DFO’s Critters: Max The Short Hair

Max, a three-year-old domestic short hair, is seen with an arrow through his ear on Sunday in Santa Cruz, Calif. Nancy Paquin, Max's owner, says after a weekend away from home, the cat returned Sunday night with an arrow sticking through one ear and into the base of its head. Paquin and her husband, Brad, took the cat to a veterinary hospital, where the arrow was removed. She says except for a hole through its ear, "Max is doing really well."
