HARFORD COUNTY, md. — A special needs kitten has found new home in Harford County.
The adoption could not have been more perfect. WMAR-2 News' Lauren has more on the match in today's Good To Know.

Twinkle Toes came to the Humane Society of Harford County looking for a forever home.

She was born with pectus excavatum, a condition in which the breast bone is sunken into the chest. When the Cromwell's of Bel Air saw the kitten, they knew she was meant to be part of their family. "We were searching for a cat at first just to have as a friend. Then we came across a cat at the humane society that had the same medical condition as me. That's when we knew this was going to be a good cat," Cris Cromwell said.

Cris hopes his story will inspire others to adopt animals with disabilities. He has renamed Twinkle Toes. The kitten now goes by Tabby and is very happy in her new home.There are still a lot of kittens and cats available for adoption at the Humane Society of Harford County. Go to if you are looking for a new addition to your family.
