The kitten with distinctive bent limbs and mismatched ears discovers affection and playfulness in its fearless, adaptive movements.
A kitten with bent front legs was sent to the Friends for Life Rescue Network in Los Angeles in early April
She was born with crooked paws due to injured ligaments and tendons in her front wrists,” explains Jacqueline DeAmore, the organization’s founder.
Maeve Lamprey and her husband, Zen, volunteered to help with overexpressed energy. Playfully, the fluffy baby began flipping with her front paws, engaging with her foster parents and seeking their attention right away.
Physically, there was a struggle many times a day to help her grow her paws.
The treatment went well. Her wrists are warmed up with a heating pad, then massaged and stretched to loosen the tendons and ligaments. This should help the growing bones form properly,” Jacqueline explains.
The kitten will soon be given weekly splints to increase the range of motion. All these challenges of fate do not bother her at all. She doesn’t seem to think she’s any different from the rest of her brethren.
Spoil loves his foster family and is the head of the house for hugs. He’s a goofy, curious, sweet daddy’s girl. She loves her dad very much and wraps her little fingers around him,” says Maeve, referring to Zen as Spoil’s dad.
“He always swoops down on her after a session of physiotherapy and hugs her heartily.” The fluffy creature enjoys flicking and exploring new places. She, like many kittens, enjoys exploring the area around her and hears her curiosity.
Spoil takes advantage of any opportunity to spend more time with his foster parents. Observing their behavior, she addresses them in a raspy voice and responds to their gestures and reassures them to tolerate her antics.
She is very loving and spends most of her time on the neck of her foster dad – this is her favorite “bed.”
After each meal, she certainly needs to be stroked and wrapped in a towel – so she is ready to fall asleep, purring in the hands of a person.
Maeve and Zen also had an adopted son named Chester, whom they affectionately referred to as “bed brother.” After he was diagnosed with a dangerous illness, the red-haired boy came over to get to know the new family member.
Chester hesitantly approached Spoil, as if this was the moment they had been waiting for. They grew enamored with each other, and Spoil adored spending time with him. He cleans her fur and attends to all of her other requirements.
Spoil’s kid has enormous energy. She weighed only 340 grams when she got into foster care. Now she is a bright and affectionate young lady.

Spoil just experienced her first Easter with her foster family, who lavished her with love and care.
