Brave Cat Who Survived Being Set on Fire Deserves Justice

Target: Andrew M. Gregson, District Attorney for Randolph County, North Carolina

Goal: Capture and punish the person who poured an accelerant on a cat and set her on fire.

A cat endured terrible agony when she was intentionally set on fire. She is the second local cat to have been tortured in this way, and many fear she may not be the last. Demand justice for this innocent animal.

“I couldn’t fathom how she was still walking. And as badly as she was burned, she still tried to love on me and still was purring,” stated Amy Johnson, an Asheboro resident. She rescued the cat, dubbed Cinderella, from a patch of bushes and immediately sought out veterinary care when she discovered the extensive injuries. A thorough exam showed torched hair, peeling skin, and a hole on the poor animal’s side that went straight through her body. Investigators believe that the perpetrator poured a flammable substance on Cinderella before setting her on fire.

Cinderella is recovering at a foster home and she is expected to survive. Randolph County authorities are investigating, but they have no suspects yet. Sign below to demand that the person responsible be prosecuted and punished.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear District Attorney Gregson,

Someone is setting cats on fire in Randolph county. Two felines were burned on or around the same day, indicating that this is a repeat offender. I demand justice for these innocent animals.

Cinderella lives every day in discomfort after she was doused in an accelerant and set on fire. The approximately 2-year-old cat suffered scorched hair, peeling skin, and a hole that went straight through the side of her body. Even so, she continued to wander the streets of Asheboro in an attempt to ease her endless pain. Thankfully, Cinderella has received treatment and she is expected to survive. However, at least one other local cat suffered similar horrific burns and had to be euthanized.

The person responsible for this cruelty is dangerous and they must be punished before any more innocent animals suffer. I demand that you prosecute them and seek the maximum penalty possible.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. DON’T LET PETS OUTSIDE ESPECIALLY UNSUPERVISED. PETS BELONG INDOORS WHERE THEY CAN BE PROTECTED.

  2. Bette you are 1000000000000000% right. Oh and the POS that is doing this needs to get the death penalty, by fire.

    • Vince so true, none of my 5 cats go out, people say i am cruel keeping them in, but when there are main roads just outside my front door and evil scum humans wanting to harm animals in any way,i say they are better off indoors, anyway they seem happy enough, in a perfect world of course i would let them out if i had a big garden area enclosed in, but sadly the only way to protect them is keeping them in, you are right the scum who did this to this poor cat should die by fire!!

    Why doesn’t the USA punish animal cruelty severely? It will never stop until these monsters know they will be punished. Animals have no voice and humans have the responsibility to speak for them. We are failing them. Animals would NEVER hurt humans the way humans hurt them. Who ever did this to this precious cat is a monster, a barbarian, a heathen and his face should be all over the local TV so that everyone can see the creep he is! And he should be fined and jailed !

      Dear District Attorney Gregson,
      Please listen to Vergie Jurica and “enact laws that will severely punish all animal abusers”! – don’t let those criminals get away with murder.
      Thank you!

    • I have been saying this for a long time. Coward politicians who think a possession of coke is more of a threat to society than these predators. That’s why someone needs to find them and hurt them so badly they never forget.

    What ass….es – how could they do something like this to a poor little cat – set them on fire

  5. I think the same thing should be done to this soulless heartless asshole who did this.

    I agree that animals should not be out roaming. We enclosed our side porch to make a place where our cats can enjoy the outdoors in safety. Because evil walks our streets.

    Cinderella sounds like she might be a part of a cat colony. Even community cats should not be targets of psychotic animal abusers. I had experience investigating animal abuse years ago – I didn’t last long. The one thing I noticed in that time was how cat abuse – and it was mostly cats we saw tortured and killed – was not taken as seriously as dog abuse. And that, I.M.H.O, is just WRONG. NO animal should be abused. Anyone hurting any animal is a sick and twisted CRIMINAL.

    The authorities need to get in gear and find whoever is doing this. Because it’s not their first time, and they are not going to stop. And more innocent cats are going to die in horrible agony. And that is 100% unacceptable.

    PLEASE share this petition. More comments and signatures are needed to help cats get justice. If you’re an Animal Lover – you fight for ALL animals.

    This kind of crime also means that the person is a sociopath as cruelty to animals is a predictor of future violent crime. Please pursue this and see that they are brought to justice. There is no point having cruelty laws if we don’t use them.

    Whoever did this needs to be doused in gasoline and set on fire–that’s the only justice that needs to be served in this case–anything less would be considered a slap on the wrist!

  13. Deborah Boychuk says:

    Dear lawmakers and law enforcement…it is most likely your FAULT that we have sociopaths walking our streets and brutally murdering humans. These people who show no emotions other than anger and rage start out EARLY in life torturing and killing ANIMALS. They do this over and over again until they no longer get a thrill from harming animals and so they move on to babies, children and then adults. It will keep happening UNTIL there is PROPER punishment for the crime. Murder is murder. Start taking it seriously.

  20. Pamela J. Hengst says:

    How about a public BURNING of the trashy guilty abuser?If abusers would get the same treatment as the crime he/she committed then the cowards would not be so quick to abuse!! Animal abusers are cowards and we need them off our planet! I am glad little Cinderella was rescued and she deserves only love the rest of her life.
