A veterinarian who examined the cat tells The Spectrum an arrow had gone through the animal's head, passed through its esophagus and then came out of its shoulder blades.

The vet removed the arrow and says the cat, named Quiver, is expected to survive.

Washington City police spokesman Ed Kantor tells KUTV there are no suspects, and it's unclear whether someone shot the cat intentionally or recklessly.
