PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A cat found wrapped in duct tape in a North Philadelphia yard has a new home.
Pennsylvania Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals spokeswoman Liz Williamson says the gray tabby, nicknamed "Sticky" by animal welfare workers, has been adopted. Williamson says the family who took the cat wishes to remain anonymous.
The cat was found Sept. 22, wrapped neck to tail in silver duct tape. She was mildly dehydrated and had to be sedated while the tape was cut off.
Nineteen-year-old James Davis faces charges of cruelty to animals and possession of an instrument of crime in the case.
Davis is in custody awaiting a psychological evaluation. He faces up to two years in prison and a minimum $1,000 fine if convicted.
