WEST VIRGINIA – It all started as a horrific case of animal cruelty in Fayetteville, West Virginia, but ended with a miracle when a Good Samaritan saved the day – and a cat’s life.
After the cat’s owner, whose name is Dean Workman, noticed his that he pet cat named Fluff had gone missing, neighbour Mike Price came to the rescue.
“The lady up the street called and said, ‘Mike! You need to get up here. The neighbour’s cat has been shot,’” Price stated to news channel WVNS-TV.
Price found Fluff lying in the neighbour’s bushes with an arrow lodged between right his eyes and out the back of its neck.
Remarkably, the cat was still very much alive!
The cat was immediately rushed to a veterinarian who removed the arrow. It was believed to have been in the cat for more than 24 hours.
“It was a miracle that the cat had lived as long as it lived,” Workman declared.
Fluff is now back at home and fighting off an infection.
The Fayette County Sheriff’s Office currently has an 18-year-old suspect under investigation and warrant has been issued for his arrest.
The young man’s name has not yet been released.
