Paralyzed Kitten Is Expected To Walk Again


A paralyzed kitten was put on death row, but later saved and now is expected to walk again thanks to the people who fought for him to live and didn’t give up on him.

Tenth Life writes: A paralyzed kitten who, we’re quite convinced, will walk again soon. This little darling is named Jefferson, another sweet kitten with rear-leg paralysis who has come to the loving arms of Tenth Life. Seriously injured when caught in a closing door, the four-week-old kitty suffered pulmonary and spinal bruising. His human took him to the clinic for care, and, upon learning the high cost of saving him compared with her own finances, reluctantly and with a broken heart, elected to euthanize him. However, a kind-hearted veterinary technician at the clinic was unable to bear the idea of this tiny guy losing his life.

She was familiar with our miracle kitty Lincoln’s success of overcoming paralysis, and with hope, she stepped in to save little Jefferson. The compassionate tech then reached out to Lincoln’s mama, Bobbi, to see if she could help. And when Bobbi asked us if the little guy could be a Tenth Life kitty, the answer was immediately and unequivocally “yes!”

Jefferson saw one of our specialist veterinarians yesterday, and she felt he had a very good chance of regaining the use of his hind legs. So, physical therapy has begun! Bobbi is using the same exercises she did for Lincoln one year ago, and we’re hopeful that he’ll be back on his feet soon.

Little Jefferson is paralyzed in his rear legs…
