Welcome to Critter Crusaders of Cedar Rapids
Murray the Kitten
Murray had been hit by a car. He suffered a severely broken jaw, a large gaping laceration in the roof of his mouth, a contused lung, and an eye injury. After surgeries and a long recovery, he was adopted by Heidi Murtha, the woman who rescued him! A perrrrfect ending to a near tragic story.
