They found him in their back yard, there seemed to be something wrong with his back legs so they called for help!
A kitten was found starving in a backyard in Ridgewood, Queens, New York last summer. His legs appeared to be constricted.
When they found the frail kitten in Ridgewood, Queens, New York the residents contacted Jacqueline, a TNR (trap-neuter-return) rescuer, for assistance. Upon arriving at the scene Jacqueline found he suffered from a congenital condition that created a deformity in his hind legs.
It was clear he hadn’t had a meal in a while, he was so frail, though with a little encouragement he began to eat. Now in a home environment, with some food inside him, he began to perk up.
He was just six weeks old and weighed less than a pound, but what he might lack in size, he more than made up with his delightful personality. Rolling over and purring like a well-oiled engine any time Jacqueline was near.
Soon he was taken in by Fuzzy Butt Rescue And TNR, a rescue group in New York City. Their role was to find the little kitten a foster home that would provide around the clock care and much needed physical therapy to help with his legs.
Dina, a volunteer with the group was called upon and stepped in to help. Once she saw his pictures it was love at first sight. The friendly little feline was an instant hit with his new family and quickly settled in, exploring his new home with what use he still had from his hind legs.
