The 4 1/2-month-old male cat survived a house fire a month ago but got 
separated from his owner in the process. The cat, which suffered singed fur and

taken to the SPCA Animal Village in Mangere on December 3. 
His fur effectively melted in the fire, leaving his usually pretty coat 
feeling like plastic. The cat also lost his whiskers.

treatment costs, which left the pet without a home. 
This youngster is comfortable with other animals and folk of all ages.
