Sticky Kitty - The Duct Taped Cat

Duct tape can be used for a lot of things: patching holes, hanging posters, even making wallets.

Still, one thing you should never use it for is making a suit for your cat.

A tan and black striped kitty was found sporting her second coat in a Philadelphia yard Tuesday.

A woman quickly called in the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals to rescue the feline after spotting it along the 2200 block of Edgley Street, officials said.

They believe the cat was dumped there.

Vets were able to remove the tape without harming the cat and she is expected to be fine.

The Pennsylvania SPCA is offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to a conviction in the case.

    First I'd like to say I disagree with the playful title for this article, "Sticky Kitty-The Duct Taped Cat". It makes it sound like it was a harmless prank instead of the act of abuse that it was. I'm really surprised the cat wasn't seriously injured; I'd love to see whomever did this wrapped up in duct tape themselves for a while and then have it ripped off! I agree w/ Anonymous further down that this type of action is practice for what they'd do to a human. Studies have theorized that people who abuse animals are that more likely to harm/abuse humans. So, even people who don't particularly care for animals should still be alarmed when these types of events occur and should demand harsh punishments for animal abusers. Poor kitty!

    I agree whole-heartedly with Scott. If I caught someone doing something like that, abusing an animal, they would be in the hospital, and I'd be in cuffs.

    You wanna see me in jail for "assault and battery"? Let me catch somebody doing something like this. People that do things like this are why I like animals better than most people. God bless the doggies and the kitties, and all the other fuzzy-wuzzies.

    there are some sick people out there to do this. Remember what they will do to an animal is just practice for what they will do to humans.
