The deceased cat that was found in a car on Tuesday was dead one or two weeks before being discovered, animal control said.
Whether the cat had died in the car or was already dead then put in the car has yet to be determined. Authorities are still trying to locate the owner of the car.
The Honda was illegally parked at the Brookside Condos in Danbury, as the car was being towed witnesses saw a animal in a carrying case in the back of the car.
While the animal was first reported as a dog, but it was in fact a cat.
The investigation is still on going.
