Cat shot with arrow found, taken to Wacol

UPDATE:

THE search for a ginger cat shot with an arrow has ended. 

RSPCA officers found the cat in a storm drain at Calamvale after it was spotted by a member of the public. 

Firefighters helped coax the injured cat out of the drain and it has been taken to the animal hospital at Wacol. 

RSPCA spokesperson Michael Beatty said the arrow was successfully removed by vets and the cat appears to be recovering. 

"Luckily the arrow appears to have missed vital organs and he was eating ravenously this morning," Mr Beatty said. 

"We'd still like anyone who has any information in regard to the attack to come forward."

The arrow was successfully removed by vets and the cat appears to be recovering.
