A cat that was previously restrained is currently on the road to recovery in Michigan!
When a severely infected and flea-ridden cat covered in duct tape was brought into Jane Alexander Krysinski’s veterinary hospital in Michigan, she feared that the cat would not survive. Despite the cat’s poor condition, Krysinski was surprised to see how well it responded to treatment. Grand Traverse County animal control officer Deb Zerafa discovered the cat near the veterinary hospital on Veterans Drive and had to spend an hour removing the tape. After cleaning the cat’s skin, administering antibiotics and fluids, and giving it the name Ronnie, veterinarians found that approximately 20% of its skin was infected. Additionally, Ronnie was suffering from a tumor in its ear, was underweight, anemic, and its organs were also affected. But with proper treatment, its organs are finally recovering.
Some pet owners resort to using duct tape on their animals to prevent them from scratching or biting, according to Krysinski. It is unclear whether Ronnie’s owner used the tape for this purpose or to intentionally harm him. The identity of the owner is also unknown. Krysinski finds it hard to believe that someone would intentionally hurt an animal. However, animal abuse is a serious issue that should be reported to authorities or animal welfare organizations. They can investigate and provide proper care for the animal, as well as take legal action against the offenders if required. Remember to share this information with your friends!
