Pet cat shot with a bow and arrow by a cruel yob suffers in agony.

The black and white moggie, called Chico, was rescued from the streets in Sinop, in the state of Mato Grosso, Brazil, with the arrow sticking straight through his body.

Looking dazed, the critically wounded puss seems exhausted and in too much pain to move as the clip ends.

Chico, according to local media, died on 30th January after an emergency op by a veterinary surgeon to remove the arrow.

It is believed local thugs had been taking potshots at the poor animal in a sick game.

“Before you went, you knew love.”

The arrow had pierced Chico’s stomach and hit his spleen and gallbladder and an airgun pellet was found lodged in his chest.

Vet Juarez said: “He presented complications related to the sepsis that caused his death.

“We fought together with Chico from the beginning, losing him was never an option, but there are certain situations that are out of our hands.”

It is unclear who shot the cat and if a complaint has been filed with the police.
