The Windsor Humane Society is sending out a plea for information after a cat was shot with an arrow.

They say Humane Society staff were shocked by what they saw on December 7th, when a caring person arrived at the shelter with a cat in their arms. The cat was found on Gesto Road in Essex and had been shot with an archery arrow. The arrow was still embedded in the cat’s back and from the condition of the wounds it appeared that it had been there for a few days.

There were also wounds that indicated she had been shot by a second arrow.

The Windsor/Essex County Humane Society’s medical team were able to quickly determine that no major organs were impacted and they safely removed the arrow. After weeks of treatment and time spent in a caring foster home the cat, now named Fortune, has recovered from her wounds and is looking for a forever home.

There are currently no leads regarding who may have shot Fortune, although anyone with information is asked to call the Windsor/Essex County Humane Society investigations department at 519-966-5751, ext 16.
