Cat Rescued After Being Stuffed In Bag


Sunny is lucky to be alive after someone put him in a duffel bag filled with clothes. The bag was left on the ground besides a dumpster outside an apartment complex.

The kitten was weak, but he had enough energy to cry and alert anyone that could hear him. A resident in the apartment complex heard the six-month-old kitten crying and saw the bag moving.

It is uncertain how long Sunny was outside in the afternoon sun.

The man took the black-and-white kitten to the Progressive Animal Welfare Society (PAWS) in Lynnwood, Washington. The kitten was suffering from heat stroke.

Sunny’s body temperature was 107 degrees. A cat’s normal temperature ranges from 100.5 to 102.5 degrees. Shelter workers wrapped him in cool blankets and gave him intravenous fluids. The kitten was also unable to stand up on his own and was unresponsive.

By the next day, Sunny had made a full recovery and was running around the PAWS facility.

The staff decided to name him Sunny because he needed a positive name after everything he had been through.

Animal Control is investigating the incident.

Sunny is now up for adoption and is ready for a loving home.

Kay Joubert, PAWS director of companion animal services, said: “He’s fabulous. He gets right into your arms and purrs. He’s really interactive in his cage, and he has lots of spunk and energy. I think he’d make someone an excellent companion, and it’s just so sad this happened to him.”

    What are the long term efects of heat stroke? I hope he is ok.

    It is just heartless to put a helpless cat trapped in a bag to die. What a hideous thing to do. And what a gorgeous cat! Sweet baby. I hope that karma does awful things to the person who was responsible for Sunny’s being discarded like that.

    I’m so glad He was found and thank goodness for the person who got Him some help.
    Here, We find dogs and cats put into the dumpsters. Alive. So if no one finds them, you can imagine what a horrible death they have.
    Sunny will find a wonderful home, i just know it.

    What is the point in doing harm to an innocent creature ? I have just about gone to the point in life where I find the worst “monsters” on the planet,……….is mankind.Can’t we just kill the bads ones off ? What is their reason to exist ? I would be happy to take a few worthless human beings out.It would be me doing my part to make a better world. Any one else fed up with “human ” behavior?

    What kind of idiot would torture a poor animal like that. They deserve to be tied up in a bag themselves and left to suffer.
