You have probably seen many cats missing a leg or two. Luckily, nowadays, there are many different tools that help them walk and move normally in their daily lives.
However, losing both legs isn’t an easy injury, but a severe issue that requires a lot of help and effort. That’s exactly what happened to this beautiful kitty called Mittens.
Mittens lost both of his front legs in the blink of an eye. He had zero chance to survive until the most amazing thing happened.
Mittens lived in a small village on the outskirts of town. He was a great example of a cat because he was a skilled hunter, and he loved to catch birds and other smaller animals.
Every day, he would lie in wait, watching for his prey to come within striking distance.
Everything went wrong one sunny afternoon. Mittens spotted a small bird perched on a branch, just a few feet away. He crouched down low, ready to pounce. He jumped in the air, but then, something unexpected and terrible happened.
Mittens misjudged the distance and landed on a transformer box instead of the branch where the bird was perched. The transformer box was live with electricity, and Mittens was electrocuted.
The force of that shock threw him back onto the ground, and he lay there twitching and in pain.
Unfortunately, during this incident, his front legs were severely damaged. It was immediately concluded that they needed to be amputated.
Mittens’ owners reacted very quickly; they took him to the vet, who did their best to help and save the poor cat.
They amputated Mittens’ front legs, after which he was very weak and in great pain. He was so weak that his owners thought he wouldn’t survive. That made them desperate.
Luckily, Mittens succeeded and made his owners happy again. He was a real fighter, and he still wanted to live, so he didn’t want to give up so easily.
After some time, Mittens even managed to adapt to his new way of life, of course, with the help of his human parents.
He discovered that, despite missing his front legs, he could still move around. He also learned how to use his hind legs to propel himself forward.
What’s even better was that the hunter inside Mittens still remained. With only two hind legs, he learned a new way of catching prey.
He would patiently wait until the bird was close, and then he would use his remaining claws to snatch it out of the air.
Despite his disability, Mittens continued recovering and adapting, and enjoying his new life. His owners simply marveled at his resilience.
They had thought that he would never be able to hunt again, but Mittens proved them wrong, once again.
He had a strong spirit and a fierce determination that kept him going even when the odds were against him.
From a cat with zero chance to survive to a healthy cat living a normal life on only two legs – amazing, isn’t it? I think he kept fighting for his owners; he had a nice life and a family who loved him, and he simply wanted to keep all of that.
