She was thrown into a trash bag and tossed away like garbage.
But now, everybody wants to adopt the cat who last week was found wrapped in duct tape, except for her head and paws.
Her highly publicized trauma, which included her being sedated while a medical team removed the tape, made national headlines and resulted in more than 100 people requesting to adopt the slightly furry feline. Some even claimed to be the kitty's owner.
But a North Philadelphia man, James Davis, apparently didn't want anything to do with Sticky, so named by nurses and doctors at the Pennsylvania Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. Davis, 19, of 22nd Street near Edgeley, was arrested Saturday night and charged with animal cruelty and possession of an instrument of crime (the duct tape).
