APA! says the cat, Penelope, is eight months old. Her jaw was broken in the attack, and she will need additional jaw surgery to fully recover. Her front leg was amputated as a result of the attack.
The shelter is asking for donations to help with Penelope's care, which will cost $1,600. Go here to donate.
