Glad she's recovering. My first question was "where"... Costa Rica. Next, of course, after "will she live?" is "for what purpose was she attacked?'

Noted "The family had apparently beaten and caged the animal, a threatened species, after finding her inside their henhouse"

Don't ask me what I hope happens to that family; it's not pretty.

I can't say she's lucky, but she's young and she's a cat. In the profession we have a saying, *Put two pieces of cat in the same room and they'll heal.*

Poor cat, I hope she makes a full recovery. And, I wish bad karma to the idiots who beat her.

I hope she recovers and the person who did this has the same done to him. What a worthless human.

Glad she is recovering and these people who are helping this cat recover are amazing. Just remember Karma is a real bitch.

For whoever did this to her, may he/she/they receive the same back!

What a prize example to their children these specimens are. What is wrong with humanity that we can do such things. I would tar and feather these creatures.
