A Fargo shelter is seeking donations to help take care of a cat who was shot.

The cat, who the CATS Cradle Shelter is calling Bullet, was rescued from someone who had been taking in homeless cats and trying to find them forever homes, a post on the shelter's Facebook page says.

CATS Cradle says Bullet has what appears to be an entrance and exit wound, and was grazed on his back. His front left leg also has an exposed bone that's protruding out.

The shelter hopes they can fix his leg, and notes they're giving him pain medicine and antibiotics because his wounds are infected.

Bullet is resting comfortably, the shelter says, and they plan to give more updates on his condition soon.

If you'd like to donate to the shelter to help pay for Bullet's medical treatment, you can do so on the CATS Cradle website or by commenting on this Facebook post.
