A hunter stumbles across several dead cats in the Apalachicola Forest and deputies are still trying to figure out how it happened.
Only one kitten was alive and 5 others were shot to death near Forest Road 361.
Authorities say several shotgun shells and a bloody newspaper are now being examined for clues.
Animal rescue officials say the three month old pastel calico kitten named Robbie is recovering at the Cauzican Care Rescue center in Crawfordville.
Officials say as of Sunday morning, the kitten was dragging her back legs as she tried to walk but she is happy and eating normally.
