Single or multiple shooters?

The article caused talk in the town, which made it possible to learn that at least two other cats in the neighborhood were also seriously injured by gunshots, the first in 2019, the second in 2020, but they survived. Their owners live in rue du Noyer-du-Breuil and rue de la Tuilerie, in the same housing estate as Garfield’s mistress. These two cases were also reported at the time to the gendarmerie, and concern cats that do not stray too far from their homes. “Obviously, the person is close to home”concludes the owner of Garfield, without however being certain that the three facts involve one and the same shooter.
