BRENTWOOD, Tenn.- A 2-year-old American short-hair orange tabby cat named Timmy is recovering at the Blue Pearl Veterinary Partners clinic in Brentwood after being shot in both his front legs.  

The cat was found near the Tennessee State Fairgrounds and brought to the clinic by a good Samaritan. Timmy's left front leg had to be amputated due to the severity of the wound, but Dr. Kevin Au was able to save his right leg. 

After a blood transfusion, Timmy is expected to make a full recovery. Those interested in donating to his care are asked to contact Nashville Cat Rescue at nashvillecatrescue.com.
