BALDWIN PARK, CA – A cat, with duct tape wrapped around his mouth and nose was found in a box in the parking lot of an animal care center in California. The cat was near death gasping for air.

But luckily, he didn’t have to use one of his nine lives. An animal control officer found him and says he wouldn’t have lasted much longer.

If authorities find the person responsible, they say he or she could face animal cruelty charges and end up in jail.

As for the cat, he’s doing just fine. Officers named him Amigo and now Amigo is looking for a human amigo that will give him a loving home.
