeared in court last week where he pleaded guilty to causing unnecessary suffering to the cats, between August 1, 2016, and August 1, 2017, contrary to Section 4 of the Animal Welfare Act.
Birmingham Magistrates’ Court heard how an RSPCA investigation was launched after three videos were posted on Facebook showing the defendant enticing three different cats towards him as though he is going to pet them.
But as soon as he gains their trust he grabs them and throws them in the air while he is heard laughing.

One clip was filmed in Guiting Road, in Selly Oak, Birmingham, it is understood.
Another was taken in the St Dennis Road area of the city.
It is not known who the cats belong to, so the RSPCA has been unable to check if they were injured.
Abed was identified as the man in the videos by members of the public.
A warrant was issued and his mobile phone was seized as part of the investigation.
RSPCA inspector Herchy Boal, who investigated the case, said: ‘This was a disgusting abuse of trust, Abed can be seen enticing the defenceless pets and then he abuses them and for some reason he derives some kind of pleasure from this.
‘These are people’s pets and as we have not traced cats in the videos we don’t know how they have been affected, if they have been traumatised by his actions or indeed if they were injured.
‘This court action shows how seriously the RSPCA takes acts of cruelty. We worked in partnership with the police during this investigation and are grateful for their assistance.’
As well as a lifetime ban on keeping animals Abed was also ordered to complete a 12-month community order for which he must carry out 250 hours of unpaid work and take part in a Rehabilitation Activity Requirement for 25 days.
He was also ordered to pay £616 costs and a £85 victim surcharge.
It is understood Abed was sacked by his employer after he was identified.
