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

Get well soon Katy P. Everyone is rooting for you!

    O Please someone step up and turn this hunk of maggot puke in – anyone who would do this needs a .45 stuck up their ass and blow their insides out – sure, you punk – pick on a defenseless kitten because you are a useless sack of trash – I hope this bastard is found, someone KNOWS who did this – and this someone needs to grow a conscience – I hope little Katy P. recovers and gets the safe loving home she obviously did not have before. Please keep us updated on her recovery.

    Whoever ,committed this unimaginable torture against this precious little innocent puddy cat must be caught and fire crackers stuck up his or her filthy arse.
    Slice their vile and evil balls,dick or tits off or what ever you can get too. All animal torturers and abusers should be put to death and made to suffer in agony like their defenceless and helpless victims endured. Kill all these vile and evil animal torturing monsters.
    Hang in there little puddy and survive. My heart aches for this precious litle girl.
    An eye for an eye.
