Mews and Nips: Special Needs Kitten Is Proof That Every Life Deserves a Chance


A very special rescue cat named Kevin is capturing hearts around the world with his permanently surprised look on his face. Kevin, a 4-year-old Russian Blue, was brought into his guardian’s clinic when he was four weeks old after he was found in a parking lot. He was diagnosed with hydrocephalus (fluid on the brain.) His sight, hearing, balance, coordination and reflexes are all impaired. His guardian hopes Kevin’s story can prove to people that every little life deserves a chance. “I was well educated from my colleagues on Kevin’s condition and fully understood to expect the worst,” she told Mashable. “But given how happy and content he was, I wanted to give him a chance.” Read the full story on Mashable.

    This is a wonderful story. I have a friend who who has rescued many special needs cats. She has lost several over the years, but right now she has two diaper babies, one was shot in the back and her back half is paralyzed and the other was born with no pelvis bone. They both live good lives despite not being able to potty on their own. And they get around really well just with their front feet. The other one she has is a CH kitty. None of these cats know they are any different than the others. She recently lost one that had Manx syndrome. He had no control over his bowels or bladder and he had to wear a diaper too. She is a huge inspiration and has a huge heart and taught me a lot of these special needs cats. All lives are important.
