Kitten with Wobbly Gait Found Alone as Stray Lets Nothing Slow Him Down

A 4-week-old kitten was brought to a city shelter in Los Angeles after he was found alone as a stray. He was a bit wobbly but very strong-willed. A shelter employee saw the fight in him and stepped in to foster him.

A few weeks later, volunteers of Lange Foundation, a local animal rescue, met the little guy at the shelter. They were instantly smitten, and offered to take him on so he could have the best chance at life.

The kitten whom they named Eddie, didn’t let anything stop him from loving life. “The shelter found that he was able to do everything normally, but had some stability issues,” Lange Foundation shared with Love Meow.

Eddie likes to scamper around the room and pounce on anything that moves — he doesn’t think he is any different. “He has cerebellar hypoplasia, which causes him to fall over, and likely has hydrocephalus, which is why his head is larger than average.”

Despite it all, he is always in good spirits and strives to do everything just like any other kitten.

“We took him to the neurologist for his wobble and he also had surgery for a prolapsed rectum,” the rescue told Love Meow. “His cerebellar hypoplasia does not shorten his life expectancy. It just causes him to be unsteady on his feet and wobbly.”

Eddie got right back on his paws after surgery and started to play. Even the Cone of Shame couldn’t slow him down.

“Eddie has not let these issues hold him back. He is a playful, funny, and sweet boy,” Lange Foundation shared with Love Meow.

“He loves to wrestle with cats and any dog who will let him. His instability can make using the litter box a challenge, but with a high sided box, he is doing great.”
