Two-Legged Kittens

In the past, animals with birth defects and physical abnormalities didn’t stand a chance of survival. But modern medicine — and increased animal domestication — has given some of these critters a second leash on life.

Here’s the story of Grace, the two-legged kitten.

This local news story from April 2008 profiles Amazing Grace, a farm cat from Kansas who was born without her two front legs. This doesn’t prevent her from getting around, though. She hops around like a kangaroo, though apparently she prefers carpet to linoleum.

But Grace isn’t the only two-legged kitten walking around the world. In Denver, Lola was born without the use of her hind legs. She’s learned to walk on her front paws:

And here’s a very vocal kitten from Japan (?) who apparently had its two hind legs amputated:

The Japanese kitten actually manages to balance itself without walking in a handstand. (Or “pawstand”, if you will.)

I wonder if cats have an easier time coping with disabilities like this because of their natural dexterity. This is definitely an argument for people to give tough amputation cases a second chance instead of resorting to euthanasia.

These videos make me both smile and tear up. Poor babies, yet I bet they do not know they are different. They just find their way. Thanks for posting this….
