Duct tape can be used for a lot of things -- patching holes, hanging posters -- you can even make a wallet or dress from it.

But one thing you should never use it for is making a suit for your cat.

This tan and black striped kitty was found sporting her second coat in a North Philadelphia yard Tuesday. A woman quickly called in the SPCA to rescue the feline after spotting it along the 2200 block of Edgley Street, officials said. They believed the cat was dumped there.

Vets were able to remove the tape without harming the cat. She is expected to be fine, according to officials.

The PSPCA is offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to a conviction in the case. They are asking anyone with information to call the animal cruelity hotline at 866.601.7722.
