Rescue Cares For Cat Believed To Have Been Intentionally Set On Fire

Kingman, AZ – An Arizona rescue organization is caring for a cat who is believed to have been intentionally set on fire. The orange tabby, dubbed Armstrong, is in the care of Feral Cat Warriors in Kingman. On February 10, the agency posted images of Armstrong’s extensive burns, writing:

Armstrong, a kitty that we got after he was found caught/set on fire. It’s been a struggle to get him better, the wound is extremely itchy and he doesn’t seem to care about the pain that happens when he rips himself open. We have been to the vet multiple times and have gotten creative. We finally found a way to keep him off of it. He is a sweet boy.

Amazingly, despite the severe injuries, Armstrong has maintained a sweet demeanor. Nobody knows who hurt him, but if you have information, you are asked to contact Animal Control officers at 928-753-0753 and reference case number DR#22-047901.

Follow Armstrong’s recovery at this link to Feral Cat Warriors on Facebook.

If you are interested in donating, there is information about the various options at the agency’s website.

  1. You would just love to get a hold of the people who did this and give them the exact same treatment that this poor cat suffered. I read somewhere that there are “vigilante” groups that go after people who do this kind of thing to cats specifically and if so I sincerely hope they get these guys only because the legal ramifications if caught will result in a mere slap on the wrist and will do nothing to stop these assholes from doing this again when they get out. Sometimes going outside the law is the only way to permanently stop these sociopaths.

    • I definately agree with your comment W. Wright.

  2. I advocate for capital punishment for anyone wilfully harming any cat, as was law in ancient Egypt, a far more highly evolved society than any currently on earth. In lieu of this, maximum sentence for the devils that did this, and hopefully someone with nothing to lose will deal with them as they should be dealt with.
    As a burn survivor, I have great empathy for Armstrong and pray for his comfort, health, and complete recuperation ASAP.
    All of that said, I also advocate for keeping cats INDOORS ONLY. This would not have occurred if Armstrong was safe inside. Cat behaviorists like Jackson Galaxy stress that cats are happy and healthy and safe indoors with love and plenty of sources of stimuli. WAKE UP, people. KEEP YOUR CATS INSIDE.

    • Absolutely agree with keeping cats inside-our cats always have been ,but it doesn’t say if this cat was owned or was feral/ abandoned and those cats are ideal prey for the low life’s who do this kind of thing and yes, the law is woefully inadequate in punishing these people which forces people like myself to advocate for going outside the law to deal with these dirtbags. Not an ideal solution ,I agree but I don’t see capital punishment being enacted for animal cruelty anytime soon since it is considered low on the totem pole of crimes unlike in the enlightened times of the Egyptians.
