To sаvе two nine-week-old kittens, Steph and Milena from Montreal, Canada, travelled for many hours. When they got there, they noticed that one of the kittens was moving around by crawling on her stomach since her back legs were splayed out to the sides.
Rescuers brought the kittens to the Chatons Orphelins Montréal headquarters, where the young sisters were given the names Naboo (red-white) and Quicksand (tricolor).
According to Celine Krom of Chatons Orphelins Montréal, “both newborns were emaciated, all covered in fleas, and had ear mites.”
“The Quicksand has what’s called swimmer’s syndrome, a malformation that causes her hind legs to flare out to the sides,” Celine adds.
The girl is forced to pull her hind legs behind her when moving. However, this does not stop her at all.
A strategy was presented to rectify the kitten’s mobility and to regain the strength and functionality of the hind legs following a medical evaluation.
Physical therapy can help her condition improve, and we’ll do everything we can to ensure she has the standard of living she deserves.
She can paddle in the water while receiving assistance from a physiotherapist during one of her activities in the pool. Many sessions were completed by Quicksand with brilliance, much to the cheers of volunteers and the supportive veterinary team.
The courageous infant keeps swimming in the water, strengthening her legs and getting them into the right posture.
“(In recent weeks) Quicksand’s hind legs have become very strong, they are already much stronger,” Selin shаrеs.
When Quicksand was strong enough to run on her hind legs, she began running around the room excitedly. Local cats were fascinated by the zealous runner and came to sniff their noses.
Quicksand’s sister, Naboo is her best support. She encourages Quicksand to play and try new toys, and falls asleep next to her.
Best friends have a comfortable home life where they don’t have to worry about food or security.
Because of her increased agility, Quicksand can now run and climb furniture likе any other kitten. She jumps, moves about frequently, and catches everything that is possible.
She has transformed into that rock climber who only ascends to the platform by leaping onto a cat tree and clutching a pole with all four hands likе a ninja.
The young woman never fails to wow her community with how much she can do and how far she has come.
Since Quicksand has been able to run and climb, she has not been herself before these activities, and breaks records in cat sports every day.
