Olive's 'wobbly kitten syndrome' causes her to tremble when she moves. It's similar to cerebral palsy in humans, except that it doesn't get worse over time. Still, sadly, kittens with the condition are often put down because people think it's painful or contagious.

The staff says that's not true, and Olive is super playful and has a spunky personality.

She can now consider herself a viral video star. This clip has been viewed over 1.4 million times!
