People around the world have come together to help a terribly abused cat found in Sterling Heights, Mich.

"Snow" turned up at Angelika Baker's home on the night of April 4. Angelika told the Sterling Heights Sentry that she was shocked at what she saw. The white cat had been horribly abused, even tortured.

Vets believe Snow's paws were tied together with a rope and a chemical, such as acid, was poured on him. He had inches of dead rotting flesh hanging from his neck.

Laura Wilhelm-Bruzek of Paws for the Cause Feral Cat Rescue took Snow in and is caring for him. Sadly, Snow is FIV positive, and doctors advised putting him down, but Laura says she just couldn't do it.

Laura says she started a Facebook page for Snow and has received messages and contributions from as far away as Belgium, Sweden, Germany and Japan, as well as from throughout the United States.

Snow is making progress and he "absolutely loves people."

Police are working to find the people who abused Snow.
