Feline Friday: Against All Odds, 2-Legged Cat Stays Pawsitive
Caffrey the cat is a beautiful smoke-colored Persian cat that is charming the world with his can-do attitude. When he was just three years old, he had an unfortunate accident where he was hit by a car. He lost a back leg and injured one of his front legs.
He did well for the next ten years but then developed a malignancy in the repaired front limb. The vet consulted several colleagues who all confirmed it would be too difficult for Caffrey to cope with only two legs, particularly being on the same side. But his owner, Sue Greaves, 58, couldn't bear the thought of putting him through chemotherapy that had no guarantee of success or putting him down. So they performed the surgery, leaving Caffrey with only his two right legs.
Within days, Caffrey had learned to achieve perfect balance, especially with the help of his best buddy, a neighbor girl named Ashleigh Tyler, age 8, who helped to nurse him back to health.
