Hedgehog Bets The Odds, Walks Again Thanks to Wheelchair Made From Legos
Chappi the hedgehog, never backed down from a struggle, so it was no different when she was diagnosed with Wobbly Hedgehog Syndrome. She pushed though, on her homemade wheelchair, made out of legos!
Who is Chappi?
According to Laughing Squid, the Mexico-based hedgehog was diagnosed with Wobbly Hedgehog Syndrome, a progressive neurological disorder that makes it hard for hedgehogs to walk. Chappi did her absolute best to stay active. But, as time went on it eventually got to a point where she could longer walk on her own. Chappi's human mom knew her beloved pet was a fighter, so she came up with a plan.
"As you know, my little girl can't walk anymore, she is just too weak. We could see that she could move her little feet, so I decided to try making a wheelchair," Chappi's owner wrote on Instagram.
After countless trials and errors, Chappi's mom found a pretty unconventional method. She found that Legos were a cheap and easy-to-use option when it came to hedgehog wheelchair construction. A few more tries and some assembling and walla! Chappi had a new set of wheels.
As the above video shows, Chappi's mom's creative thinking has come in handy and is helping Chappi move around on her own once again. "She's getting used to the chair, after almost 3 moths without walking. She's a little fighter," Chappi's owner wrote on Instagram.
This just goes to show people that with a fighting spirit anything can be possible! You go Chappi!
