It's amazing how cats can adapt. I had a cat when I was young that got caught in a trap. He could run with the best of them. Long life, Burt.

Burt is a shining example of someone who decides to overcome and does it with grace and dignity. He is also, and I am sure he knows it, a gorgeous cat. He has everything he could want; love, compassion, caring, food and a warm, very welcoming home. You go Burt!! The world is yours.

Burt is quite the handsome and splendid one. A cat with a disability does not let this get him down, it is amazing how animals adapt and carry on. Wonderful to know that he has a loving and caring forever home.

I love happy endings even though it took a tragety to get to this point. Hope Burt isn't an outdoor cat. He needs to be an indoor cat only.

Sad to hear that this baby had this terrible destiny to loose a leg but I'm happy to know that he found a good home where good humans will take care of him for the rest of his life :))))) Thanks Cher.
