i'm not saying i'm a cat lover, i already said what i think should happen to the OP's cat "attacker" whomever they be. BUT i'm semi agreeing with AZ. cats are "useful" animals on a farm, not loving pets. do you know how cats were neutered in the "old days on a farm?" go find a boot.....without bringing them into a Vets office and sterile OR? Everyone know why there's usually FEW bulls on a cattle farm? sometimes the GT needs more farm / rural input than shooting enthusiasts / gun loving peeps.... Just IMO, no offense...

I grew up in as rural place as you can find, what kind of input are you talking about? I also grew up on a very large cattle operation, I think I understand animal ag as well as anyone, but I still don't get your point.

Some people treat some animals poorly? I think we all would stipulate to that.

Plz don't get me wrong. not saying to treat animals poorly what so ever. just saying what some peeps "think" is poor treatment is just "what has to been done" type of philosophy. when cows are castrated now, most, are treated way better than 100 yrs ago. do you agree?

My dogs, when i was living in upstate NY, were always outside animals, every day of the year. i now live in a warm state and my GF's dogs sleep in the same frikin bed and one is a 110 lbs fat slop snoring bull dog that becomes an immovable object. oh how our habits change, but my "belief" is they are still "animals"...

Regardless of philosophy, you never, ever go to someone else's property and shoot their animals.

No?

There's no way someone shot her 2 times. Sounds like she got bit, poked, or anything other than shot.

Honestly, I really doubt this.

a 22, would kill a 4 month old cat with that placement.

Most likely, something tried to get it, and the cat got away.

I don't know about you, but I like my car. Cats walking across the paint, is unacceptable.

Proving my point that cat owners are the most irresponsible of all. When I do trap an unidentified cat it goes to the shelter, and hopefully to a more responsible owner. Cats are a dime a dozen, the real owner will not pay the fees to get it out. And stink??? I can tell if you have a cat before you open your door. No way would I have an animal that I had to put out a tray for them to pee and **** in, then have to clean it out!

No teeth bruises on the other side. No spit either. Also no sharp piercings such as a talon. I've come up on fresh kills back there, and this just doesn't hook up.

The most common firearm around here is the shotgun. I've fired one so much I've had blisters.

The two holes are entirely consistent with a long range or deep brush BB shot.

Were the holes completely punctured? Did the vet xray to see if there is any shot inside the cat?

Nope. Why incur the debt? She's healing, and xrays are $100. Seems a little pointless.

Holes are through the skin and into the flesh.

Simple resolution. If she's a pet, keep her inside.

That depends. How, if one were to attempt it, would one castrate a cow? Now, a hundred years ago, in the future, ever?

To the OP, I'm sorry your cat was injured however it may have happened. I hope for a full recovery. I've had someone shoot my dog with a bb gun when I was a kid. The prick was very close to getting his ass beaten a with piece of hickory.

I don't wish harm upon anyone's pet. Even if they are cat people. I actually like cats except for the litter box stench. Most cat owners that I know get on my nerves though.

As far as cats roaming, my grandma has always had cats and they've always been outdoor animals. Things happen to small outdoor animals, especially in rural areas.

To those making light of cats walking on a car, pay almost two grand for a new convertible top on a classic car just to have your neighbor's tabby shred it. Or the paint scratches left from playing or jumping on and off the car. They should stay away from cars, even for their own protection. I've seen one climb up around a car's engine to keep warm on two occasions. They were caught in the fan belt when the car was started and their guts were squeezed out.

I currently have a neighbor that is under the strange delusion that his outdoor cats don't leave his yard. I have pictures of the remaining cat and where it's taken a crap to prove otherwise. My dog chased one of his cats through the woods on our property and caught up to it just after the trees end which is the property line. My dog is now registered as dangerous since he killed the nut job's cat on the cat's property. It could have been prevented if he had told us he had a cat. Since then, the dumbass shoots at everything he sees moving in the woods around his home and claims whatever it may be is trying to kill his cat. Even a lost puppy half the size of his cat and terrified of everything. He then called animal control and sent them to my house like it was my fault. The AC officer wasn't expecting me to pop out cell phone pics and say, "Yeah, I've seen it. Is this the vicious beast you're after?" I'm waiting for the large pair of hawks that frequent my back yard to make a fancy feast out of his furball.

I love cats, but every one I've had just kinda showed up.
I currently have two inside and six outside. They are all fixed and got their shots.
The outside kitties have a two and a half acre yard and don't wander far.

This thread has one victim pet owner, and one pet victumizer. How interesting.

Put your rollsroyce in a garage if you are so worried about the paint. O, and your poor flowers. Maybe you could claim some sort of mental disability under obamacare.

People that have no feeling for a creature, someone else may cherish, shows a dead heart. Dime a dozen. I am sorry I live in a world with heartless people like you.
