10 Adorable Animals in Wheelchairscountdown
Animals in wheelchairs: How can you not love 'em! While it is sad that many animals struggle to get around due to different injuries and physical disabilities, it's wonderful to know that there are different contraptions that allow them to live happier and more mobile lives. Take a look at these 10 super-adorable animals, each with a different but equally adorable story to tell. We love these videos, and we hope you do, too.
How cute is Lily the bunny? She's exceptionally cute! She also rocks an adorable blue wheelchair that goes great with her medium-gray fur. Lily gets around easily thanks to her hoppin' wheels, and we love it. We hope that more bunnies with mobility difficulties are blessed with the use of a wheelchair. Look at how happy Lily is!
Where can we find a piglet just like this little guy? His name is genius, too. Mr. Chris P. Bacon, you're too cute for words. This little fella is only 10 days old in this video. Pigs are known to be very intelligent, so it comes as no surprise that Chris P. is a natural with his wheelchair made from toy parts. Although he looks perfectly piggy precious in this video, he did eventually outgrow his little wheelchair … which means he got a bigger, better wheelchair. How about a few oinks for this cutie pie?
This is quite an amazing story. Flipper is a gorgeous kitty who suffered a spinal injury, making walking difficult for him. However, kind high school students in a robotics class used Flipper's disability as the perfect opportunity to build him a wonderful walking device. Flipper is now able to get around more easily, and has a ton of high school human friends to adore him. Yay!
Joe the bunny was found abandoned, weak and dehydrated with his brother in a backyard. Soon after being rescued, it became apparent that Joe was born a paraplegic. Very sad, but the story gets better. With a little help from a friend, Joe was built a tiny wheelchair for his tiny self. Now, he is able to be (almost) like all the other bunnies, moving about and playing. We love Joe!
Amelio, a gorgeous powderpuff cat, was born with a deformed pelvis. Amelio has much difficulty walking, so he uses a cart with wheels from Eddie's Wheels. With his cart, he is able to play with other cats and be "normal." At first, it took some getting used to. Now, Amelio is very comfortable in his cart and adept at using it.
This beautiful goldfish has trouble maintaining buoyancy on her own, so her compassionate owner made her a sling that prevents the little fishy from lying at the bottom of the tank all day. How wonderful that there are people out there that are willing to go out of their way to help the smallest of creatures. Awesome!
Popeye the dog was adopted from a Taiwanese animal rescue. He does not have his hind legs, so walking like an average dog would be impossible. After being given a wheelchair, however, Popeye looks happier than ever! Just watch him make his way down the sidewalk like a champ.
Denali, an 80-pound Golden Retriever mix, is finally getting the exercise she desperately needed, thanks to this wonderful wheelchair from Walkin' Wheels. She lost the use of her back legs, so this 10-year-old beauty is now able to get around like all the other dogs. She took to the wheelchair immediately, and was walking around very easily. Yay, Denali!
Watch as Blueberry the bunny easily gets around, thanks to her awesome wheelchair. Andy Blau from Toronto designed this wheelchair for Blueberry, who has rear-leg paralysis and was unable to hop around. Blueberry, you're awesome. Keep up the good work!
Charity the Chihuahua suffered a spinal break when she was a stray. She had a greast deal of difficulty walking, but wanted to be like the other dogs at the park. Now, Charity has been adopted by a wonderful family in Seattle, Wash., and has her very own little wheelchair. Look at her play with the other dogs at the park. We're sure it doesn't even phase her that she uses a wheelchair. We love happy endings like these. Put your paws up for awesome animals like these, who get by just fine with their awesome wheelchairs!
