The Pennsylvania Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (PA SPCA) continues to investigate the extremely cruel death of a family's cat found on the 1900 block of E. Washington Lane on Tuesday morning reports myfoxphilly.com.

The owner of the cat, Brandi Mills, stated her cat was extremely friendly, and there was no reason for anyone to do such a heinous act. Mills stated:

"He was really friendly. He would go to anybody. People could pick him up and he wouldn't fight. He would let you pet him as long as you wanted."

A neighbor of Mills admitted to George Bengal, PSPCA Director of Law Enforcement to tying the cat by its neck to the fence, but didn't mean anything to happen to the cat. Not identified by name, the man was issued a $750 ticket for animal cruelty.

The neighbor told investigators the cat just roamed the area, but didn't know the reason why he tied the cat to the fence. He stated he didn't mean any harm to come to the cat and apologized.

After having been tied up, the cat must have jumped onto the fence to try and escape and strangled.

The neighbor has not been arrested pending further investigation.

Please do not allow your cats to roam outdoors.
