Oregon Humane Society rescues dying cat found in storage locker

A cat found abandoned inside a storage container is recovering at the Oregon Humane Society after being rescued by an OHS humane investigator.

The adult male tabby was nearly dead when he was rescued by OHS Humane Investigator Austin Wallace.

The cat was entangled in what seemed to be a makeshift leash tied to a shopping cart. It was found inside a rented storage locker at the Money Saver Mini Storage on Molalla Avenue in Oregon City.
The humane society’s medical team estimate the animal had gone without food or water for between two and four weeks. He also had a variety of head wounds, probably from trying to escape from the tangled rope trapping him beneath the cart.

The owner is currently unknown, but he or she will likely be charged with first- and second-degree animal neglect if found. The humane society is searching for the person who rented the storage locker.

The storage facility manager found the cat this morning after hearing what sounded like an animal in distress and called the humane society. The OHS medical team is carefully monitoring the cat and hoping he will make a full recovery.
