Begovich is reluctant to speculate if the man seen abandoning the cat is the person responsible for neglecting the cat all this time, but his decision not to stick around or provide any information certainly raises red flags.
"Normally, when someone leaves an animal after hours, there’s usually more to the story. It’s typically not a Good Samaritan who found an animal on the side of the road," Begovich said. "We would really like to know the backstory. There could be other animals in this house, wherever this cat came from, who are in the same condition."
With any luck, the truth will come out — but at least this cat was now in good hands.
