WASHINGTON, Utah (AP) - A feral cat has survived being shot through the face and body with an arrow in southern Utah.

Officials with the nonprofit organization One More Chance C.A.T.S. said the impaled feline was found Wednesday after going missing from a park for a few days.

A veterinarian who examined the cat tells The Spectrum an arrow had gone through the animal's head, passed through her esophagus and then came out of her shoulder blades.

The vet removed the arrow and said the cat, named Quiver, is expected to survive.

Washington City police spokesman Ed Kantor told KUTV there are no suspects, and it's unclear whether someone shot the cat intentionally or recklessly.
