Some cats are simply born without luck. The poor kitty on the pics was born without elbow joints and obviously as the runt of the litter. Roo and two of her siblings were brought to a shelter in early 2016, and it was clear that the kitten is pretty different. She was smaller than the others and walked weird. After a thorough vet inspection, it was discovered little Roo was born without elbow joints. She was in need of help and fast, and she would need help for the rest of her life.
Luckily, one of the staffers in the shelter, Marnie, had experience caring for special cats. She took Roo to foster in her home and day after day, she fell in love with her. Little Roo had no idea that she’s disabled, playing around just like any other kitty. She learned how to walk around on her hind legs and did perfectly fine.
She stole Marnie’s heart from the moment they met, and in the months and years ahead she blossomed into a beautiful kitten. She walks around just like any other cat and is the fluffiest possible cat you’ve ever seen. Roo loves everyone and everything, and grew from the runt of the litter to a magical cat.
It’s been quite a ride, but Marnie and Roo are living the best life, just like the little cat deserves.
