When the kitten came to Caring Fields Felines, a rescue group in Palm City, Florida, they rushed him to the animal hospital for emergency care.

The staff at Savanna Animal Hospital gave him an X-ray, and saw a fracture cervical vertebrae. They placed him into a body cast immediately. Everyone was fighting hard to save the little kitten's life.

Not only did the cast bring him back to life, but the ginger boy began to thrive.

A few weeks later, Davey is happy and doing so much better. He is loving his new life.

The kitty is almost 3 months old and is as sweet as he can be. "He is being closely monitored by our vet. He is currently in foster now with one of the vet techs," Caring Fields Felines said.

They make sure little Davey is always surrounded by people and lots of love. Because he is healing so well, the staff hope they can remove the body cast in about 3-4 weeks.

Everyone is rooting for this little fighter to get back on his paws. Nothing can stop him.

"Here is Davey with his foster brother Oakley, a 3 year old lab mix. Oakley adores his foster Davey and rushes to Davey's side every time he cries."
