Cats Who Can't Walk Still Love To 'Run' Around Together
When Mohawk and Paddywhack were found dumped in a cardboard box, their rescuers figured the cats had lost movement in their back legs because of their cruel confinement.
They were rushed to an emergency clinic right after the box was found in a park in Toronto, Canada.
"It was assumed that at that point that maybe their deformities were actually injuries," Heather Brown, executive director of Toronto Cat Rescue, tells The Dodo.
X-rays told a different story. Mohawk and Paddywhack were born with a deformity that left their back legs paralyzed.
But Brown didn't need an X-ray to see these cats had long learned to live with their condition.
"That was pretty much five minutes after arriving at my house," Brown says of a clip she posted to Facebook showing the cats at play.
Maybe their condition had led their former family to give up on them. That may be a good thing. Now they have a chance to find a home where their off-the-wall antics are fully appreciated.
"They are great little cats," Brown says. "Once you get used to it, you barely see the deformity. "They're just regular cats. They love to chase each other around. They're really good buddies."
And they're looking for a home together.
Mohawk and Paddywhack have been in foster care since May, long enough for their rescuers to realize nothing stops them from being cats.
