This is Shakes.

Shakes is an 8-week-old kitten in Mumbai, India, who suffers from feline cerebellar hypoplasia, according to a video uploaded to World For All’s Facebook page. The neurological condition causes her to have uncontrollable tremors. It also impacts her coordination and fine motor skills.

But do you think that gets in her way? No. In the video, Shakes romps around and explores her world just like any other kitten.. albeit a little more wobbly than most. It’s easy to see that Shakes is no victim. She’s a hero. Heroic acts are not always bold and news-worthy. Sometimes heroism is as subtle as living each day to the fullest and not letting your circumstances or your surroundings tamper with your strong spirit and boundless curiosity.

SHAKESThis is the story of amazing SHAKES! 🙂
