MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - Vermont volunteers at the Felines & Friends Foundation say they rescued a cat that had been previously shot in the face.

The Caledonian Record reports (http://bit.ly/1cRq9ef) that X-rays showed the cat had been shot point blank and the bullet and shrapnel were in his head close to his spine.

Staff at The Animal Doctor in Newport Center, where the cat was brought, call him Salem.

Connie Knaggs, a worker at The Animal Doctor, says Salem “must have a strong will to live” if he could survive his injuries.

Thanks to the surgery at the clinic, Salem can chew his food and is on the mend until he can be medically cleared and set for a new home.
