Angel is proving some cats have nine lives, thanks largely to Sheltering Hands.
The tuxedo cat, seen roaming the neighborhood in Dunnellon Heights with an arrow through its side, was caught last Friday and transported to the University of Florida Animal Hospital by volunteers with Sheltering Hands Inc., a nonprofit organization dedicated to animal rescues.
Angel was in surgery for two hours Saturday, said resident Evelyn Pelton. She said the feline had to have part of its lung removed and that part of its diaphragm was injured when it was struck with the arrow.
