This is Joël's kitty, Rosco. Several days ago a house in Joël's neighborhood burned down. There is an investigation into the mysterious event as the bank was foreclosing on it as well. Everyone believes the owner of the house started the fire.
Unfortunately, Rosco was over at the house and got caught in the fire. He hasn't been shaved, his hair was singed close to his skin!
His legs are badly burned and are under wraps. Joël is supposed to soak them every day. I'm sure we all know cats - I can't imagine a cat voluntarily soaking his legs.
His nose and ears are burned too.
Rosco looks pretty upset and I don't blame him!
Poor Rosco. :(
