Huey’s Ready for a Second Chance

By Willow Liroff

In a perfect world, Huey wouldn’t need Cat Town. But when he had nowhere else to turn, we knew we had to help.

Huey loves to cuddle, touch noses, and greets everyone he meets like an old friend. If not for a cruel twist of fate, this sweet boy would have had no problem being adopted. But a yank to his tail left him unable to control his bladder and bowels, and in terrible pain. Suddenly, Huey's world was turned upside down.

We jumped in to get him the urgent medical care and hospitalization he needed. Because we acted quickly, Huey is in stable condition, but the effects of his injury linger. He is still playful, affectionate as can be — and now he uses his litter box faithfully. But, sometimes when he sleeps, or sits in a certain position, his bladder leaks without him knowing.

Huey’s condition continues to improve, but his treatment is costly. We know he’ll have a better chance at adoption if we can help him overcome this medical hurdle. That’s why I'm asking for your help.

Please donate to Cat Town’s Emergency Medical Fund to help Huey, and other cats needing urgent care, today.

Your support not only helps Huey, but allows us to respond quickly when the shelter calls on us with their most urgent cases.

Please donate today to give more cats like Huey their best chance to be part of a family.
