    "Her spine, tail, and leg bones were formed this way while she was still in the womb," said Dannielle. Amazingly, this kitten, named Minerva or Minnie for short, doesn't let anything slow her down. She is determined to play and move around, which was the case from the very start. She is small for her age, but she is a fierce warrior at heart and always seems to be happy.

    "This girl is a lover! (The other night), she sat on my lap purring away, playing, and enjoying life to the fullest," Dannielle added. "She is also a pro at scooting around and she's very fast." She's curious, loves her foster mom, and constantly wants to know what her foster mom is doing, insisting to be around her all the time - even during bathroom breaks.

    And Dannielle, being a pawsome foster mom, actually set up a nest in the shower to keep Minnie safe and comfortable while supervising her surroundings. Of course, Minnie being as brave as she is, didn't need her little perch, instead climbing out of it so she could be up close and personal with her foster mom.

    It took several vet visits and plenty of TLC, but Minnie's stomach issues have been resolved, and she is feeling much, much better. A few days after being rescued, she has gotten more playful than ever. She's exploring everything, excited about her new freedom and not letting her limitations slow her down. In just one week, she has made incredible strides.

    "She is a happy, mobile, and active kitten who has zero idea that she is 'different'," Dannielle said. "She purrs and meows as soon as I get close to her. Her new favorite toy is these kitten springs. She's obsessed." She likes to catch invisible bugs, hop around, and climb over basically everything.

    "We're working out her consistency and medication schedule, as well as seeing just how much feeling and use she has in her back legs," Dannielle added. "My aim, as her foster mom, is to get her to her healthiest and then set Minnie up with the best chance at the best life."
