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

Meet Little Roo Russ, a cat who resembles a kangaroo.

Something wasn’t quite right when the cat and her two siblings arrived at the shelter in late April 2016. “She was considerably smaller than her siblings and the staff at the shelter noticed she was walking weird,” Marnie Russ told Love Meow.They discovered Roo was born without elbow joints after x-raying her. Marnie, who specialized in special needs care, brought the cat home with her and quickly fell in love with her!

Little Roo is still as cheerful and fluffy as ever, eight months later, and she’s not letting anyone stop her! “She’s learned to walk on her front legs like a regular kitten,” Marnie explained. “If you didn’t know her story, you wouldn’t believe anything was wrong with her, except she’s shorter in the front when she walks.” What’s the best part? “She was successful in raising thousands of dollars for the National Kitten Coalition, which assisted in her rescue,” Marnie added. “She doesn’t even realize how good she is at giving back!”
