LEARNED, Miss. – BC the cat survived, but likely used up one of his nine lives when someone shot an arrow through his head. The 2-year-old gray and white tabby came home one day last week looking like he was doing a bad imitation of the Steve Martin skit from the 1970s. BC's arrow was pointing front-to-back rather than side-to-side.
Owner Ralph Henderson told WLBT-TV of Jackson that BC was walking and meowing, but was having trouble eating because the arrow kept bumping the cat food bowl.
Dr. Troy Majure, the veterinarian who removed the arrow, said it chipped BC's skull and somehow arched over the brain.
The only signs of the kitty's injury this week were scabs on the front and back of his head.
