Cat Rescued From Alleged Cat Killer’s Home is Going Up For Adoption


Stewie the cat is ready for adoption soon, but with Stewie, happiness seems to come at a great price. The adorable kitten was rescued from the home of 25-year-old Pueblo resident Robert Heckmann. Heckmann is accused of videotaping himself torturing and then killing Stewie’s brother, Loki the cat. Heckmann is facing animal cruelty charges and is scheduled to go on trial in June this year. The Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region in Colorado Springs have announced the cat will be available for adoption.

The precious cat Stewie, who underwent surgery for a condition that he was born with, has been recovering with a foster family and is now well – and ready – enough to go up for adoption.

The Humane Society will be opening the adoption application process for Stewie beginning at noon on Wednesday, April 2, 2014. Here are the adoption guidelines:
