Rescuers are asking for donations to help a cat that was severely burned a house fire.
Members of a local shelter rescued the cat named "Scooter" from a fire in Baraboo that left him without a home or a family on Sept. 3.
The cat suffered severe burns and needs to have his eye removed, which can cost thousands of dollars.
Countryside Animal Clinic is seeking donations to pay for the cat's surgery.
"I think Scooter demonstrated right away that he has the will and the spirit to live, and when you see that, you are willing to help him and get him fixed up," said Lynn Hasset, of the Feline, Canine Friends No Kill Shelter.
Scooter will be ready for adoption after his recovery.
To help cover his surgery costs, people can send donations to Countryside Animal Clinic on Madison's far East Side at:
