It is estimated that both limbs are salvageable and Howard will adapt well to his unique ability to get around. But he’ll need several surgeries to make it.
If you would like to donate toward Howard’s medical cost send donations to
Animal Care Fund 600 Curtis St. Mason MI 48854 Attn: Howard or call 517 676-8372 for credit cards.

This is such a touching story and God Bless the 2 little boys who found it in their heart to go to the extra trouble of helping the injured kitty ... no doubt their parents deserve praise for having instilled in them respect for all living things, something that should be done in all families! Thanks also to all the people involved in getting this little sweetheart the care needed!
