A two-year-old gray cat was found in the parking lot of a Baldwin Park animal care center in El Lay.
The cat wasn't just spotted strolling around without a collar or tags or anything.
This cat was struggling to breath, having had its paws duct taped together and its face taped up.
That's absolutely despicable!
An animal control officer found the cat while walking through a lower level of the parking garage at the County of Los Angeles Department of Animal Care and Control's Baldwin Park Animal Care Center.
"I can't imagine why someone would do this to this cat. Animal cruelty is heart breaking, intolerable, and usually a precursor to human violence."
The cat, dubbed Amigo, will live with foster volunteers to help get him back to 100% health.
Once he's fully recovered, he'll be up for adoption, ready to go to a forever home!
At least this story has a happy ending!
