Hannah Shaw aka Kitten Lady is a neonatal kitten warrior and has some great advice if you are considering becoming a foster parent. She has has dedicated her life to finding innovative ways to protect animals.

In this video we meet Apple, She’s a 3.5 week old kitten that has a condition known as swimmer syndrome, this causes her back legs to splay outwards from her body and prevents her from being able to walk properly. Watch as Hannah figures out the best way to help her through trial and error. It’s no easy task as this is the first time that Hannah has had to try a method like this, it will take time but hopefully along with some physiotherapy, Apple will be able to walk like any other cat.
