Approximately June 27, on Madrona Avenue in Everett, someone shot my 14-year-old cat with a pellet gun, shattering his hind femur bone. Luckily, he was able to make his way into the house for help.
Thus far, he’s had two surgeries and intermittent stays at the vet as problems arise. His leg is held together with pins and bolts right now and he’s on lots of pain medicine. So far it’s been more than $1,000 to the vet and a week of my staying home from work to care for the cat. I am hopeful that he lives and will walk again someday.
To whoever did this, did you shoot my old orange cat in his own fenced yard? Did this old cat wander into your yard? Does he deserve to die for it? If he survives this and comes into your yard again, would you please call animal control and not shoot him again? Please don’t shoot any domestic animal. Chances are, it’s someone’s beloved pet.
One last thought: I’d like the “pleasure” of meeting you , whoever you are, so that I could do something just as nice for you. I’d like to present you with the vet bill and the bill for my time off of work. I’d also like to introduce you to my old cat, Pumkin, so you could see the pain and suffering you have caused him.
