Myrcella and Fatone, what a sweet and special pair!  

As you can see Myrcella has front legs that are a little bit different than most. That isn't going to slow down this girl! She’s been seen by two vets and a special orthopedic surgeon. She’s not in pain and gets around without limits. She uses her litter box like every other kitty, plays with her string, and  has no idea of her limits. Myrcella was born with this birth defect.

FFGW explored all options of any surgery she might need.The wonderful orthopedic surgeon that examined her for us said we don't need to do surgery to fix for her as she's learned to use her legs that way they are which is what is best for her health and happiness. 

Fatone is her best friend who the shelter paired with her after all her siblings were adopted and she was left alone. Fatone adores her and she adores him the same way!

They are a joy to watch and so fun because they’re very playful! Myrcella has adorable kangaroo like feet and she sits up on her hind feet like a marsupial.  

Please don't miss out on this super special duo!
