On a depressing note, someone in the neighborhood shot my cat with a powerful .22 pellet three weeks ago; it pretty much ripped through her entire body before stopping at her hip. The emergency animal hospital was able to save her after couple surgeries, however she did end up losing a kidney. She has already made a quick and full recovery, and is back to being a cool cat. It's pretty much impossible to find out who did it, probably some stupid kid with an air-pump rifle. Filed a report, handed out flyers, and talked to most of the neighbors, hope it makes a difference.
