A veterinarian who shot an arrow through a cat's head is fighting to keep her license.

The Texas Board of Veterinary Medical Examiners has filed an official complaint against Kristen Lindsey, the Austin veterinarian who bragged on social media after shooting and killing a feral cat with a bow and arrow.

An administrative law judge will now review the complaint, and could decide to revoke Lindsey's veterinary license.

In the Facebook post, Lindsey is seen holding a dead cat by an arrow lodged in its head. "My first bow kill. The only good feral tomcat is one with an arrow through its head," she allegedly wrote.

After the post surfaced last year, Lindsey was fired from her job at a Brenham animal hospital, which faced heavy public backlash.

"Those actions don't any way portray what we're here for at Washington Animal Hospital," the hospital's Dr. Bruce Buenger told abc13 last year. "We put our heart and soul in this place."
