Sticky, the duct-taped cat, has a new home
Sticky has a new home.
The cat that was duct-taped and dumped in a North Philly yard was adopted by a family Tuesday afternoon, according to Pennsylvania SPCA officials.
The family, which asked to remain anonymous, was selected out of nearly 100 animal lovers who had expressed interest in giving the gray cat a home.
PSPCA officers arrested James Davis Sunday for allegedly duct-taping the cat from its neck to its tail and dumping her in a North Philadelphia yard last week. He faces up to two years in prison on an animal cruelty charge.
The PSPCA received a tip identifying Davis as the culprit, then a few hours later got a call from Davis himself, admitting to the crime, NBC News in Philadelphia reported.
Davis reportedly lost both his father and a brother to murders in recent years.
Last week, the SPCA had offered a reward of $2,000 after the female cat was found wrapped in duct tape.
