Cat shot in the head with arrow undergoes emergency surgery

West Virginia Headlines

ARLINGTON, Va. (The Washington Post) — An animal welfare group in Virginia has removed an arrow from the head of a cat that had been wounded in West Virginia.

The Washington Post reports that the Animal Welfare League of Arlington performed the surgery on Sunday.

The organization said the cat was doing well, but it could not guarantee its survival. Few details were available about the circumstances in which the cat was attacked.

But it apparently happened in Hardy County, West Virginia.

A woman had found the feline on her porch.

The orange tabby has been named Cupid because the group in Arlington learned about him and his injuries on Valentine’s Day.
