(STMW) — When the staff at a Morton Grove animal shelter received Milo’s picture five weeks ago, they didn’t know if he would live or die. But they knew they had to act fast.
More than 40 percent of the gray and white house cat’s skin had been burned off and destroyed by the time an animal control facility in Jonesboro, Arkansas, took him in. They think someone poured boiling water on the cat, who was in terrible pain.
“When they sent over his pictures, we were absolutely horrified to see them,” said Christy Anderson, founder and executive director of Wright-Way Rescue. “They didn’t want to euthanize him, but they didn’t have the resources to properly care for him.”
