*SAFE 05/18/15 * HIT BY CAR!! NEEDS PLACEMENT BY 7PM TODAY!!
Meet Grahm!! Grahm is a very sweet cat that came in with multiple injuries after reportedly being hit by a car. Grahm will need immediate medical care to help him recover. He will need xrays to determine the extent of his fractures, which may include a spinal fracture. He is currently able to urinate on his own and does not appear paralyzed, though he is non-ambulatory. Despite his pain, Grahm is still amazingly friendly and enjoys the attention given to him. Please pull this sweet cat from MACC by 7pm tonight!!
