A two-legged kitten named Cassidy is now the proud recipient of a new wheelchair to replace his missing hind legs. He takes to them perfectly, and you can almost see the joy in his eyes once he realizes he has control over his mobility. This little warrior has a background story that makes him sound like a Navy Seal or even Wolverine from the X-Men:
This tiny feral kitten lost both back legs when he was born and somehow managed to survive nine weeks in the forest. It is a medical miracle that he survived even a day with such severe injuries, let alone nine weeks. His little body had just about given out from starvation and infection by the time we rescued him, but he never gave up!
He survived 9 weeks in the woods with half his appendages. Most humans would not survive 9 hours in the woods if their cell phone had half its power. It is also worth noting that the good folks at Mountain View Veterinary Hospital who nursed him back to health did not give him a name reflective of his physical challenges, like "Deuce" or "Scooter."
May Cassidy have a fruitful and playful life. Who knows, they may even have to outfit him some rugged tires or snowshoe attachments if he chooses to be an outdoors cat again.
