Mystic appeared to be non weight bearing on his left hind leg when he came into our care. Once examined by the vet it was discovered his leg had literally shattered her tibia and fibula (leg bones).
The X-Rays also showed that Mystic had been shot five times with BB pellets. They were found in his lower abdomen, ventral lumbar region and front right leg, one in the muscle around his thoracis spine, and one near his ribs. He will need to have surgery to remove as many pellets as possible and may need monitoring of the pellets near his spine & ribs as it may be to risky for the vets to remove at this time.
Mystic is a very sweet cat that met with unfortunate circumstances. As he is a shy guy, this experience has caused him a bit of anxiety. With surgery and continued healing hopefully he will be relieved from his discomfort and be able to feel like a calm happy cat again.
There is an active cruelty investigation into Mystic's case.
