We have an injured bat - a cat seems to have broken its' wing. Where can I take it to be nurtured back to health and let go?????

Take it to a vet! If they do not treat it, they should know who will. We have zoo vets in our area who would definitely take care of them, so I'm sure someone is available in your area. Most vets are true humanitarians. They are more educated than a medical doctor and they love animals more than money; all you have to do is look at their skimpy paychecks to prove it.
