On Saturday the Engen family brought the cat to the Pennington county human society. And you might say this cat used up one of it 9 lives because Wubbie, that's its name, is doing well after the arrow was removed.

The Human Society is treating the wounds and giving the cat antibiotics. The crime has been reported to police, but it’s still not known who shot the arrow.

“Make people realize that we are not going to be putting up, with animal cruelty in Thief River. That this is ridiculous causing harm.”

The Engen family is adopting the lucky cat, saying he's now part of their family.
