The tabby who was mummified in duct tape and unceremoniously dumped in a yard in the 2200 block of Edgley Street in North Philadelphia has had the duct tape removed, and is doing very well. Despite her ordeal, she has exhibited affectionate and playful behavior with the staff of the Pennsylvania SPCA.
Liz Williamson of the PSPCA reports that “She’s doing great. She is really happy and playful, which leads us to believe she came from a household”.
“This is a very very very sweet cat,” George Bengal, of the PSPCA, told Fox News. “I can’t imagine someone doing this to this cat. I mean, this is a domestic cat. Obviously, it was owned, it can be handled very easily.”
The cat cannot be adopted until sufficient time has been given for the cats owners to come forward. The owners are not believed to be the perpertrator of this crime.
Donations have poured in, reflecting the public’s outrage at this act of cruelty. The reward is now $2000 for information leading to the conviction of the person(s) responsible for taping and dumping the cat. Anyone with information on the crime should contact the SPCA’s Cruelty Hotline on 1-866-601-7722.
