Rescued Kitten Who Lost His Back Legs to Injury Walks For the First Time Using a Tiny Custom Wheelchair

A tough little tuxedo kitten named Cassidy who lost his back legs shortly after he was born, is a fighter who never let his disability get him down. Through the wonderful humans of Tiny Kittens who rescued him, Mountain View Veterinary Hospital who provided medical care and Handicapped Pets Canada who provided the wheels, Cassidy is now mobile and ready to go.

This tiny feral kitten lost both back legs when he was born, and somehow managed to survive for nine weeks in the forest. It is a medical miracle that he survived even a day with such severe injuries, let alone nine weeks. His little body had just about given out from starvation and infection by the time we rescued him, but he never gave up!

A playful Cassidy still raring to go, even without his wheels.
