Kevin the Russian Blue cat was found in a car park and brought to a vet clinic when he was just 4 weeks old. He was not like the other kittens, though; he had a serious condition and the vets didn’t believe he’d live.

“His outlook when he first arrived at the clinic was not good at all,” his owner Tailah told Bored Panda. “The first night I brought him home and tried him on solids, he would peck at the food so hard that he would literally bang his head on the floor.”

Kevin has Hydrocephalus. “Hydrocephalus is a condition involving fluid on the brain,” Taliah explained. “The biggest concern was that it would cause Kevin to seizure but 4 years later and he’s never had one! He is strictly an indoor cat though he has an enclosed balcony with a castle and toys and he also has access to our side courtyard.

“I always had a gut feeling that he was going to be a miracle kitten but I didn’t know whether that was because I got attached within 5 seconds of meeting him and knew I wouldn’t be able to let him go!” Happy 4th birthday, Kev!
