Stewie, a kitten who was rescued from an abusive environment made his first public appearance Tuesday.
Stewie's brother, Loki, was allegedly strangled and killed by Robert Heckmann. Both kittens were living with Heckmann at the time. He is accused of videoing the alleged abuse.
Stewie underwent extensive surgery for an esophagus malformation and has been in foster care since then. The Humane Society says he is doing very well and is just about ready to be adopted.
Stewie was a special guest at Camp Whiskers and Wags, a program designed to teach children respect and compassion for animals.
