  • [survived] My beloved cat was shot

    Gentlemen,

    right at this moment I'm somewhere between impotent fury and sheer dispair:
    My beloved, 1-year-old, gray tigered (mackerel pattern) Tabby-cat was shot - twice - one was a gaze-shot.

    About an hour ago I picked him up from hospital, were they have performed surgery. He now has a metal-plate and screws in is upper front leg. The doctors said the projectiles were from an air-soft gun.

    He appears to be as hungry, active and cuddly as ever. But boy, I almost can't stand looking at him in this state, it hurts me thinking that whoever did this is still out there, and I've got three other cats that possibly are endangered!

    My cat is still under morphine, and we were given the order to not let him out of the house for the next 4 weeks. This alone will be hard to accomplish, let alone the emotional stress this whole situation is giving me.


    Life is bitter, sometimes....

    As an owner of several cats and critter lover, I am sending some heal fast rubs to your family member. Have you filed a police report? Here in Khali-fornia, animal cruelty like that is a FELONY. Get the little bastages that did it.

      Thanks Ken!


      I am thinking about a police report. Though I will wait until tomorrow morning, and will get about 7-8 hours of sleep before doing so.

      Maybe then, the next morning, my boiling rage will made way to a more purposeful state of reasonability...

          Yes, I don't understand the world anymore. What has the world coming to?
          The strangest part of it all is that in my local small town, I know the majority of citizens by name. None of them I would suspect with animal cruelty!

            WHAT! I favor the Big Cat breeds more than the domestic and have had many more dogs than cats....but...people that abuse animals should be hung upside down and castrated...then beat with razor wire...then...well I've said to much already.......I really must learn to breath before I rant but stuff like this really makes me lose my spiritual peace of mind............. the only thing worse is child molesters and wife beaters.

            Sorry to hear this Danoh. I hope you catch them and they burn for it. Praying for you and your cat....and I guess myself now.

              Thanks Daniel!

              We're trying to get the rest of the town informed about this, the bigger the part of the neighbourhood, the better....
              I've had some well-ment hints about the circumstances/location and such, but without exactly knowing, who the mean mistreater is, my hands are bound to writing a bold letter to hang out at the notice board at our local grocery store.

                  Thanks Latz!

                  I guess my cat and I are both healing slowly!

                    Just a quick update

                    My cat is doing well so far, still on three legs (doesn't want to use the fourth leg just yet), and vocal!
                    I've informed all the neighbours to watch out and to be on the lookout for "weird" stuff, also I've filed a police-report, "charge against persons unknown". Keeping the cat inside the house is a pain!

                      good to hear that your cat is on the mend.

                    Hey Danoh,

                    Sorry to hear about the cat. Sounds like he/she is doing better though. Good thing you filed a police report. Even if they never find the person who shot your cat, at least there is record of this and the neighbors will be aware of the situation as well. No need in keeping it to yourself when others around you could fall to the same fate as you and your cat.

                    Hope all is well.
                    I think my work is done here.
