Cute Animal Videos of the Day: Anakin, the Two-Legged Kitten

Though abandoned as a kitten and born without back legs or a pelvis, Anakin now scales six-foot cat condos and gets around just fine. In fact, one of his favorite places to nap is the highest perch he can find, when he’s not busy jumping around with his four new brothers and sisters:

What a cheeky little monkey! Adorable. Kudos to his owners for giving him such a great environment. One of the things I love about cats is that they never feel sorry for themselves; they just get on with it.
