NEW JERSEY (KTRK) -- A congenital defect hasn't stopped this kitten from playing thanks to a brilliant idea from his owner.
Lydia got Marcus when he was only 4 weeks old. He was born with a congenital defect that caused a hole in his body where his umbilical cord should be.
Unfortunately, Marcus is too small to have this hole surgically repaired. This left his owner to think of way that he could still enjoy life like the playful kitten that he is.
She had the genius idea of putting a sock on him. The sock acts like a second skin for him, keeping all of Marcus's inside in and in place.
And as you can see in the video he is able to run around and play just like a kitten should.
And he also gets to wear a really cool sock-sweater.
