No one should ever say the word ‘never’!
Some believed that Tallyrand the kitten would never walk again. She and her saviors over at Humane Rescue Alliance proved them wrong.
According to wusa9.com, Tallyrand was first discovered abandoned in a Washington storm drain when she was just two months old. She was immediately brought into the Humane Rescue Alliance, where vets quickly realized that the kitten had a broken back, which caused paralysis in her back legs and tail.
This particular diagnosis wasn’t a bookend for the rescue, just an obstacle. After discovering the full extent of the kitten’s injuries, the group went to work healing Tallyrand.
Among her recovery treatments include regular acupuncture sessions, which, after only a month, led to serious improvements — Tallyrand began to wiggle her tail and back legs and is holding herself up without help.
For a kitten that could once barely lift her own head a few weeks ago, this was an astounding achievement.
Tallyrand and her entire team didn’t stop there. Now, after some continued treatments, the kitten can walk and run on her own. These literal and figurative strides signify that Tallyrand will soon be put up for adoption. The rescue will hopefully match this little fighter with a forever family that is willing to continue Tallyrand’s treatment and physical therapy.
