For weeks, Troy Quimby noticed an orange cat hanging around his property in East Machias. The cat seemed at ease and knew when Quimby’s dogs were kenneled so he could move safely around the yard. Then one Sunday morning, Quimby spotted the cat just lying in his garden.
“It looked like it was trying to get warm, I walked over and wondered what was sticking out from his arm,” said Quimby. “Then I realized the cat had something impaled in it.”
