Family cat shot with BB gun on Wilmington Island gets therapy

Punkin the cat, who was shot with a BB gun twice on Wilmington Island, just wrapped up what his owners are calling a successful visit to the vet.

The cat is still unable to walk, but they did get the OK to start physical therapy.

The vet said if there are no improvements within the next couple of months, the family will have to get him a wheelchair.

Animal Control is now involved in the investigation.
