We’d like to introduce you to Pip, a courageous kitten who has overcome all obstacles to win a place in our hearts. For whatever reason, adorable Pip was born with malformed front legs. They’re bent, so Pip ends up walking on his elbows rather than his paws … but that doesn’t stop him!
Rescued by Tenth Life Cat Rescue in St. Louis, Pip is receiving all the attention and care that he needs, and absolutely thriving. Had Pip ended up in a regular shelter, his unique features might have landed him a quick trip to the euthanasia room, but with Tenth Life, Pip is demonstrating that even special-needs kitties deserve a loving furever home. He was delivered to Tenth Life all the way from Nebraska, where he was unable to get the care he needed. Now in Missouri, Pip is being monitored to make sure he grows up happy and healthy and finds a home that will adore him as he is.
As you can see from this video, Pip doesn’t let his disabilities get in the way. He prances and prowls and pounces just like any other kitten. His courageous spirit reminds us a whole lot of Anakin, the fierce feline born without rear legs, and without a care in the world about it.
Let’s hear it for our amazing cats!
