A Facebook post by the Saratoga County Animal Shelter updated the condition of 'Soldier' the cat who was found last week with apparent burns on his face.  Over the course of a few days at the shelter the cat's condition has rapidly improved!

The latest information from the SCAS is that he is rapidly recovering from the injuries he suffered and since being taken in, his condition has improved to the point where he no longer in need of pain meds! Pictures on their Facebook page show a marked improvement to his face and neck areas in photos taken of him snuggling next to a teddy bear.

According to the Times Union, last Thursday troopers found 'Soldier' the cat abandoned on Hollendale Lane in Clifton Park with obvious burn marks of some kind on his poor little face. The neutered male, according to the report,  was then brought to the Saratoga County Animal Shelter where he was treated for the burns.
