In a sociopathic act of animal cruelty, an orange tabby was glued to a Minnesota interstate highway and abandoned.
Fortunately, a compassionate couple saw the forlorn cat at the side of the road, and thought he had been hit by a car. They stopped to investigate, and picked up the cat. Unfortunately, in so doing, the glue ripped off the cat’s paw pads and pulled out some of his claws.
“We’ve never seen anything like it,” said the Second Chance Rescue crew. “It’s a mouth dropper because you are just like are you kidding me? but they did it.” Second Chance named the cat Timothy and provided the necessary medical attention.
Timothy is recovering in the care of a foster family. Second Chance says the cat could be up for adoption once he’s recovered.
