DAVIS, Calif. — Against all odds, a cat suffering from a rare spinal cord infection is back on all fours, CBS Sacramento reported.

Just three months ago, Gray was paralyzed from the waist down.

His owner Jack Hill was living in Hawaii when he found him. Hill noticed Gray was having difficulty with his back legs. Within days, he lost his ability to walk altogether.

Hill made a commitment to Gray and flew him to the world-renowned UC Davis Veterinary Hospital in California.


“He’s a bullet, that’s the best way to describe him,” Hill said. “He chases my older cat around. If you didn’t know he has a limitation, you would not know there was a problem.”

Cats may have nine lives, and because of Hill and UC Davis vets, Gray will be able to walk in all of them.

Hill and his family moved to California, because if they returned to Hawaii, Gray would have to be quarantined for six months, and that’s something they couldn’t put the cat through.
