Cat brutally attacked by dogs is slowly recovering [Video]


  • Buddy the cat was viciously attacked by two dogs in late March.
  • A CCTV footage shows two kids letting loose their dogs on Buddy. 
  • The kids were charged, and the dogs were taken into custody.

“Buddy the Cat” is recovering after being savagely assaulted by two dogs in late March, according to the Pennsylvania SPCA.

“Buddy continues to do well and heal,” they added. 

Buddy was able to go into foster care with one of the building’s veterinarians thanks to the personnel at BluePearl Specialty and Emergency Pet Hospital.

Buddy’s fur started growing back by May, and he began hanging out with another cat named Teddy, according to the Pennsylvania SPCA.  

Buddy was found when two kids — a 17-year-old and a 12-year-old — let their dogs loose on him in Philadelphia’s Frankford neighborhood, according to the Pennsylvania SPCA.

The attack was captured on a home surveillance camera, which was published by NBC News station NBC10. In the video, two people walking their dogs seem to urge their pets to attack Buddy when they see him. After unleashing the dogs, the people stand by and watch the fight. The fight does not appear to stop until someone runs from their house and separates the animals.

The children were charged with “felony animal fighting, felony aggravated animal cruelty, and a conspiracy charge,” according to the Pennsylvania SPCA.

The organization also reported that the dogs involved in the attack had been “taken into custody” and are “on hold attached to the investigation.”

Since the incident, the Pennsylvania SPCA has started a fundraising to aid Buddy and other “victims of cruelty,” promising that the funds will pay for Buddy’s “medical treatment as well as the cost of bringing his attackers to justice.”

The Pennsylvania SPCA said in late March that the fund had raised “tens of thousands of dollars.”

“… The outpouring of support for Buddy the cat and the effort to bring the offenders to justice has been overwhelming,” Julie Klim, CEO of the Pennsylvania SPCA, said in a statement.

TeachKind, PETA’s humane education division, has also written a letter to School William Hite Jr., District of Philadelphia Superintendent, requesting that the district be provided with tools to prevent similar incidents from occurring.
