This is one of those rare stories that proves beyond a shadow of doubt that where there’s a will, there’s a way. These three little kittens were born with a neurological condition that doesn’t allow them to walk on their own. But with the help of some very special volunteers and a unique invention, the girls are getting around just find these days!
Check it out from People:
Powerpuff Girl kittens Blossom, Bubbles and Buttercup were born with Cerebellar Hypoplasia, a neurological condition which causes jerky and uncoordinated movements. The three cuties could barely move, before 2016 gifted them with a trio of specially-made wheelchairs. Now, the adorable baby cats are starting to move around on their own and are ready for adoption into a loving home.
And here’s more from Love Meow:
They were saved from a kill-shelter at around a week old before anyone noticed anything was wrong with them.
The feline sisters came to Kitten Rescue for a second chance at life. The nursery manager quickly realized that something wasn’t right – the three little siblings were not outgrowing their floppiness.
All three have CH, which was caused from exposure to Panleukopenia in utero. They cannot walk on their own, but the volunteers at Kitten Rescue are determined to help them.
“One of the volunteers made little wheelchairs for them to gain strength and they can stand and practice walking in them, which is amazing,” Casey Elise Christopher told Love Meow.
These special carts allow caregivers to work with the kittens on strengthening their muscles so they can learn to hold their bodies up on their own and even walk.
Just a few seconds after they got in their new wheels, the kittens were so excited to be able to stand up that they tried to catch whatever toys that came their way.
“These girls are courageous and strong, they don’t know any different and are so happy and loving. They will remain with us for as long as it takes to find them special adoptive homes where they will be cherished and cared for,” Kitten Rescue said.
Just because some are born differently abled, doesn’t mean we should count them out! With a little help from their friends, these kittens are proving that overcoming obstacles is not only possible, but with love, it’s probable.
Here’s a video of these sweet little girls… Enjoy!
