Help Heal Henry

This little warrior cat is Henry. One day this tiny grey kitten was found at the side of a highway, severely injured after being struck by a vehicle and left abandoned. Kind souls brought him to an emergency veterinary clinic, where he was bandaged and put on IV. Because he was a stray, he was transferred to Edmonton Humane Society .

When Operations Supervisor Mariah took a look at his injuries and held his quiet body in her hands, she wondered whether this kitten was going to pull through. There was a gaping wound and exposed tendons on one of his skinny hind legs. One front leg was badly dislocated, and there was obvious head trauma. It was love at first sight, and Mariah decided to name him Henry.

The EHS veterinary team checked Henry and made him as comfortable as possible as he faced his critical recovery period. There was a definite possibility that Henry's injuries were too much for his tiny body to overcome.

When morning came, Henry showed his true spirit - he is a warrior! Overnight he had eaten well and was already vocal about wanting some love and attention. It was a great sign!

Today, despite his casts, Henry is a very lively little kitten. He’s a flurry of energy, completely oblivious to his injuries.  Staff have commented "He doesn't know he's broken!" 

Despite his playfulness, Henry still isn't totally in the clear. Over the coming weeks he will be monitored to see if his head injury has any lasting effect, and hopefully he continues to improve. When he is bigger his front, dislocated leg may need to be amputated. He is being cared for at a foster home, and will visit the EHS Animal Health Team often for check-ups, bandage changes and assessments.

All funds raised through Help Heal Henry will support his treatment along with care for other major medical cases at Edmonton Humane Society.
