Vivi

Special Needs Cat

Vivi is a fast-growing kitten who came to us hissing and scratching. Having a disability at such a young age must have taught her to be distrustful and defensive.

Her hind legs are paralyzed and the condition may have been inborn. She appears to be incontinent as well. Having a cat who makes a mess around the house is not ideal, but we didn’t want to confine her in a cage.

We manage her condition by expressing her bladder and stimulating her anus twice a day. She put up a heck of a fight at first, but she has gotten used to it. Not only that, she has turned into a cuddlebug as well!

Rescue Story

Vivi lived in a condo parking lot with several other homeless cats. A resident who feeds them saw little Vivi cowering in a corner. Knowing that a parking lot is not a safe place for such a tiny kitten with a disability, her rescuer decided to foster and have her checked by a vet. We didn’t hesitate to take her in when we heard about her, and now she’s thriving along with her new big bro Parker who has the same condition as hers.
