Watching the video was heartbreaking, though! It's sad to see the poor kitty paralized. :( I hope they can find a way to help her!

But still they both seem very happy!! :) Thanks for sharing!

Ruthie needs a wheelchair to get around, and I'm glad they will always be together.

Sweet! Love the names ~ my favorite movie characters. The little Ruthie looks like she could be a little pistol!!

Angie, BFF means Best Friends Forever. Wie passend! But I like your Best Feline Friend

Animals with disabilities can do really well when they have the love and affection of another animal and people. The video warmed my heart.
