Spaghettio, the adorable “pirate cat,” was severely injured when a chair she was climbing up toppled over, falling onto the tiny kitten.

“She was initially paralyzed and unable to eat on her own, move or walk. Her recovery was a slow process. It took weeks for her to be able to move, then stand, then walk, then run,” owner Meghan told Bored Panda.

But Spaghettio held on, and never lost her spirit. She lost an eye in the unfortunate incident, but has mostly recovered and is now an energetic, healthy and playful cat.

Thank you, Meghan, for never giving up on Spaghettio, and providing the care she needed to grow into a strong and happy kitty.
