A Sad Occurence

My Little Black Cat has always had favourite places to be, most of all he enjoys snuggling in his little bed… 

I like to think of myself as a responsible pet owner.  My animals are well cared for, collared, micro-chipped and kept inside overnight, with them being brought in a few hours prior to Sunset and allowed out again once the sun has risen.  Being a cat owner, I also know that they have a tendency to wander – but Little Black Cat and his housemate are never far from home and will return on hearing their names called. 

Which makes the events of Tuesday, 23 March 2010, even more disturbing. 

My Little Black Cat was shot with a .22 calibre rifle.  The bullet entered through the bridge of his nose, ripped through his soft pallet, through the back of his tongue and along the oesophagus to lodge in the poor mite’s chest.  Thanks to Leisa Brown of Guyra District Veterinary Services and Martin Pearson of South Tamworth Animal Hospital, Little Black Cat survived.  A few of you may find the following images disturbing.

This is Little Black Cat’s first day home, four days after the shooting.

And looking a little better on his second day…

The incident has been reported to the Guyra Police and I would like to urge anyone who may have heard a rifle being fired on Tuesday, 23 March 2010, or have any information relating to the incident to contact the station.

But after all of this has happened to the little boy, it is nice to see that somethings don’t change…

    I really cannot understand the mindset of some people out there, and its frightening when they live in your community, isn't it. How is your beautiful little cat recovering now? I hope all is going well.

    P.S. Love your blog.
