Little Chloe was just six weeks old when her human parents adopted her. No one knows exactly what happened to her before that, but they know it must have been traumatic.
Her tiny back legs were paralyzed from suspected abuse - her back had been broken some time before.
The veterinarians took one look at the damage done to her and were absolutely certain that she would never walk again. But this brave kitten and her new human parents believed differently.
Hanna Shaw, also known as Kitten X Lady on Instagram shared her story with followers. Although she had originally gone to the shelter for a different 2 week old orphan, she ended up bringing little Chloe home too!
“Tonight we rescued a kitten with rear leg paralysis from suspected abuse. She is so sweet and so vulnerable; we absolutely could not say no to her,” wrote Shaw.
"I don’t yet know what will happen, but I do know this: now that she’s here, no one will ever lay a cruel hand on her again. She will be loved, she will be fluffy and clean, and she will be given the best chance I can give her at regaining mobility.”
