A call from a local animal control shook everyone at the Cat House on the Kings (Parlier, California) when they learned about a 6-month-old calico cat and her traumatic ordeal.

"She has been shot in the back of her head at close range by a pellet gun," Harvie Schreiber of the Cat House on the Kings told Love Meow. "Animal Control is investigating the incident."

When they were told that the calico cat needed help, they took her in right away.

Despite what Holly had gone through, this sweet kitty surprised everyone with her enormous heart.

Holly was found with a pellet stuck in her right eye. When she arrived at the sanctuary, she was a bit guarded, but it didn't take long for things to turn around for this incredibly brave kitty.

After they treated her for the trauma, she looked much better. "She is awaiting surgery to remove the pellet. We have to wait for her swelling to go down."

A stressful few days later, this beautiful calico girl not only held no grudge against any humans, but she was accepting pets and cuddles, and even purred at her caregivers to show them gratitude.
