    A Tampa-area family's cat is recovering after she was found with an arrow shot through her head.

    Owner Tyra Bulluck said Akila got out of the family's home Tuesday. The family searched for her for hours before finding her in a neighbor's yard with the arrow through the top of her head.

    Akila was taken to the Animal Coalition of Tampa and underwent emergency surgery to remove the arrow. The surgery was successful and Akila was allowed to go home.
