The Putnam County SPCA has received calls and e-mails concerning the cat who died last week after a gunshot wound and subsequent paralysis, and officials are hoping the response continues.
The incident occurred Feb. 7 in Putnam Lake. The 7-month-old cat died a few days later, at which time members of the SPCA asked for the public's help in finding the shooter.
