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:

When he was only a couple of months old, Anakin had to hobble over to a local workplace that left out food for feral cats. It took a few visits outside before his current owner could coax Anakin into trusting her, but eventually he joined his new, loving family.

Continually in awe of his energy and fortitude, Anakin’s owners have kept tabs on his progress and answer his well-wishers’ questions here.

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.
