This cat who overcame a serious illness is now taking the internet by storm.
Four years ago, Kevin the Russian Blue cat was only four weeks old when he was found languishing in a car park and brought to a vet clinic. Unlike other kittens, Kevin was not normal. He had a serious condition known as hydrocephalus (fluid on the brain) that made him look distinctively and permanently surprised.
With this serious condition that partially impacts sight, hearing and brain function; nobody including the vets believed he’d survive. The biggest concern was that the condition would cause seizures, but Kevin has never had one. He’s strictly an indoor cat and has an enclosed balcony with a castle and toys to keep him busy.
According to his owner Tailah, who is a vet nurse; “Kev is a special character. I fell in love with him straight away when he was brought to our clinic by a lovely lady who found him abandoned in a car park.” “I was warned that he would be very lucky to live for six months. However, I had a feeling that he was going to be a miracle kitten and gave him a chance,” she adds.
In defying all odds, here we are four years later wishing Kev a happy 4th birthday! He’s now taking the internet by storm with his permanently adorable surprised expression.
