Teddy called ‘awful and disgusting’ to the person who shot three times to his cat. He found the cat at the pool of blood crying but people tell her she has the ‘hardest cat in the country’
Luckily, the cat has survived after being shot three times. Two-year-old Teddy was left with a gaping bullet wound in his stomach following the most recent attack earlier this month.
In January, the same cat was also shot twice in her tail, but police have been unable to find the evil gunman who has been targeting him.
His owner Lauren Williams, 27, said: “He is remarkable to have survived.
“He can’t have many of his nine lives left.
“He’s a very tough cat. I don’t imagine there are much tougher than him.”
Mum-of-one Lauren, from Wordsley, West Midlands, said the most recent shooting almost claimed Teddy’s life.
“This time was the worst by far as the bullet went straight through his stomach,” she said.
“We wondered if he had been in a catfight then the x-ray showed three bullets in his stomach which are still there.
“He was so lucky it didn’t hit any organs or he would’ve been a goner.”
Teddy was taken to the PDSA pet hospital in Birmingham where he was placed on an IV drip and received treatment for his injuries. She is at home after a speedy recovery.
“It is frightening to think someone would do that to an animal like Teddy, it’s awful and cruel,” she said.
“He must’ve been shot nearby to make it back into the garden where I found him.
“He couldn’t move and was lying in a puddle of blood, there was a lot of blood.
“He was crying out to me, it was heartbreaking.
“It’s awful and disgusting that someone would do this to him and they need catching.”
Police have investigated the shootings but no shooter has been found yet.
After Lauren shared Teddy’s story on social media, web users were impressed by his toughness.
One wrote: “That is one hard-as-nails cat right there. Should rename him Purr-minor.
“No matter how many times he gets shot, he just comes back for more.”
Another added: “That is beyond cruel. But you’ve definitely got the hardest cat in the country right there.”
