This little cat was born with condition called radial agenesis which prevents her from normally using her front legs. Although it is known that cats with disabilities are not really the first choice for people looking to adopt from shelters, Kanga Roo had such luck to be adopted by amazing people who opened a Facebook page about her and are posting regular updates.

First things first
This little girl was brought into vet clinic in Northern California to be euthanised when she was just 4 weeks old. Due to her deformity, first impression was that her life would be of such low quality that it would be close to torture. Luckily, they decided to contact Saving Grace Rescue first because they're known to take in and help babies like this before.

She was noticed
It was back in 2014. when her new owners saw video of her and immediately fell in love with her. After contacting Saving Grace Rescue, they were informed that she needed to stay with them for few more weeks – time needed for her to gain some more weight so she can be sprayed.

Before she was brought to her new home, new owners were “warned” that she was a lively little kitten! When she was only a few weeks old, and despite her deformity, she'd already jump out of her box and explore. Simply, this kitten didn't think she's any different than any other feline.

Upon arrival, it was clear that this is no ordinary kitten. She was curious, amazingly active considering her condition and overall adorable kitten. Why would she let such insignificant little things stop that exploring spirit of hers?

So different, yet so alike
With a lot of things in her life being different than the “normal” cats, one thing remains the same – that adorable look when she wants some snacks. I can only imagine reaching for the grocery bag and seeing her hopping to me with that look on her face!

Cats will always be cats – no matter the size, color or any other factor, they all want snuggles, scratches, petting and occasional treat. After that they can curl up and take a nap and Kanga is no different.

When she was adopted, at first it was risky to let her play with her new feline family. There were potentional injuries to think about after all. Later on, after talking with several vets, they realized that it's perfectly ok to let her play with the others and let her enjoy her feline life to the fullest!
