Nothing stops Houston the cat from living life to the fullest and showing love and affection to everyone he meets, not even the brain condition he suffers from. The team of the sanctuary that took care of this kitty has immediately fallen in love with this cutie.
Houston the cat has always been affectionate with everyone despite his condition, so no wonder that the staff at Tabby's Place, a cat sanctuary in Ringoes, New Jersey, took a liking to the cat at once.
Houston had severe hydrocephalus, a brain condition with an excess cerebrospinal fluid. This put constant pressure on his brain and made his gait unsteady. In addition, he was unable to fully open his eyes because of swelling.
A cat in love with life
Tabby's Place consulted a veterinary neurologist, who prescribed a specific treatment for the cat. Houston's condition gradually improved, as did his mood. He has become an even more pleasant companion.
"Houston has already given us more than we could ever give him," Angela Hartley, development director of Tabby's Place, said.
"He is one of the zestiest, most wonderstruck little marvels we've ever met. He seems to approach every day with starry eyes, smitten with life itself and with everyone he meets," she added.

"He loves to be held, cuddled, and even bathed," Hartley shared.
Houston has become a sort of mascot of the sanctuary, which shows him at its events and every major public initiative.
