Howard the Combine Kitty has a Home

Howard, the kitten whose front paws were amputated after an assumed encounter with farm machinery, has a home. The kitten was adopted by the family of Kyle and Bryce Billingslea, the two boys who originally found the kitten in a ditch and sought help for his injuries. A video from the Lansing State Journal shows Howard adjusting well to house cat life. Link -via Arbroath

Wonderful Story!

We just adopted a kitty who had to have a back leg amputated due to an accident. He gets around quite well and is a real snuggle bunny. I have family who adopted a dog that had a bad leg and only one eye. Bessie just keeps on going! I think animals with disabilities just don't know it's "supposed" to slow them down. They just keep going.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

I'm so glad this story has a happy ending. Howard's life will never be ideal, but it can at least be comfortable. It doesn't make up for what happened, but I'm reassured by the humanity displayed by everyone involved. Solace in little things.
