  1. Air gun attack on cat leaves it with 'horrific' injuries

    Nev the cat with his healing wound

    A pet cat who was shot twice with an air gun was left in "considerable pain".

    The black and white cat called Nev was found collapsed on his owners’ patio in Henstridge in Somerset, with a wound on his leg.

    His owners took him to the vets where the pellet was removed.

    An x-ray showed the cat had been shot previously and the pellet was still embedded inside his leg.

    RSPCA Inspector Ken Snook said: “This poor cat has been cruelly shot with an air gun and would have been in a considerable amount of pain.

    "It was a shock for the owners to find Nev had been shot not once but twice."
