Sweet Roux the cat born without her front legs, but she doesn't care!

Meet Lil' Bunny Sue Roux. She was born with two front nubs that she's so proud of. Roux never cares too much about having front paws. To her, she's purrfectly perfect.

Roux was surrendered to a shelter in desperate need of a home. "When I saw her it was absolutely love at first sight. Roux was brought to the clinic the next day and I took her home that night," Olivia Canlas wrote via meow box.

Roux uses her little nubs to her advantage!

"She was born without (her front legs) due to a congenital abnormality, most likely due to a rare condition called transverse terminal hemimelia.

Her mobility is very good, and she is able to function quite well without front legs.

Her back legs are quite strong and she can leap impressively high!" Canlas added.

Roux walks a bit like a kangaroo. Just like Mercury and Pancake who were also born without front paws, Roux has found a way to move around effortlessly. "Her nubs swing back and forth while she walks but they do not touch the ground. When she wants to move quickly or play, she hops with both back legs in unison like a rabbit. She can move very fast when she wants to!"

She walks like a kangaroo and hops like a rabbit.

Roux is very independent, playful and full of energy. "She is cuddliest at bedtime, when she purrs loudly for chin scratches. Roux is a happy and very sweet girl!"

"I have a pair of nubs and I'm proud of them!"

This healthy little girl is fearless, independent, confident, and ready to take on whatever comes her way!
