This little cat was found with no tail or ears on a street in Queens

This cat may have used most of his nine lives, but he isn’t giving up yet.

A small, black cat was found on the streets of Queens this past weekend and the animal rescuers were horrified at the injuries on him. The cat was missing his tail, ears, and part of his two hind legs. While the wounds looked like they were healed, it looked like the cat may have been tortured.

 

“Animals will never cease to amaze me,” rescuer Mary Tschinkel told the Daily News, who reported on this over the weekend. “After all he has been through, he lets you hold him and he purrs. He’s a love.”

Tschinkel runs Friendly Ferals in Forest Hills, a non-profit organization that seeks to stop the overpopulation of animals in NYC. She was contacted by the ASPCA clinic on 83rd Street in Glendale after the cat was found.

She then had the cat checked out by a veterinarian and named him Bruce, after actor Bruce Willis, famous for his role in the “Die Hard” movie franchise.

Tschinkel’s hope is to find Bruce a quiet forever home without other pets or children.
