Tumbelina isn’t going to let something like not being able to walk slow her down. She has too much energy and is too excited for life to sit back and give up. Luckily for this vibrant and adorable little kitten, some caring people at Valley Cats Inc. rescue stepped up to help her.

Tumbelina was at risk of being euthanized at a shelter because she suffers from cerebellar hypoplasia, an unusual condition that makes it impossible for her to walk on her own. Her rescuers compare her to Steven Hawkings; a brilliant mind trapped in a body that can’t keep up.

But things are about to change for this little cat, she is getting outfitted for her very own wheelchair. The four-wheel buggy will allow her to propel herself forward without the help and support of her caregivers.

The next step for this adorable little kitten is to find a home! Tumbelina is currently looking for her forever home through Valley Cats Inc. and Petopia Animal Rescue. To learn more about Tumbelina and her adoption process, visit the Valley Cats Inc. website here.

Good luck Tumbelina! We hope you find an amazing home.

We first want to thank everyone who wanted to give this little kitten a home, and there were many of you out there. It should give all rescuers a great feeling to know that such warm-hearted people are out there, ready to give a home to a special-needs animal.

Tumbalina now has a home with another special needs cerebellar hypoplasia cat who is also blind. She has a family ready to give her lots of time, patience, and any therapy she needs. We here at Valley Cats/Petopia will miss her very much, but we realize that she will also get the love and care she deserves 24/7. Tumbles proved to be a survivor and we know she will do well in the future.

Tumbles had a wonderful, dedicated foster mom and dad since her rescue from the shelter, and there are not enough words to thank them for their time, love and efforts to keep Tumbles clean and well-fed.
