ZEPHYRHILLS, Fla. — A Florida animal rescue has found a small orange and white cat with multiple arrow wounds.

The Tampa Bay Times reports the cat was seen in Zephyrhills, Florida, several times last week before St. Francis Society Animal Rescue volunteers caught the cat Thursday night. A Facebook post by the rescue says the cat, now named Sir Robin, had an infected wound from an arrow on his back, along with a wound on his ear and several infected teeth.

After Sir Robin received medical treatment and visited an emergency vet, the rescue says they expect a full recovery. The rescue has filed a report with Pasco County Animal Services, which it says has opened an investigation.
