Kittens with special needs find forever home in time for holidays

HOPKINTON, MASS. (WHDH) - A pair of kittens with special needs both found a forever home in time for the holidays.

Frankie was missing a back leg at birth and Boomer was born with shortened back legs, according to the Baypath Humane Society of Hopkinton. The kittens were said to be wrapped up in their mother’s umbilical cord at the time of birth, resulting in complications according to the Baypath Humane Society of Hopkinton.

The kittens were later surrendered by a family who wanted to make sure they got the care they needed.

Despite the disabilities, the kittens are still able to chase, wrestle, climb, and jump with the best of them.

A dedicated foster family cared for the kittens while Baypath searched for a forever home.

The kittens have since been taken in by a loving woman in Agawam and they got to spend Christmas together.

“They haven’t stopped playing since I got them,” the new owner said.

Bucklow has two other disabled cats and says she actively seeks out special needs adoptions.
