We first heard about this little kitten on Love Meow and immediately fell in love. Mercury was found weighing only 5 ounces and missing both front legs (believed to have been caused by a weed whacker incident). He was immediately taken to a vet to be treated, and ever since has been living a normal life, frolicking and leaping after toys like any other cat. Though he is missing both front legs, his owners say he has found ways to get around by leaping or balancing on his back legs, and he simply loves life! He is an inspiration to everyone to make the best of life, no matter what challenges get thrown your way.
