These special orphaned babies were spotted on the street in North Carolina, USA. Kind-hearted locals immediately noticed that both babies had severely deformed legs, could not move around properly, and looked very unhealthy and vulnerable. They were reported to the local animal rescue and the caring staff took care of them immediately. Indeed, the babies' condition was critical.

In addition to missing limbs, the kittens had infected eyes, upper respiratory infections, and terrible stomach problems. Volunteers immediately started treating them, and when the kittens got better, Caroline Grace from Baby Kitten Rescue took them in.

The little male kitten was named Otter and his sister was named Bunny. Tiny Otter, among other ailments, was diagnosed with a rare congenital defect called 'Meningoencephalocele.' This means that a part of his brain protrudes out of the hole in his skull.

For his safety, a special helmet was custom-made to protect his brain.

A little later, Otter was operated on to remove the hole in his skull. After that he will have to wear a protective helmet for a while, but eventually he will be able to do without it.

When the time comes to look for owners, the kittens will only be adopted together as a pair.

"We have not started accepting adoption applications for Bunny & Otter yet. There is still a 2-3 month monitoring period after Otter’s surgery to make sure no complications arise. Once he is past this monitoring period and has no issues, we will start accepting applications for Otter & Bunny to be adopted together as a bonded pair," Caroline says.
