— A veterinarian is helping a cat recover in from a bad accident in Harnett County.

The cat was rescued after it dug itself out of a dirt grave. The woman who found it said some boys buried the cat because they thought it was dead.

A veterinarian now caring for it said the cat appeared to have been hit by a car. It lost its eye and has a broken jaw.

After 11 days of intensive care at Vets for Pets Animal Hospital in Dunn, the cat is almost well enough to be adopted.
