To help him get around, his foster dad commandeered some of his son's Lego, creating a wheelchair that allowed tiny Champ to play and interact with his littermates. Via: Cole And Marmalade.
Tiny black Champ was found hiding in a barn by a Canadian Woman
Please Note: we are not accepting any applications for Champ! We were contacted by a very nice lady who needed help with a seemingly injured kitten in her barn... when our volunteer first picked him up we were quite concerned, as you can see from the video the sweet kitten could only get around by dragging himself. We immediately had him vet checked and learned that this was a birth defect and not an injury so the good news is that there is no pain associated with his condition and besides that he got a clean bill of health and the vet said he was solid and strong for his age so.... everyone meet Champ... the video of him before and the video after a day or so in his amazing foster home. We are currently accepting donations to our medical fund in order to provide Champ and our other kitties with the vet care they need. Donations can be dropped off at Vogue Optical or etransfer to email@example.com **be warned, have the tissues ready! 😊Posted by CARMA Sussex, Cat Rescue Maritimes on Sunday, May 20, 2018
When this women saw that his back legs were injured, she contacted the local organization, CARMA Sussex, Cat Rescue Maritimes, and their volunteers rushed over to investigate. After a thorough exam, the vet confirmed that the young boy could only get around by dragging it's back legs due to a birth defect.
Champ was taken into foster care and a wheelchair was ordered for him. But since he is still too small to be fitted properly with the gear, his foster parents came up with a brilliant idea!

Champ was fitted with a small red sock to prevent any rubbing or chafing from the genius device. Now he can scoot around with his foster brothers and sisters like any other rambunctious kitten! "They just fell in love with him and accept him just the way he is," said Terry Peck, founder of CARMA, about the foster family. "Humans could learn a lot from animals."
