A LITTLE LOWER THAN THE DEMONS

From NBC PHILADELPHIA:

A family was horrified when their beloved pet, a cat named “Peter,” returned to his Buena Vista Township home on Thursday with a 6-inch arrow sticking out of his head.

“I was so worried that he would lose his eye and with a hair’s breath, he could have been paralyzed,” said his owner Barbara Ciric.

But a veterinarian carefully removed the arrow and the family hopes the New Jersey State Police will be able to find fingerprints on it.

Peter is not paralyzed and although temporarily blind in the wounded eye, he’s expected to regain his vision within a week.

The cat is a companion to Ciric’s 11-year old son, Scott, who has cerebral palsy.

  1. You know I don’t generally think this way but, as far as I’m concerned, even hell is too good for the monster who did this.

    Excellent headline, MP.

  2. This cat looks entirely too close to my Gustav for comfort.

    It is your blog, friend, but I wish you’d put the images behind a link or something.

    This might trigger nightmares and depression for me. No bullshit. I often have mental images of wounded animals float through my head. I don’t need help from a friend’s blog.

    But this is also why I NEVER LET MY CAT OUT! People do terrible things to cats, esp. BLACK ONES!!

    So hello, people, you were stupid for letting him roam free, dumbasses! So in my mind, they are just as responsible for this arrow in the eye as the actual perp is. My Gus has never been harrassed by anyone – why? He doesn’t go any further than our screened porch! DUH!

  3. I think the stocks should be brought back for people who do this to animals. They should be in the stocks for a couple of hours and the general public should be allowed to throw whatever they like at them.

  4. My sister adopted a cat that had BB pellets in his head… he is blind in one eye and still has pellets in his head but he now is 16 years old.

    There is no punishment good enough…

  5. This time of year(Halloween season), nut cases are always going after black cats for some evil reason, no doubt. I try to entice my black cats to stay around the house during this time of year.

    The irony is they think in some warped, disgusting way that the badness is in the cats.

  7. So in my mind, they are just as responsible for this arrow in the eye as the actual perp is.

    I believe cats should be indoor cats (if for no other reason than what they do to wildlife).

    But I believe the above is a bit OTT, Tracie. There’s negligence (which even the best pet guardian may accidentally commit). Then there’s sadism. Not the same.

  8. I had a tuxedo cat that was napped, tortured (ligature marks around his neck and burns, probably from cigarettes on his body) but who got loose and made it back to me. It was around this time of year. My two sweet black cats, Boo and Doc, who are indoor-outdoor cats, will be spending Halloween week-end with Dr. Tim, their vet, just for that reason. Even though they never stray from their yard, you cannot tell what some sick nut will try to do. I agree that Hell is way too good for whomever would do such a thing.

  9. My four felines never go out unless I have them in their carriers. Kitties are very content to stay indoors. Mine love to watch the birds and squirrels through the windows.

    Keep them in the house!

  10. Oh no no no. Brought back bad memories of the sicko who stuck a hatpin into one of my cats…glad that this one (like mine) will make it out okay BUT what makes a person do such things is beyond my understanding. God help them.
