Couple Rescues Stray Cat And Her Kitten That Has a Bent Leg

An abandoned stray cat who had sadly been left behind by her owners did a great job of finding the perfect family to help her and her injured kitten.

Pamela Amella and her husband started noticing stray cats turning up in their yard about a year after they moved into their home in Maine. Although some, they believe, had been left behind by their owners who had moved away.

Pamela decided to reach out to some local organizations for help, but sadly none of them had the necessary resources. “I did everything I could to help the cats. We fed them, and in the winter if we can catch them we bring them in,” Pamela said.

Earlier this year, a pregnant stray cat made her way to their home. Pamela and her husband knew they just had to help her.

The cat gave birth to two kittens on October 24th, but sadly only one survived. The surviving kitten was born with one bent leg. The couple named him Lux, and decided to name the mother cat, Kat.

“At first, I didn’t notice his bent paw until I went over and held him for the first time,” Pamela said.

His injured leg didn't slow him down. As soon as he could walk, he was up and about, exploring and playing.

“His favorite toy is a little purple bear and anything that moves,” Pamela said. “Lux doesn’t let his paw stop him one bit.”

If he's not playing, he's snuggling up to his humans. “Lux is funny and has an amazing spirit and just melts your heart,” Pamela said.

Lux has grown to be happy and healthy. He doesn't realize that he's any different to any other kitten.

Kat is a wonderful Mama and is very attentive to her baby. She is also thriving and the couple have fallen in love with both mother and son.

Pamela and her husband continue to help stray cats in their neighborhood by providing food, bedding and shelter.

Kat and Lux are definitely two of the lucky ones who have found their forever home with a loving family.
