Hi my name is Trixie and I am a happy little tripod cat. That’s right, I only have 3 legs.
Let me tell you the story... I gave birth in the pound to my own kittens (UGH yuck, I am a kitten myself) and then came into GAR so that someone could take me into their home and care for me as I had a very sore leg. Turns out, the vet thinks I was hit by a car when I was young and my leg never grew. The solution? Amputation.
I was very brave throughout the whole ordeal and never got upset with my foster mum even when she knew I was in pain. It has been 2 months since I’ve had my surgery and I’m still getting used to having 3 legs but I’m doing great now.
When I’m not hopping around following my foster mum I am waiting for her to come home from work, so I can follow her. I love being picked up and cuddled and I will stretch my arms up your leg so you will want to pick me up (it works every time). I love giving kisses and using my scratching post and I’ve gotten used to using my kitty litter on 3 legs.
I am looking for a home where I will be apart of your family as I am a very affectionate girl. I’m not a huge fan of other cats but I will put up with them. Sorry but I don’t like dogs. During the day my foster mum goes to work and that’s totally fine but I love it when she gets home so I can talk to her (I chirp at her until I can get her attention) it always makes her laugh!
I hope you give me a chance to meet you and show you how great I am!
