A four-month-old paraplegic kitten was given a new lease of life by employees of an animal shelter in Charlottesville, Virginia, after they built him a cart.
Called Paddington, the kitten was surrendered to the Charlottesville Albemarle SPCA. Upon inspection, the shelter’s veterinary team determined he was in a “generally healthy” condition despite not having the use of his hind limbs.
Charlottesville Albemarle SPCA clinic technicians built Paddington a small cart fashioned out of a plastic dog muzzle and wheels from a broken kitten tower.
“Paddington was born to be wild, but it’s hard for him to get time on his wheels because people never want to put this snuggly kitten down,” Charlottesville Albemarle SPCA said. Credit: Charlottesville Albemarle SPCA via Storyful
