BRISTOL, CT (WFSB) -

A cat was found with a “severe burn” in Bristol this past week, but is recovering from these injuries, thanks to a pet rescue in Connecticut. 

The cat named “Lucky” was rescued by a group of people last week.

The animal was treated at the Newtown Veterinary Specialists and had a successful surgery this past week.

The cat was also cared for by the team at the Whiskers Pet Rescue located in Southbury.

"He's starting to move around a little bit and loves to cuddle up with her like a burrito and purrs constantly," said Caroline Abate, director of Whiskers Pet Rescue.

She said police told her Lucky was burned by a car muffler, but she said she feels the injuries are more extensive. She said right now she wants to focus on helping Lucky get rescued.

Lucky left the pet rescue on Sunday and was put with a foster mother. The cat was “eating well,” according to a GoFundMe account.

According to the GoFundMe page, the Whiskers Pet Rescue paid more than $5,500 for the animal and that price did not include care expenses.
