RSPCA appeals to public for information on severely burned kitten

By Canfan - 24 August 2015 2

RSPCA ACT Inspectors are asking the public for help on another horrific case involving a severely burned kitten.

At approximately 6:04pm on Thursday night someone left a severely burned kitten outside a door at the RSPCA ACT shelter. The kitten was left in a red milk crate which had a pillow in it. A towel was on the top of the crate. CCTV footage show a female and male carrying the crate and driving away in a sedan, possibly white.

The kitten is approximately 6-9 months old, and is not desexed. She is a white Domestic short hair feline and was wearing a blue flea collar.

RSPCA ACT Senior Inspector Catherine Croatto is asking the public to help provide information on this horrible case: “The kitten has burns covering 20-30% of its body. We hope that someone from the public will be able and willing to provide us with information that will lead us to the owner. All information will be treated in a confidential manner.”

Chief Executive Tammy Ven Dange echoed this plea, “Unfortunately, we couldn’t bring this story to the public any faster as the kitten escaped the milk crate when she first arrived. Fortunately we were able to eventually catch her, and she is currently in stable condition under the care of our vet staff.”

RSPCA ACT encourages members of the public to come forward with any information relating to this incident. Please call RSPCA ACT Inspectors on 0407 078 221.

So, my thoughts would be that these two people found the kitten and took it to the only place they knew wouldn’t charge them for the vet bills. Why set a cat alight and then take it somewhere where it will get care? And even go so far as to give it a pillow. A callous individual would leave it to suffer.
I hope this is the case with these two individuals. If it is because they have treated the animal badly then I will eat my hat.

There is a certain reek of mere boganity rather than callousness, whereby someone gets a free kitten for their partner/themselves because kittens are fluffy, kitten gets too close to fire/heater/kitchen stove/whatever heat source is going during the recent cold snap, and suddenly they realise the kitten is going to cost them money and they dump it in someone else’s lap. I’m sure Rioters could come up with a number of scenarios.
