Griswold Cat Proves He Really Does Have 9 Lives

GRISWOLD, Conn. (AP) – A cat is recovering after being shot through the face by an arrow.

The cat named Coffee struggled to approach owner Annmarie Jenkins of Griswold in late October because he was tripping over the arrow.

The arrow went through Coffee’s cheek and out his chin.

It also pushed some of his teeth loose.

He’s expected to heal in about a month, but is already showing signs of a quick recovery.

Jenkins says the injury wasn’t life-threatening, but was painful.

She says he didn’t understand what was happening.
