Indianapolis, IN – Veterinary staff at an Indiana animal shelter saved the life of a cat who was stabbed in the head with needle-nose pliers. According to Indianapolis Animal Care Services, someone found the cat with the tool embedded in her head and they rushed her to their facility for care.
A veterinarian was able to remove the pliers from her skull and during the surgical procedure, he could see that the pliers barely missed her brain and optic nerve. Thanks to the prompt care, the cat is expected to make a full recovery and her eyesight has been spared.
The shelter said that the cat has been adopted by a member of their medical team.
Donations to the shelter’s emergency care fund can be made here.
