FORT MYERS, Fla. - Surveillance cameras watch as a woman tosses a 6-week old kitten into a veterinarian's office - then drives away.

The woman can be seen walking up to The Cat Hospital on College Parkway in Fort Myers on Wednesday.

Video shows her open the door, look inside and toss the kitten before turning around and driving off.

The kitten was found to have had a skin disease that would have killed it if left untreated.

That cat is recovering and expected to be ok, but authorities are searching for the woman - classifying her drop as animal abandonment.

If caught and convicted she faces a $500 fine.

If you know who the woman is you're asked to call Lee County Animal Control at (239) 533-9204
