    Default Future looks bright for 'Combine Kitty'

    On the mend: "Howard the Combine Kitty" survived having his front paws severed by farm machinery and is continuing to improve.

    A 3-month-old kitten who survived having its front paws severed by farm machinery and was found by two young boys near an Alaiedon Township farm field, is continuing to improve, officials said.
    Letters, cards and donations have flooded Ingham County Animal Control, Director Jamie McAloon Lampman said.

    The agency on Wednesday already had received more than 300 letters and cards and $2,000 in donations, McAloon Lampman said. A man in Onaway sent a card. There also have been inquiries from the United Kingdom, she said.
    The black-and-white male kitten, dubbed "Howard the Combine Kitty," will eventually need some kind of prosthetics to replace the paws, but he recently began standing up on his own and using his litter box, McAloon Lampman said.
    The two front paws are now bandaged stumps. It is believed he was struck by a farm combine.
    Howard has undergone two surgeries at Lansing Veterinary Medical Center.
    The care is being paid for by donations.
    "The response has been just amazing," McAloon Lampman said. "A lot of wonderful, heartfelt letters."
