Kitten is Found Burned, Smelling of Gasoline in Sacramento

Animal Control officers in Sacramento are looking to find the person or people responsible for horribly burning a kitten in south Sacramento. Mark Demsky reports.  The kitten is only 4 months old and there’s currently a $5,000 reward to anyone with information that could help the investigation into this horrible case of animal cruelty.

Initially the kitten was taken into a vet by a good Samaritan where it had to be bathed because the smell of fuel was so strong.  The vet determined that this was no accident and was an intentional act.   The event itself is said to have happened two weeks ago and the kitten is still in pretty difficult shape.  His ears are still badly burned and he currently has no whiskers.

The kitten was discovered by Hector Munoz behind a plant in his driveway.  He immediately took the cat to the vet.   The reward has been posted by the Human Society for the kitten now named Phoenix.   He’s had one surgery so far and will have several more.  The good news is that Phoenix will make it back.  If you have any information please contact the Humane Society ASAP.
