The Cat Born With Backwards Legs

The orange tabby was born with a severe birth defect that left him unable to stand or walk.

“Both legs were basically backwards. He had to drag his whole behind,” Jenny Schlueter said.

Stockings’ hind legs were hyperextended backwards and formed a “W” shape. He had trouble with the most basic kitten activities. He also had sores on his legs from dragging them around.

Three procedures and six weeks later, Stockings’ feet point forward.

About Heretic

I design video games for a living, write fiction, political theory and poetry for personal amusement, and train regularly in Western European 16th century swordwork. On frequent occasion I have been known to hunt for and explore abandoned graveyards, train tunnels and other interesting places wherever I may find them, but there is absolutely no truth to the rumor that I am preparing to set off a zombie apocalypse. Nothing that will stand up in court, at least. I use paranthesis with distressing frequency, have a deep passion for history, anthropology and sociological theory, and really, really, really hate mayonnaise. But I wash my hands after the writing. Promise.
