It’s believed Heidi, a rescue cat, was shot in her skull and shoulder with a pellet gun close to her owner’s home in O’Rahilly’s Villas on January 8th.

Heidi underwent surgery today to remove the pellets, however, a vet was unable to remove the pellet in her jaw.

She is appealing for anyone with any information to come forward:
