PARMA -- Lucky the cat is living up to his name.
The 8-year-old, black and white feline survived being shot in the head at close range with a bow and arrow. On Saturday afternoon, 16-year-old Kristin Slovensky was on her porch, when Lucky staggered home, with the arrow sticking out of his neck.

"It was just sickening, I couldn't believe he was still alive," Kristin said.

Kristin and her boyfriend rushed Lucky to the Animal Emergency Clinic in Brook Park. Dr. Jeni Hren operated on the cat.

"In my twenty years of taking care of animals, I've never seen anything like this," Dr. Hren said. "This cat was shot at close range."

Lucky is back home, but not out of danger yet. The risk of infection is very high, and he could suffer kidney damage.

Donna Slovensky is shocked that someone would do this to a harmless cat.

"He's fixed, he's gentle, he loves to walk through the neighborhood, everybody on this street knows Lucky, and loves him."

Police are investigating

my friend in the next town let her cats out a few times after she moved from an apartment to a town house, and one came back with little round wounds on her. Some [insert expletive here] with an air gun thought it was fun to take potshot at passing cats. :frustrated:

her cats stay indoors now.

there are sickos out there :mad:

There sure are,i dont really get what it is about cats that people seem to like to hurt.But i aint takin nooooooooo chances w/ roxy.I feel bad sometimes when she is lookin out window,but she doesnt try to run out door or cry by the door to go out,overall i think with enough play,love and toys a cat can be pretty damn happy inside,mine is.
