Another burned cat found in Baltimore
Yesterday, the city’s office of Animal Control picked up a 12-week-old kitten who appeared to have been burned. He was found outside of a residence.
The kitten was taken to BARCS where he was evaluated by a shelter veterinarian. The kitten’s whiskers and eyebrows are singed off, and the tips of his ears are burned.
The cat also smelled of smoke, had brown discoloration throughout his coat and red spots on several areas of his body. He is receiving hydrotherapy, pain medication, antibiotics and burn cream.
The kitten, now named Jonah, was picked up in the 4000 block of Oswego Court.
BARCS asks that anyone with information about the cat contact Baltimore City Animal Control at 410-396-4688.
The kitten is being cared for at BARCS, and contributions to his care and that of other sick and injured animals can be made through BARCS Franky Fund.
