Healing Hands

By Clayton Williams Of Spokane

Kerry Fisher and Russ Howard

My everyday heroes are a couple who own a pet clinic. They are my heroes because one day after my mom and I brought my cat, Cornilouis, to get groomed, the groomer told us that there was an infection on his head and she told us to bring him to the vet.

We looked all over town, but we couldn’t find a place to take him. On the way back to our house we saw a little place called the Veterinary Wellness Center on Division. We brought him there and even though they were closed they still helped us.

Cornilouis had surgery about seven minutes later. They told me to give him some kind of medicine two times a day and to bring him back in 10 days. Cornilouis is now fine and is acting like a normal cat. That’s why they are my heroes.
