Unlikely Healer Walks on Three Paws
4 The Love Of Animals
MAY 8, 2011
Half a decade ago, in a little mountain town about 60 miles northeast of San Diego, a feral kitten dragged his front left leg uselessly. Gazing at Cathy Conheim, a psychotherapist raised to hate cats because they ate birds, and Donna Brooks, a retired physician and sculptor who had never had a cat, but always reached out to heal anyone who was hurting, the kitten eyed them hopefully. Over the past six years, Henry has received almost 50,000 letters from humans and critters.
