A mother cat and her litter of kittens are recovering after someone sealed them inside of a plastic container. Last weekend, the family was found unconscious, alongside a Waterbury, Connecticut, road, by a good Samaritan.
The Dan Cosgrove Animal Shelter writes:
Over the weekend we received a frantic phone call from one of our volunteers that someone had found a mom cat and 4 babies in a Tupperware bin sealed on the side of the road. Due to multiple people being involved and it being late at night , the exact location is not known.
What is known is that the mom and babies were not conscious. These nice people who stepped in helped to resuscitate the mom and babies and we took custody of them.
Describing the impact that being sealed in the container had on the cats:
At first it appeared that mom was blind due to a lack of oxygen. As you can imagine, everyone looked terrible. But as of today, mom is able able to see and is doing extraordinarily well. One baby did not make it, but mommy cat has 3 sons that are all gaining weight and are active .
The cats, dubbed Stevie Nicks, Van Halen, Aerosmith and Metallica, are now recuperating and a reward is offered for information leading to the identification and prosecution of their abuser.
PETA has announced the offering of a $5,000 reward in the cruelty case.
