Philly teen confesses to duct-taping cat

A 19-year-old faces jail time for body-wrapping a cat in duct tape and tossing her over a North Philadelphia fence into a backyard where it lay for at least 12 hours. Humane agents arrested James Davis who confessed he wrapped the cat on impulse after it wandered into the yard of his home.

The female tabby cat, now affectionately known as Sticky, has been unwrapped and is in the care of the Pennsylvania SPCA where officials report people are pounding down the doors to adopt her [Note to potential adopters: there are plenty more needy, if not sticky, cats that would love a nice lap to curl up on at the PSPCA and other area shelters].

More on Sticky's saga from my colleague Peter Mucha here.
