A kitten who desperately needed help found it from a volunteer foster mother.
An emaciated, sickly and paralyzed kitten in need of help found a foster mother. She took care of him and accompanied him until his adoption.
Archie was “small and scared,” Caroline Grace, founder of Baby Kitten Rescue California, said of the kitten who helped turn the corner and grow up.
The little kitten was only 5 weeks old at the time. He was not in the best of health, as explained by his adoptive mother in Los Angeles. He was dehydrated, covered in fleas.
She dewormed him, cleansed and dehydrated him. Then it was necessary to help him gain weight and trust him.
As he began to move, Caroline Grace noticed that he had problems with his hind legs. She also discovered that he used the tray instinctively, without training.
The next day, the kitten was examined by a veterinarian. Examinations and x-rays helped to establish the cause of his paralysis, a congenital defect of the spine. A care program was immediately implemented, including physical therapy sessions, exercises and acupuncture.
According to Caroline Grace, throughout the process, the young cat showed remarkable determination.
