An orange tabby cat was found by Rochester Police the morning of June 1, 2014, abandoned at a baseball field in Rochester, Mass., according to It's All About the Animals, Inc.'s Facebook page. The cat, now named Dexter, was left in a carrier with two cans of cat food. The carrier was left at the Rochester baseball field on Dexter Lane.
The Rochester Police Department is also located on Dexter Lane, while It's All About the Animals, Inc. is located on Marion Road. Dexter Lane is off of Marion Road. The individual who left the cat at the baseball field had better options than leaving the cat to perish.
The cat is reported to be extremely friendly and very large, as stated by Pam Robinson's Facebook post, founder of It's All About the Animals, Inc. Willful abandonment is considered animal cruelty in Massachusetts, which is a felony. The charge carries a maximum of five years in prison and up to a $2,500 fine.
