Sound familiar? Last month, Lucky the cat was also shot with an arrow at close range and survived.
This time around, a family found the cat, nicknamed Jack Arrow, in their front yard. They lured Jack into their home with food and took him to their family vet.
The doctor said that the arrow was most likely in Jack’s neck anywhere from 1-2 weeks due to the fact that the wound was infested and the arrow had broken in half. The wound was 2 inches wide and 4 inches deep.
Jack was in the vet hospital for two weeks and then stayed at the family’s house for a week to recover. He is healing well and all he needs is some attention and affection. Jack’s friendly personality is still shining through amidst his ordeal and he still is welcoming towards people. What an amazing cat.
Update (6/23/07): Good news! Jack Arrow has been adopted. The woman that adopted Jack contacted us and told us that he’s fine and happy and sleeping on a down blanket. Tomorrow she will be taking him for his rabies shot and to have his doctors look at his neck and a general checkup. We’re all so happy to hear that Jack has found a loving home!
