Two tiny orphaned kittens with special needs have found each other and become the cutest little besties.

Ozzy the black kitten was born with "Swimmer's Syndrome" where he drags his hind legs to the side when he moves. One of his eyes is blind because it never fully developed. He was put in a local shelter where he was faced with an uncertain fate.

PeekaBoo the tiny gray kitten was found in poor shape at just 3 weeks old. She was malnourished and had a severely infected eye, which was removed to save her life. The little fur buddy is grateful to be on the mend.

"They were rescued separately, both orphans, by themselves - no siblings or mother cat with them, from the same urban area of Greenville, North Carolina that isn't ecologically healthy for them or any of the cats there," Adrienne Harrington of TNR Feral Cat Initiative of NC told Love Meow.

Harrington took the kittens in so they could get the medical care they need for their recovery and a better chance at a loving home.

Soon after they met, their friendship blossomed.

"They stayed with each other while recovering. Though Ozzy cannot walk, he can move and play well with his front legs since he had to survive to 4 months of age alone outside," Harrington told Love Meow.

"PeekaBoo was very weak, only 8 ounces. We didn't know if she would recover from surgery...," Harrington told Love Meow.

As soon as she was placed with Ozzy, the tiny puff of ball perked up. "Ozzy got the best of her at first, but now she has gotten stronger. She likes to play-attack him, and has a funny habit of wagging her tail and wiggling her ears."

Ozzy is so happy to have a sister to play with. They have become an inseparable pair.

"We're going to be working on a therapy wheelchair to see if we can train his leg muscles and give him some strength to be able to walk and not drag his legs," Harrington told Love Meow. "He actually gets around very well being inside and has learned to climb, play fetch and use a litterbox."

The two buddies had a rough start in life. Both can't see through one eye and both require special needs, but together they complete each other.

Ozzy gets his little sister from another mother as he also has one seeing eye. Peekaboo stays close by Ozzy, watching over him and keeping him company at all times.

"We're hoping to find the perfect home that can take both of them together," Harrington told Love Meow.

"They're just as wonderful as normal kittens and have overcame so much."

Having each other by their side, they are the happiest they can be.
