‘He had pellets in his head, in his cheek, his neck, his jaw, his back… they were doing this on purpose’
Now his owner wonders who could be so cruel to a pet and she’s worried it could be someone in her neighbourhood.
“Excuse me, what? Pellets? What do you mean?” Crandell remembered saying. “And then they said, ‘Yeah, he’s been shot multiple times.’ ”
The vet told Crandell that Biggie was found more than 15 kilometres away from her home and taken to the SPCA before being transferred to have the pellets removed.
“He had pellets in his head, in his cheek, his neck, his jaw, his back,” Crandell said.
“The vet said the way the pellets were in his head, it’s like a pellet gun was held up to his head and his body … they were doing this on purpose.”
The SPCA is currently investigating this case.
As for Biggie, he appears to be making a full recovery and is “super-stoked” to be back home.
“He’s a little miracle cat,” Crandell said.
