Paralyzed Kitten, Mac N'Cheez, Gets Lego Wheelchair: Video
"A kitten that was found paralyzed and abandoned by its mother on the streets of New York was given a unique makeshift wheelchair by a local veterinarian.
According to Inside Edition, Massapequa Pet Vet staff gave the 5-week-old kitten the name Mac N`Cheez because it was brought to the shelter in a box of macaroni and cheese.
Sometimes I cull stories from the dark side of the Net, but sometimes I share stories that are universally loved. How can you not like a story that features a paralyzed kitten named Mac and Cheese scooting around in a wheelchair made out of Legos?
Hopefully the Lego wheelchair will only be a temporary expediency -- the presence of feeling in the kitty`s legs means he could walk again.
Eventually the cute critter will be available for adoption but for now he`s undergoing daily physical therapy. There are dozens of adorable kittens available for adoption at your local animal shelter.
