LODI, OH (WOIO) - An 18-year-old man is accused of putting a cat into a hot oven.

The cat named "Tigger" survived but was severely burned.

Lodi Police say on Oct. 30, the cat's owner, Chuck Garnett, left the cat with his friend Stephanie Atkinson because he was in the process of moving to a new home.

Stephanie had to leave the apartment for a short while and her 18-year-old son, Randy, put the cat into the oven.

Animal cruelty charges are pending against the teen.

Besides the burned paws, Tigger also suffered internal damage.

The cat is slowly recovering, with medications from a local veterinarian at the Litchfield Vet Clinic.

Chuck has to put a salve or cream on the burned paws, and has to give the Tigger daily doses of medicine orally.
