MASSAPEQUA, N.Y. (CBSNewYork)– An abandoned kitten was able to get moving for the first time with the help of some vets and a make-shift wheelchair.

Little Mac was brought to Massapequa Pet Vet by a good Samaritan after he was found abandoned by his mother and unable to walk.

The doctors and staff managed to dig through some old toys and make Mac his very own wheelchair to allow him to run for the first time.

Although he is still unable to move his two hind legs, vets said Mac has feeling in his hind end which is a positive sign. Vets hope the little guy will rehabilitate and eventually be placed in a loving home.

“We love this little guy and can’t wait to see what the future holds for him,” Massapequa Pet Vet said.

Mac is part of Long Island Wildlife and Animal Rescue.
