In photos posted online, the arrow seems to have narrowly missed the cat’s left eye.

The cat was rushed to a nearby animal clinical where it is in critical condition, but alive, according to the post.

The ACFC says that in the 48 hours leading up to the event, seven cats had gone missing in the area. Two traps used by the ACFC were also been vandalized beyond use, they said.

The ACFC say they contacted area law enforcement and are asking anyone with information to contact the organization.

Facebook users have responded with disgust over the misfortune of the “arrow cat.”

“This not only sickens me and makes me sad, it makes me extremely angry. What right does someone think they have to destroy life, especially a pet of a loving caring family,” one user wrote.

“Absolutely horrible. That cat didn’t deserve this. With a little love and care, this feline friend will be running around again soon,” wrote another.

My heart hurts. This is sick. And unfortunately, this is what the world is coming to. No one cares about anyone or anything.”
