Vermont volunteers rescue cat shot in face

Continue reading below

Vermont volunteers at the Felines & Friends Foundation said they rescued a cat that had been shot in the face. The Caledonian Record reported that X-rays showed that the cat had been shot point blank and that the bullet and shrapnel were in his head close to his spine. Staff at The Animal Doctor in Newport Center, where the cat was taken, call him Salem. Connie Knaggs, a worker at The Animal Doctor, said Salem ‘‘must have a strong will to live’’ to have survived his injuries. Thanks to the surgery at the clinic, Salem can chew his food and is on the mend. When he is medically cleared, a new home will be sought for him.
