Sappy Cat Blogging

ducttapecatThis is “Sticky” an abandonded grey tabby who was wrapped in duct tape and dumped in North Philadelphia this week.  Sometimes people really piss me off.  Evidently the vet was able to remove the duct tape, and she’s doing well, and up for adoption.  I hope she finds a better home that she originally had.  The story is HERE. Between Michael Vick and this, I’m beginning to take a firm dislike of Eastern Pennsylvania.


  1. This is so cruel. How can a human stoop this low? I am not the biggest fan of cats, but this is going to the extreme.

  2. You hold ’em down, William, and I’ll do the cutting this time. I have a really dull, rusty steak knife that would be perfect.

  3. On unforgivable actions:

    (Quote)Susan Atkins, a follower of cult leader Charles Manson whose remorseless witness stand confession to killing pregnant actress Sharon Tate in 1969 shocked the world, has died. She was 61 and had been suffering from brain cancer.(break)
    (Quote)Atkins married twice while in prison. Her first husband, Donald Lee Laisure, purported to be an eccentric Texas millionaire. They quickly divorced. Whitehouse, her second husband, is a Harvard Law School graduate and had recently served as one of her attorneys.

    Abusers of animals, killers of pregnant women, and those who marry them. How low can human behavior get?

    • Not that I approve, but Ms. Atkins did ultimately take responsibility for her actions, expressed remorse for them, and apologized to the Tate family. I agree, this is not bloody much in the way of making amends. I will point out it is more than the Lockerbie bomber did.

      How we treat people and animals that can do us no good defines our character.

  4. Cranky and William,

    I don’t have any rusty knives and any other implements would be too quick and merciful. So I will help with the holding down part.

  5. I LIVE in Eastern PA, and I am getting rather disgusted with the place!
    (It is past time to accelerate the job hunt for something in a much saner portion of the country.)

  6. Geez, people never fail to amaze me with how cruel they can be. I’m glad that she’s going to be adopted. I hope they find that jerk who did that to her.

  7. Hey. There are SOME parts of Eastern PA you still like, right?

  8. Cruel and unusual is not the word for it… I’d do the same to the asshat that did it and let them see how THEY like it…

  9. I’m with Old NFO, as much duck tape and time as it took. We’ll need the “hold them down” volunteers too. Thank you. I hope the kitty gets a good home.

  10. From News:
    James Davis, 19, admitted to taping up the cat from neck to tail after he spotted it in his yard Sept 21, police said.

    He was arrested on Saturday on animal cruelty charges, said a spokesman for the Pennsylvania Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.

    Sadly, looks like jail time is small, and fine max is $1,000. Still, glad he was caught.

  11. We just adopted a puppy from a city dog pound in Texas. She was pretty damaged. I thought my vet was going to cry. But the doggie is thriving with good food, good meds, a safe home, new doggie and kitty friends. She has a terrible eye injury but we think that we are going to get it cleared and she will be able to see. Thank God she is heartworm negative. She is just as sweet and loving as she can be. I am so happy she is ours and she is going to be fine. She seems so happy for someone who was so injured. No telling how long she was on the streets and what she might have had to eat. But she is ours now.
