Tashi, the Paraplegic Cat (and YouTube Star) Finds a Home (VIDEO)

Tashi, the Paraplegic Cat (and YouTube Star) Finds a Home (VIDEO)

In November 2008, Tashi, a once-stray paraplegic cat was brought to Tabby’s Place, a cat sanctuary in central New Jersey, after a group caring for a feral colony in Ohio found him as a kitten — paralyzed, incontinent and asthmatic. Thanks to online videos of his progress doing physical therapy, he has quickly become a bit of a sensation on YouTube and gathered national television exposure by being featured on the “CBS Evening News.”

Now, NJ.com reports that Tashi has now found permanent home — he’s been adopted by the Weidner family from Horsham, Pa.

Rori Weidner continues to make sure that Tashi carries out his daily exercise routine in his new home. “Little by little, he comes around a little bit more,” she said. “If he could regain some use of his back leg, that would be great, but if not we love him no matter what. … It doesn’t feel like extra work because they give you love and affection in return.”

Here’s one of Tashi’s many adorable videos, showing him trying to walk so he can play with a baby goat. To see more adoptable cats, visit tabbysplace.org.
