Stories like these greatly upset Fur Kids Foundation, as we never really understand why people are cruel to animals. This is Henley, a very young kitten who was found with an injured leg, and it was later discovered that he had been shot.
Cats are masters at hiding their pain, but if your cat shows some of the symptoms below, they may have a broken bone:
The vet told Henley’s family the best option for him would be an amputation.
Henley’s dad had recently been laid off from work and has been away from his family looking for work in another state; his mom is unable to work. Henley’s family was barely scraping by, so they knew the only way they would be able to help their beloved pet was to reach out to Fur Kids Foundation. We were able to help out with Henley's amputation and his mom has let us know that it was so successful that Henley never knew that he once had four legs!
