Animals have an incredible capacity to be resilient. With the help of compassionate humans who are working to develop prosthetic technologies and physical therapy systems, there is nothing that can stop a determined animal from overcoming their disability and bouncing back into a life full of running, jumping, and playing.

Don’t believe me? Just check out this story of Joy the dog who learned to walk on two legs. The story of this little kitty is just as brilliant and inspiring. Born with a disability, this little cat could not even walk at 8 weeks, but with the help of his guardians a mere 10 weeks later, he was up and running…literally.

Watch this amazing transformation submitted by Imgur user ArcticNova.

Our story starts with a vibrant kitty determined to enjoy life, despite his inability to walk


Two weeks later, he was outfitted with a set of wheels to help him strengthen his muscles


By week twelve, he was adventuring out wheels off.

“Later training wheels!”

At 15 weeks, his confidence was growing.

“Free access to treats! Score!”

And voila! By week eighteen, he was zooming around as if he had never even needed wheels in his life.

“Oh, you can’t catch me!”
