Catching the East Cambridge Cat Killer

*TRIGGER WARNING: Animal Abuse* Last week, our quiet East Cambridge neighborhood was rocked by the shocking news that a cat, somebody’s pet, was found on Thursday morning (5/6) underneath a car, with its legs bound by duct tape, multiple BB gun shots to the face and body, and a large amount of fur missing.  A local neighbor heard the noises of a cat crying and called the police right away.  Unfortunately by the time animal control showed up and found the young adult male cat, he had passed away due to the injuries.

I was absolutely devastated walking out of my apartment on Saturday morning to see that the missing cat poster that had only been up for a few days, was now replaced by a notice from the police and MSPCA with the gruesome details of what happened.  We have been trolling the neighborhood looking for clues, only to find out that this is not the first time something like this has happened. 

The police have opened up an investigation and the MSPCA is offering a $2500 (since increased from the $1000 listed on the poster) reward for any information that will lead to a conviction.  I am afraid that this won't be enough to incentivize someone who may have information to come forward, and therefore am starting this Go Fund Me.  My hope is that if we can at least raise another $1000 (if not more), then there might be a higher chance of somebody reaching out with valuable information that could help the Cambridge Police catch this person.

This vile and heinous act has our entire community in utter disbelief and looking for any way at all possible to help this investigation lead to a conviction.  Please consider donating, even if just $5.  Any and every dollar will go straight to the MSPCA to increase the reward offered for information leading to a conviction.  If no conviction is made, the money will be put toward the MSPCA investigation committee to aid in future cases.

Thank you for reading this and thank you in advance for your help.  Even if it just means sharing this post,  anything to raise awareness would mean so much.

Yours truly,
A Cambridge Animal Lover
