NEW IBERIA, LA (WVUE) -

A friendly black and white spotted cat called Sox was shot with a bow and arrow in New Iberia. The ordeal has traumatized the cat’s owners, according to the Humane Society of Louisiana.

The 3-year-old feline was shot with a bow and arrow Saturday night between 10: 00 and 10: 30 pm, according to her owners. The couple live in the 4200 block of Northside Rd., New Iberia. 

They have filed a complaint with the Iberia Parish Sheriff’s Department.

The arrow entered above Sox's top left shoulder, came out and re-entered on her left side and the shaft exited through her backside, narrowly missing her major organ and arteries, a spokesman for the HSL said. 

Sox is being treated at the Dupuy Veterinary Hospital. With the discount it usually gives to charitable rescue organizations, Sox's surgery is expected to only cost $400.00, and the Humane Society is hoping to raise most of the funds to help out.

"After being shot, Sox crawled up the outside steps onto the porch and cried at the door with the arrow shot through her. We didn't know how she made it home. It was a miracle. We are traumatized, fearful and in awe that someone would actually do this to any animal. We do not seek revenge of any kind but would be so grateful if the person or persons involved would come forward," said one of the owners.

The Humane Society hopes to raise the $400.00 needed to pay for Sox's surgery through its social media channels. Donations can be made online through the group's website atwww.humanela.org, sent by mail to the Humane Society of Louisiana, P.O. Box 740321, New Orleans, LA 70174 or dropped off to the Dupuy Veterinary Hospital.

The Humane Society is also offering a $500.00 reward for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible. Those with tips or leads are encouraged to contact the Iberia Parish Sheriff's Department.
