Tyrique Hall will be sentenced next month.
He faces ten years in prison.
Sanchez is awaiting trial.
Police say Hall and Jose Sanchez doused a cat with lighter fluid and set the animal ablaze in the Olney section of Philadelphia on November 10th.
The cat had to undergo multiple surgeries during a monthlong stay at a veterinary hospital.
The cat was named Campbell and has been adopted by a Philadelphia firefighter.
