In Hamilton, Ohio, a tiny, defenseless kitten was deliberately set on fire last week. Her fur on her rear legs, tail and back were singed off, reports Abc6News.Litten the kitten 3

Now named Litten, the kitten estimated to be six-weeks old, was very fortunate as veterinarians tell us her fur actually protected her delicate skin from being burned. The tragic event occurred on August 31 on South Second Street, when a witness spotted the kitten crying as she ran out from beneath the bushes. At the time she was not on fire, however the smell of burning fur was apparent. Litten the kitten

The rescue group Joseph’s Legacy is caring for Litten who has been in foster care and reported to be doing quite well. The friendly kitten will be eligible for adoption when she is ready. To help the rescue with Litten’s veterinary expenses, please click here. 

No one witnessed the actual abuse, and the Butler County dog warden is unable to institute an investigation until someone comes forward with information. Don’t let this kitten’s abuse go unchecked – who knows – it could be a child next. Animal cruelty has been closely linked to violent crimes towards people. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Butler County Dog Warden at 513.785.6542. Be the voice for those who cannot speak.
