PHILADELPHIA (CBS/AP) The Pennsylvania SPCA says a teenager has been charged in connection with a duct-taped cat, nicknamed "Sticky."
The tabby cat was found last Tuesday in the backyard of a home in North Philadelphia.
The SPCA (Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) says the cat had been wrapped in tape up to its head and had to be anesthetized and undergo a lengthy process to remove all the tape.
The cat, affectionately named "Sticky" by animal welfare workers, is doing fine.
Police were expected to release further details about the arrest on Monday.
The suspect could face up to 90 days in jail if found guilty and fined up to $750.
