In Mansfield, Ohio, a young kitten is slowly recovering from injuries suffered when a culprit allegedly set off a firecracker in its rectum. The Richland County Humane Society posted the disturbing news on their Facebook page July 10:
“We are currently at the vet’s office with this cat that had a firecracker set off in her rectum. We have no words. We need all your good thoughts and vibes for her. We aren’t sure if she will make it, it depends on the extent of the damage. She lived in the PineBridge apartment complex at 135 E. Cook Rd. We believe it happened within the past 24 hours. We don’t know who did it, although we wish we did… (*Edited to add that she was a neighborhood cat for the past year or so*).”
Named Katy P., the kitten underwent surgery at the Phillips Animal Hospital and her condition remains guarded. The kitten’s latest update has been more positive.
“We stopped to see Katy P this morning. Her appetite has improved and she seems to be more alert and interactive. She still has not had a bowel movement so she still isn’t out of the woods.”
To donate to Katy P’s medical expenses, call 419.526.4212. Donations can also be accepted here or at the shelter located at 3025 Park Avenue West, Ontario, Ohio 44906.
The reward is now up to $2,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the culprit responsible for injuring the kitten. Anyone with information is asked to contact 419.774.4795 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Get well soon Katy P. Everyone is rooting for you!
