    "He was brought in in a mac and cheese box, and that’s how he got his name," Dr. Ned Horowitz, the owner and medical director of the Massapequa Pet Vet, told BuzzFeed.

    The weeks-old kitten (who goes by Mac for short) was found on the streets of Long Island, New York, abandoned by his mom. He was rescued and brought into the veterinary hospital on Sunday, where a few technicians fashioned the little guy some wheels out of old toys and Legos.

    "This was the first time the kitten was in the cart," Horowitz said. "There were about 12 of us watching him. We put him on the ground, and he just took off."

    In spite of his paralysis, which is thought to be a result of nerve damage, Mac is doing really well.

    "He’s starting to slowly regain some use of his legs," Dr. Horowitz said. "We took x-rays, and he’s on medication to hopefully help him. He’s eating well, he’s very playful, he’s affectionate."

    Mac is currently being fostered by one of the hospital technicians, and will be available for adoption once he is strong and healthy enough.

    "We love this little guy and can't wait to see what the future holds for him," the vet staff wrote on Facebook.
