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!
They used Lego’s to build Champ a custom sized mini set of wheels
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."
