Tipp City, OH – A cat intentionally set on fire after being doused in accelerant continues to improve, and things “look hopeful” for his recovery. Our Farm Sanctuary shared the promising update about Fotis on Wednesday:
For those of you who don’t know, he’s the cat who was deliberately doused in accelerant and set on fire almost exactly a month ago.
Tonight’s update from his vet at Care Center in Dayton: He continues to do well and is even eating and drinking some on his own. He seems to be in good spirits and the majority of his wounds are coming along nicely, aside from a couple of questionable areas on both rear legs.
According to a police report, someone had “casually flicked” a cigarette on Fotis after he was covered in accelerant – the resulting burns covered most of his body and required him to be hospitalized.
There are no guarantees for Fotis’ complete recovery, but right now, things look hopeful. Veterinary staff is seeing glimpses of the cat’s true, “affectionate and resilient” personality. Our Farm Sanctuary said that he “seems to hold nothing against us despite the bewildering act of violence that brought Fotis to us in the first place.”
