No One Wanted This Kitten And The Reason Why Will Break Your Heart

Zeke was born with what is commonly referred to as ‘water on the brain,’ or hydrocephalus. It means that he had a build up of CSF (cerebral spinal fluid) in the ventricles of his brain. According to Medical News Today, the disorder is caused by a blockage that prevents the fluid from draining properly.

It is a rare condition in cats. Zeke looks a little different as a result. His chances of getting adopted were pretty slim.

In July 2015, When Lisa Jones from Super Heros Animal Hydrocephalus Society heard about Zeke, she arranged for him to fly from Texas to New York.

Before Zeke made it to New York, he had been rescued from the DFW shelter by Kaley’s Place. Lisa was going to take care of the 13-week-old tuxedo kitty.
