This 2-Legged Cat Won’t Let His Disability Slow Him Down…Just Watch!

by Julia Lynn Rubin

Mercury is everything you could want in a cat: fuzzy, adorable, playful, and tons of fun.

But there’s something unique about this little kitty…as he only has two hind legs!

Amazingly, he learned to walk upright much like a person, and never let his disability slow him down.

Watching him play and romp, he doesn’t even seem to notice that there’s anything “different” about him at all. He currently has over 79,000 fans on Facebook.
