Feral animals have a difficult time surviving. They are continuously defending their territory and ensuring their survival. When you consider that many of them live in cities and suburbs where they are constantly at risk of getting hit by a car, I’m surprised that so many of them survive. However, if they have a defect of any type, it could mean a short life because they need to get around rapidly if they need to flee. As a result, this kitten is exceedingly fortunate to have been discovered.
This adorable feral kitten was discovered and taken to the Best Friends Kitten Nursery in Salt Lake City. His mother and other littermates were also transported there. This kitty’s front legs were significantly shorter than his hind legs, according to a staff member. Because of his congenital abnormality, he was placed in a foster family, where he got along swimmingly with the other kids. His foster cat was a big fan of theirs.
This is one of the most adorable animals I’ve ever seen. His physique is so elongated that it looks like either his mother or father was a dachshund. His lovely stubby legs still allow him to move around quickly. He makes no indication that he believes he has anything wrong with him… and he doesn’t. In any case, the only thing I notice about him is his beautiful heart and energy.
Smalls was Mouse’s name after he was adopted by an older couple. Who knows why they made the change? Throughout the video, Mouse had grown on me, but they can alter his name if they choose. He’s still the same sweet, loving, and exuberant cat we saw in the video. I especially enjoyed the scene where he descended a flight of steps. He’s having a blast fighting gravity and running around.
I was smitten the very second I saw Mouse/Smalls. Weren’t you? I would adopt him in a heartbeat if he wasn’t already taken. Wouldn’t you? We’d love to hear your thoughts on this in the comments section below.
