LETTERS: Shots at my cat concerning

LETTERS: Shots at my cat concerning

He is my pal, friend and buddy, so when someone shoots him I get very upset and angry.

Just because someone doesn’t like me doesn’t mean they have to take it out on my cat.

I have phoned the Sooke RCMP, animal control, SPCA and bylaw enforcement, and was told by everyone to get a photo or there’s nothing you can do.

The RCMP tells me there are no shooting Airsoft guns in Sooke, and where I live, I am part of Sooke.

I have put up a 4×4 piece of plywood sign that says please call the RCMP if you see anyone shooting at my cat, Big Buddy, and put up more video cameras.

I have also been shot at while in my garden, before my cat was shot at three different times.

Big Buddy doesn’t come out front to meet me when I come home, and he runs and hides when he hears something like big trucks, noises and more.

A lot of my neighbours are watching out for Big Buddy now, and there has been no shooting since the sign went up.

Thanks to all my neighbours for their support.
