Cat survives crossbow bolt through the head

A four-year-old cat called Moo Moo has miraculously survived after a crossbow bolt was fired through its head. The cat, called Moo Moo, was described as “extraordinarily lucky” by a veterinary surgeon.

The bolt went in above its left eye and out behind the ear but did not touch its brain.

Owner Donna Ferrari says she was shocked when she saw Moo Moo at about 4.30pm on Monday afternoon with what looked like an arrow through his head.

He hid in bushes and would not come out.
