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.

Henry update ~
We have news on our ‪#‎warriorcat‬!
When Henry came in on Tuesday evening for his pre-surgery exam, our veterinary team decided he's still too little to undergo the amputation procedure.
So, our little Henry will have to wait another few weeks until he gains some lbs!
Not to worry though, other than his one leg, Henry is in good health and is gaining weight steadily.

Thanks so much to everyone following Henry's story! Henry will remain in his foster home for the time being, hanging out with his foster siblings.

Over the weekend, our ‪Warrior Cat went in for a checkup with the medical team. Now that he weighs in at a staggering 1.07 kg, he's been booked in for surgery. Tomorrow, June 2nd, little Henry will have his leg amputated as well as his neuter surgery. Not to worry though; Henry will adjust very well without his front leg — and he won't have to deal with that pesky cast anymore!

Henry still has a lot of healing to do, and we will not be making plans for his adoption just yet. A huge thanks to the ‪Edmonton‬ community for following Henry's story! Your love and support has helped with Henry's healing.

Hey everyone - wow thank you so much for your support of Henry! At his check-up yesterday, our Animal Health Team observed that the scar tissue has formed well over his exposed ligaments. That is very positive! It still seems that his front leg will need to be removed, but our team will continue to assess it. He will stay in foster care and needs to continue gaining weight. All funds raised will be used for Henry's care, and for the care of other Sick and Injured Animals at Edmonton Humane Society.

We're almost there! Thank you for the outpouring of love and support for Henry - he's back at the shelter Thursday for a check-up and we're hoping he's gained some weight over the past couple of days. We are so encouraged by all of the support for this little kitten, and for all of our shelter animals!
