Roo’s twisted front legs were the first thing a guy in Indiana saw when he found her living outside close to his home, but the animal herself didn’t appear to be aware of anything unusual about her. To make it easier for Roo to visit his porch and receive some food, the guy constructed a ramp out of a desire to help. The man phoned the Clark County Official Humane Association about his friend Roo as he prepared to leave.
According to Peggy Campbell-Rensel, a staff member of the Official Humane Association of Clark County, “He was scared the new renters wouldn’t care for her.”
The shelter agreed to take Roo in, as well as her kitten, and fell in love with her the moment she arrived. Seeing her twisted front legs, they weren’t sure exactly how Roo managed to get around …
… until they watched her hopping, rolling and standing on her back legs like a little human.
Roo knows exactly how to get around because it’s all she’s ever known, and while everyone else finds her methods absolutely adorable, to Roo, it’s just a normal part of life.
“She doesn’t realize she has any issues,” Campbell-Rensel said.
Her standing pose is just too cute, and fits perfectly with her sweet personality. Everyone at the shelter has loved getting to know Roo and giving her all the attention, but they’re also hoping to find her the perfect family as soon as possible.
Roo is now all settled in to the shelter and looking for a forever home. She needs a family who understands her differences and can support her if she ever needs any extra help, but for the most part, she just needs lots of love.
Roo doesn’t seem to know that she’s any different from other cats, and everyone is hoping to find her a family who sees her the same way.
