Life for Ned

Lake Norman Humane in Mooresville NC has a litter of 4 kittens One of the kittens, Little Ned, was born with a version of Manx syndrome. He is tailless, hops like a bunny, and is partially incontinent. He's also playful, happy, obsessed with food and cuddles, and a lightning-fast runner.

There's very little research around this disease, and as a result most kittens like Ned are euthanized. There are often challenges as they grow, but with special owners, many also go on to live happy lives. The rescue and their veterinary team are not as confident in the quaility of his life. We all know what that means. 

There a numserous rescues with experience with special needs kitties including Manx syndrome ready to step up and give this baby a chance. They are contacting Lake Norman Humane with no response. They are ready to tag, pull and transport this sweet baby immediately.

There are also experienced individuals ready to give this boy a furever home. Both options provide him all the needed vet care, love and happiness this furbaby could possibly have .

Many people have messaged the Lake Norman Humane through messanger on Facebook and are receiving a auto prepared response concerning Ned. others have reached out through posting on their Facebook page. Some comments are being deleted. 

Hopefully Lake Norman Humane will find the perfect future home for Ned at one of these facilities, where all his special needs will be met. Even in the past few days, he's been showing improvement. With the right home, he'll have even more opportunity to thrive! #tinybutmighty
