Miss Lucy, a ginger Cornish Rex, arrived home at about 10.10pm last night with gunshot wounds to her abdomen.

She underwent surgery at Vet Services in Masterton this morning after x-rays showed bullet fragments in both her front and rear legs.

"The bullet tore through muscle and there are a number of bullet fragments remaining," Senior Sergeant Jennifer Hansen said.

Miss Lucy is expected to take weeks to recover.
