Fund Raising Money for Elliot the Cat
Elliot the Cat has become a little celebrity in Connecticut this week. Not because he’s grumpy or adorable like other celebrity cats. He’s getting attention after a Connecticut Mayor found him laying on a porch with an arrow shot through him!
Elliot was supposedly used as target practice by some murderous asshole and was shot with a 15-inch arrow. Norwich Mayor Peter Nystrom found Elliot laying on a porch Monday afternoon while he was out campaigning for re-election. He immediately called the police and animal control brought Elliot to a veterinary ER in town.
The veterinarians at All Friends Animal Hospital say the arrow narrowly missed the jugular, the lungs and heart and was probably stuck in Elliot for about two days. Somehow they were able to remove the arrow and Elliot is up walking around and went back home happy.
The nice people who wouldn’t go around shooting cats are raising money to pay for Elliot’s medical bills. They’re hoping to raise $800. So far they have $200. You can donate here. Any additional money donated will go to other animals.
