SANDY, OR (KPTV) -
Someone shot Pumpkin the pet cat with a hunting arrow, and now one group is coming forward with a reward to try and catch whoever did it.
Pumpkin showed up at his Sandy home Sunday with an arrow pierced through his left shoulder area.
"I was just trying to avoid telling my 6-year-old daughter her cat isn't coming home," said the cat's owner, Katrina Newbury. "Then about 12:30 I hear this noise coming through the cat door and you could just hear the arrow bouncing off everything in the house."
The family said they don't know for sure if someone was trying to hurt their cat, but it's also concerning to know someone was firing arrows in a residential neighborhood full of kids.
Fortunately, the arrow missed Pumpkin's major organs and the cat should make a full recovery. For now, Pumpkin is walking with a limp after surgery and has to return to the veterinarian's office on Friday.
The family said the vet bills have already topped $500.
Sandy police are posting flyers in the area in hopes of generating leads on a suspect in this case. So far, they don't have any details about potential suspects.
In Defense of Animals, an international animal protection organization with a regional office in Portland, has offered a $2,500 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person responsible.
If you know anything about this case, call the police tipline at 503-489-2195.
You can also contribute to the reward fund by calling 415-448-0048, ext. 218.
