New York cat suffers horrible trauma but is recovering weeks later
In this Aug. 22, 2013, photo by Waterville, N.Y. veterinarian James Gilchrist, a cat with a 70-centimetre arrow lodged in its body is examined at the Waterville Veterinary Clinic. The arrow entered the male cat’s right side between two ribs. Gilchrist performed two surgeries to repair the animal’s lacerated liver, stomach and spleen. Clinic staff nicknamed the cat Robin Hood.
On Wednesday, Sept. 4, Robin Hood is recovering. Police in the rural village of Waterville, 62 kilometres east of Syracuse, are still trying to determine who impaled the cat with an arrow last month.
