The MSPCA is offering a $2,500 reward for information leading to the arrest of whoever bound a cat's legs, burned much of his fur off and shot him 11 times with a BB gun.
The society reports that whoever tortured and killed Gosha, found barely alive last Thursday near Hurley and Sciarappa streets, may have also attacked two other cats.
There are striking similarities between the Gosha case and what happened on March 4 to another pet cat from the same East Cambridge neighborhood, as well as a *third* cat named Buddy (pictured) who went missing in early May & returned on May 5 suffering from some kind of burn.
The second cat, whose owners have asked to remain anonymous, was let outside by her owner at approximately 11:30pm on Wednesday, March 3. She returned home at 8:30am the following morning having suffered multiple BB gunshot wounds across her left side...
Her owner filed a report with the Cambridge police department rushed the cat to Angell Animal Medical Center in Boston where veterinarians were able to remove some - but not all - of the BBs. The cat survived the ordeal and is now back home with her family.
