I sincerely hope they find a loving home for this precious gift from God. I also hope they do everything they can to find out who shot at him. This will not be the last of the cruelty unless these criminals are brought to justice.

since this poor cat was shot again,again and again, i just have to think the sick person must live near her or right next to her house. the law enforcer and animal controller should talk those who live by to find out the truth. if he/she is not caught and punished, some other animal will be just another victim of human cruelty or sickness.

it worries me greatly there are people loose in our society who can do something like this. someone who would hunt an animal will do the same to people given time and opportunity ~

Although I can't access the article, I believe when the "perp" is caught, they receive the same treatment as they provided to the animal Kathleen AKA "The Kat"

Noticed that some comments are devoted to discussing what type of gun and bullets were used to shoot the cat.

NOT THE POINT OF THE ARTICLE! The point is that some maladjusted person hates animals and has no compunction about shooting them (animals are 'vermin' mentality!).

Our world is full of such ignorant people. It is amazing that this cat survived and I wish him a happy and life full of contentment. - He certainly deserves it!

Of course, the ideal solution would be to have an 'open season' on these
