A cat has had to be put down after it was shot.
The English blue, called Alfie, was found injured by two air gun pellets on July 20 in Fuller Street, Fairstead.
Police are now asking the public to report any sightings of people misusing air weapons.
PC Andy Crow, who is investigating the case, said: "This is a despicable act and I appeal to anyone who has any information to contact Braintree Police Station area investigation team on 101."
