The kitten injured Monday in a fire at a Fridley home is "doing well," according to Natividad Seefeld, board president at Park Plaza Co-op manufactured-home park.
"The little boy kitten named Mittens is doing well and is so sweet," said Seefeld by email Thursday morning.
Seefeld said staff at Southview Animal Hospital in Inver Grove Heights have advised her that bandages on the kitten's paws will need to be changed regularly after he leaves the clinic.
Fridley and Anoka County officials said Wednesday the cause and origin of the fire at 1129 Onondaga Way NE remain under investigation.
An adult and two children escaped without being hurt. But Seefeld said the fire "has changed a family's life and has made things so hard for them. Thank goodness it was not winter and super cold out. The family is doing OK given what has happened."
One thing that is not OK: the family's TV is missing.
According to Lt. Mike Monsrud, one of the fire victims reported to Fridley police Wednesday that "someone took her TV from the burned trailer. The case is under investigation."
