Three-year-old Daisy Mae usually goes out on her nightly walks outside and enjoys the peaceful neighborhood. But on Thursday night, something went completely wrong.
The white longhair cat came back to her owner’s front door with bloody injuries. Daisy Mae had been shot during her romp outside.
Veterinarians found that she had a .22 caliber bullet lodged in her abdomen after puncturing her shoulder and lung. The doctors must stabilize Daisy Mae before they perform surgery on Monday. Her jaw and broken teeth must also be mended so she can eat.
Her owner said, “It looks like she was shot while she was curled up sleeping. It was bad enough when we thought at first she’d been hit by a car. Who would do this kind of thing? She’s just a shy little kitty; she didn’t deserve this. There’s a monster out there.”
The Humane Society of the United States is offering a $2,500 reward, and Pasado’s Safe Haven is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or people involved in the shooting of Daisy Mae.
