Forrest The Cat Is Losing Leg After Someone Shot Him

On Saturday (June 24th), an injured stray cat that the Peterborough Humane Society has named Forrest was found on North Asphodel 5th Line and brought into the Humane Society.

Forrest had an injured paw, and upon examination from the Emergency Veterinary Hospital, it was discovered that he had been shot—and the bullet still remained lodged in Forrest’s front right leg.

He is being kept comfortable, but Forrest will have to have his leg amputated due to the damage done by the shot. The surgery is fairly complicated and very costly, the Humane Society says, and they are looking for the public's assistance. To support Forrest, visit peterboroughumanesociety.ca or contact Susan Dunkley, PHS's Manager of Development and Outreach, for info.

An investigation has started into the state that Forrest was found in. The Peterborough Humane Society is asking for the public's help: If anyone is aware of this incident or has information, please contact 310-SPCA(7722), Crimestoppers or PHS at 705.745.4722, ext. 204.

The Humane Society tells PTBOCanada they hope if Forrest recovers from the amputation, he will eventually be put up for adoption. Whoever adopts the 3-legged cat will need to show great love and care to Forrest in his forever home.
