Cat shot twice; leg amputated

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) - A cat was shot twice and left for dead before a woman discovered the injured animal crying for help. One of the cat's legs was amputated as a result of his injuries.

It doesn't take long to see everyone adores Timmy the Cat with all the love and affection he received Wednesday morning; a far cry from what Timmy experienced just two days before.

"it was just [yelling] like meowing, not regular meowing, but like awful MEOW," said Jennell Jackson.

She was walking near her home, not far from Greer Stadium, when she spotted the cat and discovered something was wrong.

"We went to pick him up and he was just limp,” said Jackson. “We got looking and both of his arms were just bloody and he couldn't move them."
