"My daughter works at a vet and [Opal] was brought in by the previous owner," Amber Holly of Saving Grace Rescue told Love Meow.

The kitty had gotten out of the house and only returned a few days later with an injured leg. By the time Opal was brought to the vet, her leg had become unsalvageable. "The injury was too old so her leg needed to by amputated."

The previous owner couldn't afford the surgery so asked that she be put down. "My daughter had to sign her over so they could amputate her leg."

Since the day they began treating the little sweet gal, she hasn't stopped purring.

"She has a huge purr and is super affectionate and outgoing," Amber told Love Meow. "She cuddled with our manager and jumped up in the bed at her foster."

After the surgery, the sweet kitty bounced back like a champ. In the weeks that followed, she healed up well and strong.

She is quite a talker and always enjoys a good conversation with her human companions. The one-year-old kitty is full of love.

As Opal was ready to look for her forever home, a family, who previously adopted a tripawd kitty, happened to be looking for another 3-legged cat. "Our amazing network shared her story and helped us connect to them," Amber told Love Meow.

As soon as they met Opal, they fell in love. It was meant to be!
