Authorities are searching for three youths who were last seen running away after pouring kerosene on a cat in Alpena on Saturday.

The police and Huron Humane Society in Alpena are looking for two boys and one girl who were spotted quickly leaving the scene on Golf Course Road.

The community is offering a $1,500 reward to find the three people involved.

Officials believe the group was going to set the cat on fire.

The cat, named Hello Kitty, has burns on his body from the kerosene. The vet believes that he may have ingested some of the kerosene and is being treated for internal burns.
