Arrow: Abuser shoots cat through the back with BOW & ARROW!

 

UPDATE

Named by rescuers, Arrow the cat that was shot thru his middle by an arrow is recovering.

When he arrived at the Hospital he was in shock and having a hard time breathing. The staff and Vets jumped into action to determine the best treatment. Fluids were started, oxygen given, antibiotics and pain meds were administered. The arrow was removed and a chest tube placed.

Through out the weekend Arrow has continued to improve. A small set back this AM when he spiked a temp but Dr. Jacob remains optimistic and started another antibiotic. There has been a lot of great news coverage to get the word out and hopefully find out who did this. St. Clair County Sheriff's Dept. have been involved and took the arrow as evidence. Channel 5 News at 5:00 PM just reported that St. Clair County Sheriff Dept. has a person of interest for the animal cruelty to Arrow. Good News!


Just when you think we have seen it all. This poor innocent cat was SHOT WITH A BOW AND ARROW. I have tears running down my face as I write this. I am so angry… so upset. How can anyone do this? This animal abuser is a coward.

Friday morning, Horseshoe Lake Animal Hospital veterinarians went to work trying to save a cat that had been shot with a bow and arrow. Yes… that is an arrow straight through the cat's back.

Lisa McCormick is founder and director of a rescue organization known as Partners for Pets. Friday afternoon, she gave a reporter and update on a much-sedated male cat that veterinary staff had named Arrow.

"He's doing pretty good," said McCormick, whose donation-dependent organization is paying for the veterinary care. "He's comfortable and he's breathing a lot better than he was this morning."

McCormick said Arrow was found Friday morning on private property in unincorporated St. Clair County near Caseyville.

"So he arrived here very quickly," said McCormick. "And all the vets were taking a look at him to see what we could do. The arrow was tilted through his side, all the way through him. And so they ended up clipping both sides."

 

Eventually, the arrow was removed. Dr. Ryan Jacob is one of the veterinarians who treated Arrow.

"He's improving, but we're still working on trying to get his temperature up and trying to make sure the lungs continue to function appropriately and we don't get a lot of fluid or air accumulation in there," Jacob said.

St. Clair County Sheriff's Department officials confirm they are investigating. McCormick said her organization has also been in contact with the state's attorney. Partners for Pets is pushing for criminal charges in the case. I only hope we can catch this abuser before they do this again.

Now, we are focused on saving Arrow's life. I have created this animal saving shirt design along with Partners For Pets to help us raise the funds needed for Arrow's care! Please consider purchasing one to help! Thank you!
