Cassidy, Miracle Kitten, Wheelchair

Tiny Kittens Society

Hey, remember when Kim Davis played "Eye of the Tiger" during her rally and the Internet officially declared it dead?

Well, good news, everyone! We got the song back and it's all thanks to Cassidy, this tiny, brave, 2-legged kitten! We did it!

Cassidy is a miracle kitten that was saved by the Canada-based rescue group Tiny Kittens Society. He was found with both back legs missing, possibly because his mother accidentally chewed them off after he was born. Cassidy managed to survive with his injuries for nine whole weeks, and then Tiny Kittens rescued him from a feral cat colony in British Columbia.

"It is a medical miracle that he survived even a day with such severe injuries, let alone nine weeks," they wrote on their Facebook page. "His little body had just about given out from starvation and infection by the time we rescued him, but he never gave up!"

After bringing his health back up, the next step was to provide some mobility for Cassidy. With the help of the engineers at Handicapped Pets Canada and a 3-D printer, they were able to give Cassidy his very own wheelchair.

Bipawd #MiracleKitten Cassidy takes his first steps in his new wheelchair -- totally unassisted. Just amazing. <3This 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! Thanks to the team at Mountain View Veterinary Hospital for giving Cassidy the chance he fought so hard for, and to Andrew at HandicappedPetsCanada.com for making the tiniest wheelchair he's ever made just so Cassidy wouldn't have to wait to feel the wind in his glorious floof.And our heartfelt thanks to those who have donated for Cassidy's medical expenses, sent supplies, made stump covers, shared posts and offered encouragement.... each of you has played a role in this tiny miracle!

In the video of Cassidy taking his first steps with the wheelchair, you can see how quickly and enthusiastically the little miracle kitten adapts to his new wheels. And thanks to the usage of "Eye of the Tiger" in the video, we'll no longer associate that song with a bigoted woman trying to spread her hateful message. We'll think of Cassidy, wheeling along like the survivor he is!

You can watch livestream of Cassidy's progress and find out more about the rescue group at Tiny Kittens website.
