“Thankfully she is OK, she ate her wet food and woke up this morning seemingly fine,” the woman said.

She said there have been multiple animal cruelty incidents in Rutland, some of which include cats allegedly being beaten with bats. A few of her neighbors, she added, said their cats have gone missing.

Police said they partner with community organizations to handle these calls.
