    A Disabled Kitten Was Rescued From The Streets And Underwent An Amazing Transformation.

    The cruelty that some people can show innocent animals can be bewildering. Three helpless litters of kittens were left to die in someoneís yard by an anonymous, cold-hearted person. Thankfully, the People And Cats Together group received a call about the abandoned animals and made it their goal to save them.
    Once on the scene, a person noticed a small white and black kitten that was struggling in some bushes. The little cat couldnít walk or even stand. He had to drag his back legs if he wanted to move. He didnít realize something was wrong, but his rescuers knew they had to act.
    They named the cat Thumper. Vets quickly determined that his disability was the result of a neurological condition that he couldnít walk.
    His disease had no cure.

    Sometimes cats can recover from the conditionÖ but sometimes they do not.

    Vets were unsure if Thumper would ever walk like his litter mates.

    The Pet Collective


    Because the non-profit rescue knew that disabled cats had a hard time getting adopted, they decided to help Thumper.

    First, Thumper needed to get stronger.

    The Pet Collective


    They created a special wheelchair for him, one that would help him build strength in his back legs. It wasnít long before he was taking his first steps.

    With the help of other therapy as well, the kitten was soon standing on his own.

    He was unsteady on his feet, but he was walking.

    The Pet Collective


    Even though he has quite the unique gait, he eventually got to the point where he was walking on his own.

    The Pet Collective


    Soon enough after his rehabilitation, Thumper was adopted into a loving home.

    The People and Cats Together (PACT) volunteers didnít have to work with Thumper as much as they did, but because of their efforts he can have a normal life. He could have died in the bushes, alone and disabled, but the rescue organization made sure that didnít happen.

    What a touching and uplifting story! God bless those wonderful people at PACT, and God bless Thumper and all who love him.

    I meant," said Ipslore bitterly, "what is there in this world that truly makes living worthwhile?"
    Death thought about it.
    "Cats," he said eventually. "Cats are nice."
