Ali Cat Rescue is the usual name of Ali Cat Rescue Inc., a feline rescue organisation which is dedicated to helping stray and outdoor community cats in the USA and around the world.
They have an excellent Instagram webpage and on their page is this charming little video which caught my eye. It shows a very young kitten who was sadly born with deformed hind legs. As usual, he’s getting over it and dealing with it in a plucky way. We all know that cats don’t feel bad if they are born with a disability. It doesn’t affect them emotionally as it does people. They accept what they are born with and their circumstances and get on with it. It is one of the endearing qualities of the domestic cat.

Sweet Honey Rooibos is the sweetest baby and just loves belly rubs! His right hind foot has atrophied completely, but he is the epitome of #tinybutmighty He is the smallest of the litter of five, but still tries really hard to keep up with his bigger siblings and is using his little leg to get around. He was born with both back legs wrapped around his body and badly deformed. The left hind leg has straightened a lot with exercise, massage and physical therapy. His little left foot is still turned sideways, but is doing much better! #babycat #orangetabby #orangekitten #specialneedscats
