This rescued kitty was born with no legs but he amazes people with what he can do!

Before this kitty was adopted, no one would have ever thought that he’d survive. Now, he’s turning a year old and full of life as ever!

“He was born with two legs. The first day I saw him, he was probably a few weeks old and very shy,” Mareen told in an interview with Love Meow.

Mareen, a cat lover from Germany, met Rocket when she was feeding stray cats in an abandoned yard. A lot of cats tried to get her attention but a special kitty stood out among the rest. She noticed a kitty walking with only his arms. She tried to pet him, but he quickly ran away from her. She was so surprised with how he quickly adapted to his disability. He’s using his arms to walk and run, and his tail to maneuver.

Although he was a bit shy, Mareen instantly knew that they had a connection. So, she visited the yard a few times more to open up to the kitty. She brought cat food every time she visited him. It was not long before he was starting to like her.

Soon enough, Mareen was able to take him to his new home. He was homesick for a few nights, but her rescuer was determined to make him feel loved.

“He meowed all night long, but I kept him company and I talked to him.”

After adjusting to his new environment, he was able to reciprocate affection and love to his new owner. He even managed to make friends with his new brothers, Flint and Gurchken.

“He is a little fighter and cheeky to the other cats, but they come along very well.” Said Mareen.

According to his new owner, the name Rocket suited him well because he was very playful and had a lot of energy.

“I even think he has more energy than the older ones. And he is perfectly capable of climbing, jumping, and running.”

Rocket plays around with his brothers all-day long, and he barely gets tired!

Mareen also described how he absolutely loves receiving belly rubs. Isn’t that cute?

 Now, Rocket’s all grown-up as he celebrates his 1st birthday this 1st of May. Rocket is truly an amazing kitty that inspires us to keep moving in spite of the challenges in life. We wish you a happy birthday, Rocket!
