Meet Koko and YumYum! Both of them were born with a deformed hind leg, but nothing can stop these fuzzy little guys!

“Yesterday I stopped by Saving Grace Rescue Inc to meet these two – they are both tripods, and are missing their right foot in the back. They are named Koko and Yum Yum,” Josh Norem of the Furrtographer wrote.

“We think they might have had the umbilical cord wrapped around them during their development, so the foot never materialized. Needless to say it in now way impedes their mobility, or cuteness,” he added.

Meet Koko and YumYum. They are both missing a paw, but nothing can stop them!

A tiny tripod – it doesn’t get much cuter than this.

You can’t see the missing foot but you can sort of tell there’s not a foot there, just a leg. It doesn’t slow him or her down at all.

Meet Henry the pirate cat who has three legs, one eye and a big purrsonality.

“He was born with a non-functional leg and an eye with recurring ulcer issues. So in one giant operation, they removed his eye, his leg, and neutered him! Must have been one heck of a rough wake-up for the little guy… According to his medical records, he was purring and cuddling and ruling around the very next day,” said Phil.

They decided to adopt Henry when they met him. It was love at first sight. “We didn’t realize until he woke up that he was missing parts. We adopted him right away, as he was extremely cute and cuddly.”

Henry doesn’t seem to notice he’s any different. “He runs around like crazy, eats like a champ and frequently tackles his much larger, older ‘brother’, Johnny… He is SO fluffy and cute, and has an amazing personality,” he added.

A tiny kitty named Trinity was born with only three legs unlike her 4-legged littermates. She was taken into the care of The Cat House on The Kings, no-cage, no-kill sanctuary for feral and abandoned cats and kittens. The little tabby girl has no idea that she has physical limitations. To her, she’s perfect.

“She’s about 7 weeks old and comes to us with cute 4-legged littermates. She was born this way… She is friendly, playful, quick to purr… Tripod (or tri-pawed) kittens make wonderful and loving pets and have absolutely no idea that they have physical limitations,” said The Cat House on Facebook.

It didn’t take long for little Trinity to find her perfect home. She will be greeted by her new big sister, a lovely ginger girl called Marmalady Lemieux, who is also a tripod.

The Cat House wrote on their Facebook yesterday: “Trinity sleeps soundly in the loving arms of her new mom, Laura…. Laura and Trinity are now settled in a local hotel until they both fly home tomorrow to British Columbia!”

Marmalady is a happy ginger girl who lives just like other cats, but she is special. She is a tri-paw kitty who has an amazing story.

Marmalady was found as a kitten in the bushes. “The cat was just lying there panting and we thought perhaps she needed water as it was very hot,” said Lindsay. Still not realizing the cat was injured Lindsay picked her up and was quite startled when the cat’s leg flopped over her arm! “It was just hanging there!” she exclaimed. They immediately drove the injured kitty to Lindsay’s house and contacted the Cat House on the Kings and Lynea instructed her to bring the kitten to the Cat House right away.

Lynea and employee,Venessa Gamboa, jumped into action and immediately began to administer life-saving treatment. After stabilizing the kitten, Tammy Barker was called to provide care for the little ginger. She brought the injured kitty, now called Marmalady, to New Village Pet Hospital in Selma. Dr Luz Piel said that Marmalady had a severe compound fracture in her front leg. The damage to her leg was very severe and the only solution was amputation.

Marmalady became a little tripod kitty.

Marmalady remained in foster care with Tammy who lovingly nursed her back to health. On October 5th, Marmalady’s carefully chosen new mommy arrived to pick her up. Laura Lemieux drove all the way from British Columbia, Canada to pick up Marmalady.

The Divine Miss ‘M’, with her big-as-saucers eyes, perpetual ‘smile’ and captivating personality continues to enthrall the hearts of the world.

Thanks to the volunteers from the Cat House on the King, who never gave up on Marmalady, she now lives a happy life and gets to share her story with the world.

Sam the kitten never knows what it is like to have four paws. He was found when he was around 3 weeks old, missing a foot, but this little rambunctious kitty never thought he was any different. “By the time he was 8 weeks he was cruising around and keeping up with his siblings like a pro,” said reddit user mwbrjb.

“I fostered him and his siblings for a few months…. He was adopted out… 10 weeks after I found him… and a few months later the same family noticed his brother still needed a home so they adopted him, too. He’s happy and healthy,” she said on reddit.

Sam was found under a porch in Chicago. He was missing a foot. This is after the vet.

Pythagoras is a tripod who lives life to the fullest. He was rescued and brought into a shelter with a broken leg. Though they weren’t able to keep his leg, his life was saved and Pythagoras had been a sweet kitten throughout the journey.

He doesn’t think he is any different from any other 4-legged animals. In fact, he runs the house like a king. Here are some of his recent photos. (More photos of Pythagoras)
