Paralyzed Kitten’s Face Lights Up When He Realizes He Can Feel Slight Tickle On His Foot

Cats have very resilient personalities.

They might often be labeled as unfriendly or mean, but that is because they’ve been mistreated in the past.

But, despite everything they’ve been through, most cats come out on top. I mean, who wouldn’t want to be a cat? They get to spend their days sleeping, eating, and playing with all of the feathers they can get their paws on!

When Flynt was first found by WhiskerStop, he was in pretty bad shape. He was partially paralyzed from a soft tissue injury that left his back legs and tailed practically useless.

Yet, his rescuers didn’t give up on him, and Flynt didn’t stop fighting.

And only one month later, he made incredible progress!

Maybe it’s because I have gotten love from disabled kitties in my life, but I think paralyzed animals — like Flynt and this other cat that spreads love at his local animal clinic — are like super cats!

“Sweet little Flynt was surrendered to us by a good Samaritan, who knew he needed help,” Kym McNulty, president of Whisker Stop, said to Love Meow. “Flynt, was unable to use his rear legs or tail. He was suspected to have suffered a soft tissue injury, leaving him a paraplegic.”

But the workers saw the fight in Flynt. After a lot of love, hard work, exercise, and dedication, Flynt made a breakthrough!

In a video posted by April Springer, Flynt can be seen realizing that he can feel in his legs! April decided to test Flynt to see how his senses were and found that he immediately perked up when she tickled his toes.

Flynt now has a rehab plan and will be available for adoption soon. He was fitted with a wheelchair to play, and after a couple of rough days complicated by his digestive system after being paralyzed, Flynt was back on his feet and running around in his wheelchair.
