Kitten Sets His Mind on Walking Again and Wants to Be on the Go All the Time

A kitten who set his mind on walking again, is now on the go all the time.

Jessica Ruf, the founder of the Kitten Carer Rescue, was contacted about a kitten with paralyzed hind legs, in need of rescue. She sprang into action and took him in to safety.

The kitten was in rough shape upon arrival—he was just skin and bones, lethargic, hungry and covered in fleas. “It was evident he had no movement in the lower half of his body, as he would drag his torso and legs across the ground to move only using his front paws,” Jessica shared with Love Meow.

Even with all that he’d been through, the kitten was motivated to eat and had a strong meow from the start.

The kitten named Mohan was estimated to be three weeks old. Courtney, a foster volunteer of the rescue, welcomed him into her loving home.

“He snuggled in close to me all night and just stared at me with those big beautiful eyes—I knew he was happy to be safe,” Courtney shared with Love Meow. “He was hugging my fingers and a teddy all night, purring.”

After a visit to the vet, it was determined that the kitten had no feeling from his waist down to the tip of his tail.

“Mohan has some compression between L1 and L2 in his spinal cord. This is likely from a serious fall,” Courtney added. “We hope that acupuncture will help with Mohan’s recovery, as it increases the blood circulation and resolves swelling.”
