Chloe was a kitten that had been abused so badly, her hind legs no longer worked. The shelter picked up two orphaned kittens and were devastated to find the Chloe would most likely never be able to move again.
We rescued a kitten with rear leg paralysis from suspected abuse. She is so sweet and so vulnerable; we absolutely could not say no to her,” said Hannah of Kitten Lady, a woman who is dedicated to helping cats.
She took home three kittens that day to help in any way that she could.After a while, the injured kitten began to come out of her shell, slowly starting to trust and love. After a trip to the vet, it was confirmed that Chloe had suffered from a broken back but still had feeling in her toes and legs. While Chloe is no longer in any pain, she can’t use the back half of her body. That means her legs, tail, and even her bladder aren’t able to be controlled.
The prognosis wasn’t good – Chloe had little to no chance of ever recovering.
I’m going to take it day by day–I’m not going to give up, I will try alternate therapies, I will work on creating a set-up that supports her mobility, and I will focus on the positives: she is happy, she is alive, she is loved.” Hannah said.
She voiced her optimism, and one of her fans suggested giving the kitten a box that could slide around on the hardwood floor…
Chloe was excited to be able to move! She is now receiving many different forms of treatment, and after a round of acupuncture?
She began to kick her legs, move her tail, and even stand up. This is incredible. This is just a very small victory on a long road, but we now are looking ahead with more optimism than ever.”
There is hope!
