Kitten With Paralysis & Unable To Walk Gets His First Wheelchair

Everyone, meet Tiny Tim–a kitten who just got his first 3D-printed wheelchair.

Tiny Tim and his siblings were rescued from an animal shelter in South Carolina by the Friends of HCACC, a rescue group who save abandoned, abused, and unwanted animals. The rescuers then noticed that one kitten, Tiny Tim, was paralyzed from the hips down. And because of his condition, he couldn’t walk.

Tiny Tim’s rescuers want to help him walk. So they contacted a group of experimental tech creators called SubProto to make a custom wheelchair for the tiny kitty.
