Meet Raven! She’s a sassy little foster kitten that has boundless energy. Sadly, she no longer has the use of her back legs but when Marlena, a foster parent since 2010, spotted her on Instagram she decided to take the kitten on and see what she could do to help her, even though her previous humans had surrendered her to animal control rather than seek help.
When they both arrived home Marlena realized that Raven was a lot smaller than she first thought and took her to the vet to see what could be done. After a ten minute consultation, the vet said that Raven was fully paralyzed and recommended euthanasia. Marlena was mortified as the vet explained that cats such as Raven have no quality if life. Marlena had faith and refused to accept this so asked the vet what she needed to do as there was no way that feisty little kitten was being put to sleep. She knew that Raven’s life was only just beginning. In this delightful video, we see that Raven’s quality of life is just like any other kitten. It’s true that she needs more care and attention compared to other kittens of the same age but it’s worth it just to see how much she enjoys her life. Raven doesn’t let her disability get in the way and probably doesn’t even realize that she’s a bit different from her other kitty friends.
