Kitten With Disability Wants To Run With His Mom
Tissues at the ready for this emotional story. Somebody heard a cat crying in the basement of an apartment block but couldn’t work out where the sound was coming from. Then suddenly, another cat appears but she appeared to be very weary of humans. After the people leave (they have set up cameras) the cat goes to the place where the sound is coming from and there is a ginger kitten that has obviously lost the use of his back legs. As it turns out, this is the kitten’s mother. He tries to leave with her but is unable to make the difficult passage to get out of the basement. The kitten cries out to his mother but there’s nothing she can do, she feels that this is the safest place for him. He has no choice is nothing for him to do other than to hide.
Then the rescue begins. They eventually manage to find the spot where he is hiding and get him into the cat carrier – he is not happy about this. After an examination at the vets they discover that he condition is serious. An x-ray shows that his 5th vertebrae has lifted and is pressing on his spinal nerves, this is what is causing the injury to his hind legs. He also has a fracture to his ribs. They do what they can with surgery but the nerves are cut so this little kitty will be paralyzed for life. But hope arrives with a woman that wants to adopt him, she already has five cats, one of them is also disabled. She feels that she has something to offer him and takes him home to meet his new family and names him Superman. He couldn’t have been adopted into a better place that’s full of love and understanding for his situation.
