NORWICH, Conn. (WFSB) -

A cat is recovering after being shot through the chest with an arrow in Norwich, Conn., Monday evening.

Mayor Peter Nystrom located the cat, who is being called Elliot. Nystrom immediately called the animal control officer, who was able to rush the cat to the Friends Animal Hospital in Norwich.

Veterinarians at Friends Animal Hospital were able to remove the arrow.

"Elliot is resting comfortably after having the arrow removed, although we still don't know if there will be long-term nerve damage," Friends Animal Hospital posted on its Facebook page.

Nystrom personally paid for Elliot's expenses, officials with Friends Animal Hospital stated.
