Meet Roux, The Lovely Bunny Cat That Will Steal Your Heart


Cats will always be cats. Despite her congenital deformity, this spunky one-year-old Roux is still playful just like any other cat! She was adopted by Jackie Deak Akey in Louisiana, has become an Instagram sensation (more than 560k followers) for her inspiring story and adorable bunny hops.

Akey, who works at a veterinary clinic in New Orleans, learned of Roux (full name Lil’ Bunny Sue Roux Hendrickson Dean Akey) from an animal shelter who said that she had been surrendered to them because her deformity rendered her unable to bury her waste in her litter box. Akey knew she had to take care of her, so she got Roux home and gave her everything she needs in order to be no less than any cat.

Roux was born with two legs.

She was given up because she was unable to bury her waste in her litter box.

Luckily, vet clinic worker Jackie Deak Akey adopted her as soon as she saw her.

She’s often called a “bunny-cat” because of her hopping.

Besides her congenital defects, she’s otherwise healthy.

She’s figured out her own way of doing everything that she needs to do.

Her legs get a big workout every day.

She can run surprisingly fast and even jump on the sofa!

Roux will need back and leg checkups from the vet when she grows older.

For now, though, there’s nothing to worry about!
