A kitten born with a condition that makes it impossible to walk is learning how to get around despite her limitations thanks to a specially designed buggy.

“Tumbelina” suffers from cerebellar hypoplasia, according to Valley Cats Inc. in Woodland Hills.

She has the will to move, but not the ability, according to rescuers who compare her to Stephen Hawking; a brilliant mind trapped in a body that can’t keep up.

The rescue organization stepped in to save Tumbelina who was at risk of being euthanized because of her special needs, according to a post on YouTube.

The four-wheel buggy provided by the rescue will allow Tumbelina to propel herself forward without the help and support of her caregivers, according to the post.

The next step for Tumbelina is to find a forever home.
