This is Jimbo, Jimbo landed at the NY ACC shelter after a horrible individual threw him out of a window of a building from 3 stories high.
We pulled Jimbo at once the moment we learned about him and he was transferred to out veterinarian in CT, where we learned that his abuse started way before he was thrown out of that window.
The life of abuse and misery this kitty endured his entire life is beyond anyone's imagination. it hurt deep in our hearts just to think about it.
As cruel as this may sound him being thrown out of a window was probably the best thing that could have happened to him. Even though a huge price to pay for him to break with his past and start his new begging, but a new beginning to look forward to indeed, as his life will change dramatically now and forever.
All of Jimbo's limbs are broken, some are old fractures either inflicted purposely by the horrible humans that Jimbo lived with before or by the several other times that he has been thrown out of a window.
His palate is broken but it is not a fresh fracture although it needs to also be repaired.
Due to old fractures on his hind legs that did not fused properly this poor kitty walks on his ankles and both of his front legs have now new fractures on top of the old ones.
The one leg is completely shattered and will need full reconstruction of the leg with a specialist. Upon consultation with the secularist our hopes for fixing Jimbo were shattered because the cost of this is prohibited at around 20 K for a 6 to 8 hour surgery!
Amputation was discussed, but not an option because being that the other legs are all broken too and his walk is to begin with not normal, there is no way for him to get around on 3 legs.
Since we have an amazing veterinarian he made some phone calls and there is a traveling surgeon that works with doctor Marsh, that can do the surgery at a very much reduced rate than the specialist, still the price is hefty therefore we need all the help we can receive so Jimbo's surgery can done.
Thank you in advance for anything you can do to help fix sweet Jimbo so he can once and for all embark on his abuse free journey and experience a future filled with the love, compassion and caring that he never knew before and so much deserves.

P.S. We spoke with NY ACC regarding opening an investigation to see if the monster or monsters that did they to Jimbo could be caught. ACC responded that their cruelty investigator and the NYPD did and investigation and that they did not find enough evidence.
Soon will be putting out a petition to put pressure on the NYPD and ACC cruelty investigator so they can re-open that investigation in hopes of seeking justice for Jimbo.
Here is the e mail we received from our vet the day that Jimbo arrived at his clinic:
Well... you sent me another extremely sweet cat, despite his circumstances. Cats are pretty resilient animals. As far as I can tell so far we need to neuter him, he has a cleft palate that needs repair (suspect this is congenital in nature), and the biggest problem is a multitude of orthopedic problems. He appears systemically healthy - strong heart, normal lymph nodes, normally feeling kidneys, good teeth, etc. The right front leg is the worst with a previous fracture of the humerus but both wrists are not normal and I am worried about the hind legs as well (he walks on his ankles like a human). I am waiting for them to send the x-rays they already took and suspect we will need to take several more xrays. For now we are giving him love and food and shelter pending the xrays.
