Cassidy, aka #Miraclekitten is an adorable kitten who lost his hind legs shortly after birth.
He was born to a feral mom and almost died in the first two months of his life before he was rescued by the TinyKittens Society, an animal rescue group in Langley, British Columbia.
The owner of TinyKittens, Shelly Roche, told The Huffington Post that the kitten’s legs were quite possibly chewed off by his mother when she was trying to detach his umbilical cord at birth.
“By the time he was rescued, he had nearly starved to death and his depleted body had stopped fighting a horrific E. Coli infection in both stumps,” the group said on its Facebook page.
But this little kitten is a fighter, and he was determined not to give up.
Before long, Cassidy started regaining his strength, and Handicapped Pets Canada, a company that helps animals with disabilities, made Cassidy a tiny wheelchair to help him be fully independent and able to walk on his own.
Just last week, Cassidy took his first walk by himself, and he was triumphant.

We have to thank TinyKittens for giving this little guy a chance at life, because he deserves one.
