Brownie the cat used up at least one of his nine lives after being shot through the skull with an arrow.
The 13-inch arrow became lodged in the cat's head after entering its skull above the right eye.
Amazingly four-year-old Brownie, who was treated by a vet in Bloomington, Indiana, is expected to make a full recovery.

'It's horribly tragic and a miracle the cat is even alive and has such a great attitude still through all of that,' said Sarah Hayes, CEO of the Monroe County Humane Association.
'You cannot, in this society, abuse animals like this and get away.'
