LANCASTER, PA (CNN) - Police in Pennsylvania say a man shot this cat in the head with a hunting arrow.

It went into the front of Mack's head, through his skull, and out the back, narrowly missing his brain.

Somehow, he survived.

It happened at Mack's home in Lancaster last month.

A witness reported seeing someone standing in the backyard, but when the witness saw the wounded cat on the porch, the person took off.  

An emergency pet center removed the arrow.

Vets say Mack's back in good health, but will have a lifetime of sinus issues.

Police are asking for the public's help in finding the person responsible.
