My hyperthyroid cat had x-rays today in preparation for his radioiodine treatment. The vet said that he had a BB in his right shoulder area. I was so shocked that I didn't ask the questions I should have asked, like whether it is in the bone or under the skin. It has been there for at least 9 months, since he hasn't been outside since I found him. It doesn't seem to be bothering him. Should it be removed or is it better to leave it alone? I'm still fuming that someone could even think to shoot at a cat.
