There’s been a lot of frustrating things in the news lately, so here’s a story sure to warm your heart.

People And Cats Together (PACT), a non-profit rescue group in California, rescued nine kittens who were dumped in the bushes. One kitten, Thumper, was struggling to walk, his back legs giving out and dragging along the ground. Thumper wanted so badly to play with the other kittens, but as hard as he tried, he just couldn’t keep up. When the veterinarian diagnosed Thumper with an incurable neurological disorder, members of PACT refused to give up on the kitten. They put their minds together and came up with a special walker to strengthen Thumper’s back legs. Get your tissues ready and watch this video of Thumper’s amazing progress.

Now Thumper is running and jumping to his heart’s content, playing and enjoying life with his foster mom. If you’re in southern California and interested in adopting Thumper, check out his PetFinder profile for more information.
