The poor wee cat

http://www.belfasttelegraph.co.uk/news/northern-ireland/pet-cat-burned-in-antrim-bonfire-on-the-mend-but-could-lose-tips-of-ears-34881661.html

The night of the eleventh, all around NI, bonfires are set. Each year they are lit to commemorate the safe paths taken by the Williamite ships. Even though this is the historical context, it seems as though each year that thought becomes more and more lost, and the pyres grow in size. This year, a cat allegedly climbed onto a structure where many observers shouted to wait and save it while others shouted racial slurs about the burning of the cat. Others allege that those setting the fire put the cat on the blaze.

Now, the cat is going through recovery from the burns and may lose the tips of its ears and has no whiskers.
