In regards to the poor cat shot with an arrow - how sad that someone would shoot an innocent animal at close-range with a crossbow. That is just disgusting, I hope they find whoever did it because they clearly need some kind of psychological help.

That being said, it's amazing and fortunate for the family that 'Dave' survived.

Having come outside many a day to see neighbor's cats on or under my car, I can sympathize with the guy who did it... but the thing is pretty darn cute.

Sympathize?

Riding by a cat and shooting it with a crossbow doesn't sound very accidental to me. Why are you or someone in your car driving around with a crossbow in the first place?

Or are you saying that because cats are on or around your car that its acceptable to harm them? I sincerely hope not.

Well they are trespassing and although I would never take action, the thought has crossed my mind!
