No One Wanted This Kitten But One Kind Soul Took Him In

Zeke is too gosh-darned cute to handle.

The tiny tuxedo kitten has a disorder commonly referred to as "water on the brain," which causes a build up of cerebral spinal fluid in his brain. Zeke has a blockage which prevents the fluid from draining properly, which results in him having a different appearance. He also had some skeletal disorders and two twisted legs.

This made Zeke very unlikely to be adopted.

When Lisa Jones heard about Zeke and his story, she arranged for him to fly from Texas to New York. She worked for Super Heros Animals Hydrocephalus Society and knew she had to do something.

When Zeke got to New York, he was just 14oz. But that didn't stop the little guy from getting around! He had figured out how to either hop around or walk on his elbows

According to Lisa, Zeke definitely knows how to get himself into trouble! He's a smart kitty and already responds to his name. Lisa says that Zeke sometimes gets frustrated when he can't get his legs to work, but he just naps and it's all fine.

Lisa has another cat name Super Hero, who also had hydrocephalus like Zeke. The two have become best friends and now Zeke has someone to look up to!

We're so happy Zeke has a new home, and we can't wait to see how he progresses!
