A strong kitten who was unable to walk completely recovered with the help of a kind couple. The tabby kitten ended up in a shelter in Central Valley, California, and had to be rescued. She was homeless with a broken pelvis. Despite the fact that the kitten could not walk, he decided to change it.
On the second day at the shelter, the brave kitten began to lift its rump, showing so much fights in this tiny body. Amber Rose, founder of Saving Grace Rescue, contacted Tabby and immediately offered to pick her up. “She ended up in a shelter with a paralyzed butt and incontinence, but she was making more progress every day,” said Amber of Love Meow.
Joyce, a foster assistant at Saving Grace Rescue, welcomed the kitten to her loving home. She was still very shaky, but full of impetus and impudence. They cured her of fleas and gave her a safe and comfortable nest to rest and heal. The kitten was affectionately named Tilly, which means “strong in battle”.
After a good night’s sleep with the foster family, Tilly woke up with renewed energy and a great voice. In the blink of an eye, she made her foster father hug his tiny paw and hug him on demand. She looked at him with her gentle gaze and hugged him for hours until she fell asleep deeply.
With a dedicated foster family ready to meet her needs, Tilly started gaining weight and gaining strength in her legs. She worked on her hind legs and practiced walking daily while her foster parents cheered on her. Over the next few weeks, Tilly’s pace became more steady and her gait more powerful. The first time she picked up speed and ran, everyone was very proud of her.
The kitten recovered. She gained the mobility of her hind legs and turned into a restless tyrant. She can keep up with the bigger kittens around the house and stay in control every time she plays.
With her strong health and increased range of motion, Tilly began to use the litter box on her own. She enjoys spending time with other students and being their annoying little sister. “When Tilly first came to us, she couldn’t even walk. Now she can run and chase her adopted siblings Keso and Toebe. He will make friends with everyone here. She’s sweet and adventurous, ”said Joyce Love Meow.
Despite the difficult start in life, Tilly did not lose hope and lived life to the fullest every day. She decided to use her hind legs and did just that. A month after she is rescued, she thrives and does all kinds of pranks around the house. This stubborn girl never gets bored.
