“Kangaroo” Kitten Born Without Elbow Joints Was The Smallest And Weakest Of The Litter, Look At Her Now

Meet Little Roo Russ – the cat that’s more like a kangaroo.

When the kitten and her two siblings came into the shelter in late April 2016, right away they noticed something wasn’t right. “She was considerably smaller than her siblings and the staff at the shelter noticed she was walking weird,” Marnie Russ told Love Meow. After x-raying Roo, they noticed she was born without elbow joints. Marnie, who specializes in caring for special needs, took the kitten home to take care of and soon fell deeply in love with her!

Now, eight months later, Little Roo is happy and fluffy as ever, not letting anyone stop her! “She has learned to use her front legs like a normal kitty would, so if you didn’t know her story you wouldn’t think anything was wrong with her, except when she walks she is shorter in the front,” Marnie said. The best part? “She has been successful in helping raise thousands of dollars for the organization that helped save her, the National Kitten Coalition,” Marnie said. “She is so great at giving back and she doesn’t even know it!”

Is it just me, or are grown cats a lot cuter than they were as kittens? I mean kittens are cute, but grown cats are just beautiful.

Nah, its because Boredpanda only posts the good looking grown cats. And they are photographed 10000 times in different poses with different lightning and composition and the photographer selects the best one. Cherry picking and good photography can make anything look incredibly good or bad. Depends on your objective with the photo. There is beauty and ugliness to be found in every subject in the world.

What an adorable little bedraggled kitten who has grown up to be such a beautiful cat. May she have many, many happy years. Thanks for all the rescue work that people do. I adopted a rescue dog who had a bad start in life which left him very nervous and an older blind, deaf dog. The disabilities don't matter - they can still be loved and give love back.
