The cat was discovered in the area of Southfields Road and West Lane in Aquebogue on Monday, Oct. 11, according to the Suffolk County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.
The cat, named Abraham by rescuers, was taken to an animal rescue hospital, where it was discovered that he was shot and had a pellet lodged in his spine.

Caroline McElfresh said on Thursday at around 1 p.m., she left her house. And not even 15 minutes later, her husband called because he could not find the dogs, who somehow got out.READ MORE: COVID-19 In Pittsburgh: Allegheny County Reports 3-Day Total Of 1,523 New Cases, 10 More Deaths
The two searched everywhere but could not find the animals. The couple then put a notice on Facebook. They received some leads, but nothing concrete.
They even searched the woods, but again no luck. Days passed and then over the weekend, the neighbors called saying the dogs had been found dead within miles of where they were searching.
“Aspen had two, she was shot under the armpit,” McElfresh said. “It went through and through. She was shot again above the neck. Hagrid was shot right in the face. … Once that happened, the police came, they took what they could. We didn’t really know what to do at that point.”MORE NEWS: Police Report Uptick In Thefts From Vehicles
