Just wondering here...couldn't the police get information from the cell phone? As said in the story, I will have to watch my two cats, to make sure that they are not in 'CAT-Hoots' with the kitty in this story. ;-)
Thanks, Cher for this investigative story.

Wrap all the inmates in duct tape. See how long it takes to find out who is the guilty party

OMG stories like this are coming up everywhere, so it can be none other than option C) the metal fences around the prison are being adapted into a large-array radio telescope to communicate with cats elsewhere in the cosmos. Nothing less than a massive plan of kitty takeover. Alll hail great kitty.

I heard about this kitty crook. With rehabilitation, I'm sure he can be released back into society.

that is no excuse to treat the kitty in the manner that they are doing. they are being cruel.

How dare they use the kitty in this matter. They need to charge those that did this and make them pay for this cats room, board and medical expenses for the rest of it's life. It was unwilling to participate in this act.

This isn't funny or amusing. This happened in south america, which is not known as a safe haven for animals, and I worry about what happened to the cat.

by the way, is this a true story, or a hoax?

Poor sweet cat. I sure hope the duct tape can all be removed. Hopefully she can find kind loving people to adopt her. Thanks Cher.

Don't like the idea of things taped to the cat. Ouch to remove. Hope kitty is OK.
