Some years back, when this idea of loads of cats being shot with airguns was pushed by the RSPCA, I did a survey of about ten veterinary practices down here in Devon. I asked them if they could tell me how often they had cats in for treatment, that had been shot with an air gun.

The information that came back showed that the average vet could expect to see such a case, twice during their working lives.

Two cases in forty years is two too many but it's hardly a sign of gratuitous cruelty.
