A cat that was wrapped in duct tape and then dumped in a north Philadelphia woman's yard was later discovered covered so tightly from paw to tail in industrial-strength duct tape that she could not even walk.
Law enforcement officers brought the cat to the local Pennsylvania Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (PSPCA) shelter, where it took an hour to sedate the cat and then cut the tape off of her fur. They were able to successfully remove the duct tape and the cat, nicknamed "Sticky," is now doing well.
"She's doing great. She is really happy and playful, which leads us to believe she came from a household. 'Sticky' didn't even lose much fur when vets removed the duct tape," said Liz Williamson of the PSPCA.
"Sticky" is not available for adoption yet because the PSPCA is giving the owners some time to step forward and claim her.
The PSPCA wants to get to the bottom of this and find out who would do such a sick thing to an innocent animal - and I'm sure all pet lovers feel that way, too. They are offering a $1,000 reward to anyone who provides information leading to a conviction of the person or persons responsible. No arrests have been made and so far authorities don't have any useful leads. If you have any information about who may have done this, please call the animal cruelty hotline at 866.601.7722.
Hopefully, those responsible for harming this loving animal will be punished for their cruel actions.

Believe me when I say, I do not know why anyone do such a thing to nice tabby cat like this. It is very sad. Who every do this should be wrapped in duct tape, neck to toe and thrown in holding cell for 48-hours, no food or water. See how they like it. Then we take half their skins off when we remove tape. Serve them right. Also need to be neutered so they do not breed more stupid humans.
Pet abuse is way too common. Do you know what to do if you suspect animal abuse?
