A small rescued feral kitten with no back legs has been able to walk for the first time after a charity had a kitten-sized wheelchair made for the tiny survivor. 

Cassidy the kitten was born to a feral mother and was discovered at around nine weeks of age, with his two hind legs missing and a series of health problems.

Bipawd #MiracleKitten Cassidy takes his first steps in his new wheelchair -- totally unassisted. Just amazing. <3This tiny feral kitten lost both back legs when he was born, and somehow managed to survive for nine weeks in the forest. It is a medical miracle that he survived even a day with such severe injuries, let alone nine weeks. His little body had just about given out from starvation and infection by the time we rescued him, but he never gave up! Thanks to the team at Mountain View Veterinary Hospital for giving Cassidy the chance he fought so hard for, and to Andrew at HandicappedPetsCanada.com for making the tiniest wheelchair he's ever made just so Cassidy wouldn't have to wait to feel the wind in his glorious floof.And our heartfelt thanks to those who have donated for Cassidy's medical expenses, sent supplies, made stump covers, shared posts and offered encouragement.... each of you has played a role in this tiny miracle!

“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,” a spokesperson from the Tiny Kittens Society wrote on its website.

The society rescues stray, feral, abandoned, unwanted and abused cats in Canada, and founder Shelly Roche has a theory as to how Cassidy managed to lose his legs.

“This is somewhat grisly, but we suspect his mom may have accidentally chewed them off when she was trying to detach his umbilical cord at birth,” she told The Huffington Post.

Now that Roche and the rest of the Tiny Kittens Society have managed to nurse Cassidy back to health, the organisation set about getting his means of transport fixed, which meant getting the smallest wheelchair ever made by HandicappedPetsCanada constructed for the kitten.

The wheelchair worked and the Tiny Kitten Society posted a video of Cassidy’s first unaided steps on Facebook to celebrate.
