The adorable kitten called Watson is a champion who has beaten the odds life stacked up against it. Watson was born with radial hypoplasia - a congenital disease that causes deformities of the limbs – resulting in his front legs twisting inwards.

Due to the strain on his joints, the two-year-old feline was left unable to walk and severely disfigured as his paws continued to remain twisted.

Thankfully Watson was rescued and adopted by Melanie Lusnak, 28, who refused to let him suffer any longer.

Melanie was repeatedly told there was no hope for Watson but, refusing to give up on him, she found an animal prosthetist who was willing to help.

Watson has now been fitted with boot-like prosthetics that allow him to play and run around with the other animals.
