Little Beamer was born with limited vision, hearing and mobility, in a barn to a feral mom. He was surrendered to VOKRA by a local animal hospital and brought into foster care. Despite his physical limitations, Beamer played and explored his foster home just like any other kitten. He also loved getting pets and hanging out with his feline foster siblings. Beamer just needed his future guardian to keep a clean space to help him get around and have some patience as he navigated a new space. Eventually, he found his perfect match with his adopter Jen.
After his adoption Jen spent a lot of time with Beamer on his physio and walking exercises. All that hard work paid off and Beamer went from barely using his back legs to climbing and diving off his five-foot-tall scratching post.
“We had to Beamer-proof the apartment we had for him. He cannot be barricaded or confined as he’ll tear thru anything you build like child’s play,” said Jen.
Beamer now lives the good life with Jen and his feline siblings, Max and Kink. He spends his days napping on a heated kitty bed and running around the house playing with Max and Kink, or just about anything else he can find. Jen tells us that, like most cats, Beamer loves to sleep on (or steal!) anything comfortable, with baby blankets being his preferred choice.
Despite his rough start in life, Beamer’s the perfect example of never giving up and persevering through adversity.
“Beamer, even with all that goes on with his medical issues and all the help he needs, has been an amazing and awesome addition to our family. He’s always doing something to make you laugh,” adds Jen.
