‘He’s a miracle guy, he really is,’ said OAHS Executive Director Joni Geiger.
A miracle Bernard, also called Bernie, survived after being brought to the Oshkosh Area Humane Society with a traumatic injury.
‘He was so severely injured and he had a lot of dried blood on him that we simply couldn’t tell what was going on with him,’ said Geiger.
Geiger says they rushed him to the Animal Referral Center, where it was determined Bernie had been shot in the head.
The bullet went from his forehead near his eye down through his mouth and damaged his jaw before lodging in his shoulder.
‘It was pretty shocking simply, not only because who would do that, and then he’s just such an incredibly nice cat,’ said Geiger. ‘He hasn’t met a person he does not like, he’s very friendly, he’s very outgoing, they say he likes making biscuits all the time.’
That niceness has been particularly helpful to the experienced foster home now in charge of Bernie’s care.
‘He’s such a good cat it makes my job a lot easier,’ said Bernie’s foster mom, who preferred to not share her name.
That daily job includes giving food and medicine to Bernie through a feeding tube, changing his bandages, and keeping everything clean.”
