A family in Omaha, Nebraska, was forced to say  good-bye to their cat after someone shot an arrow through the feline’s body. According to KETV 7 News, the cat, named “Pocket,” entered his family’s garage on Sunday with the arrow impaled through his body.

Pocket’s owner, Jennie Barney, told News 7 that she could hear her cat crying in pain and acknowledged her belief that her pet was going to die, “I started bawling instantly because I didn’t think he was gonna make it, I knew he was gonna die.”

Though Pocket was taken to a veterinarian, his injuries were so severe that even if he underwent expensive surgery, he was only given a 50 percent chance of survival. Given the slim odds, and the staggering surgical expense, Pocket’s family made the difficult decision to end their pet’s suffering.

Now, the Nebraska Humane Society is hoping to find out who is responsible for the cruel criminal act. Anyone with information is asked to reach out to investigators at 402-444-7800.

    The vile monster who did this needs to be shot with his own arrows in every single part of his body and left to die slowly……

    Is this another “hunting” incident or is that POS Veterinarian from Texas on the loose? Prayers for “Pocket’s” family, I know how much this must break their hearts. Here’s hoping the POS that did this is found and they get some sort of justice for their kitty.
