A kitten found in District Heights, Maryland, is recovering at Alley Cat Rescue, after he was discovered in a distressing state. Someone had clipped the eight-month-old stray’s ears and bound his toes and tail with rubber bands. He was brought to Prince George’s County Shelter but due to the extensive treatment necessary, Alley Cat Rescue stepped in.

His rescuers named him Hardy, which means “courageous and able to overcome difficult circumstances.” This poor kitten must have endured weeks of cruelty – and in spite of that, he remains unbelievably affectionate and trusting of humans …

The kitten’s ears were so torn and injured, they had to be amputated. Since the blood flow in his paws was cut off by the rubber bands, some of his toes had to be amputated as well.

Hardy will require continued treatment and monitoring throughout his recovery process, which will hopefully be as smooth as possible.

 

 

“This poor little guy has gone through so much trauma,” Amy Pate, Hardy’s foster mom, told Fox 5. “Just to be so social and trusting, he’s so resilient.” Although so young, the kitten has already endured something that should never happen to any living being at the hands of a human. Now, his life is finally changing and hopefully he will soon be able to learn everything there is to know about being a pampered and well-loved cat.

Investigators are hoping to find the person responsible for the shocking cruelty case. Anyone with any information about the case is asked to call Prince George’s County Animal Services at 301-780-7241. Alley Cat Rescue is offering a $2,500 reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction in the case.
