Paralyzed Kitten Finds Mobility and a Home Thanks to Brandon’s Pet Rescue Group


A Brandon pet rescue group not only helped a paralyzed 7-month-old kitten regain mobility, they also found a forever home for him and his brother.

Just a few weeks old, Nutmeg, a male kitten, was found with injuries leading to paralysis in both of his hind legs. Unable to walk, he was forced to drag himself with his two front legs.

A Kitten Place in Brandon saved him and his brother, Sage. They contacted Walkin’ Pets, a company that makes mobility devices for older and disabled pets.

A Kitten Place “wanted to provide Nutmeg with the help he needed to lead a more active and independent life,” said Jennifer Pratt of Walkin’ Pets.

Walkin’ Pets donated a rear wheelchair to help Nutmeg regain his mobility.

Then they took it a step further and connected A Kitten Place with a Massachusetts couple who wanted to adopt Nutmeg and Sage together.

A Kitten Place flew the two kittens from Florida to Massachusetts, where they met their new family for the first time.

“He’s already acclimating and adjusting to the chair, and I think it’s going to be a great journey for him,” said Sam Franciosa, Nutmeg’s new owner. “Vets are optimistic that with the help of wheels, laser therapy and acupuncture, Nutmeg will one day regain his mobility.”
