Right when Little Roo Russ the kitten and her two siblings were brought into the shelter in late April 2016, the staffs noticed something wasn’t right. “She was considerably smaller than her siblings and the staff at the shelter noticed she was walking weird,” Marnie Russ said. It turned out she was born without elbow joints, according to a x-ray screening. Little Roo Russ later found herself at miss Marnie’s home. With her experience of caring for pets with special needs, there is no doubt that the kitten was in good hands.
After 8 months of love and care, Lil’ Roo has grown into a healthy fluffy furbaby. “She has learned to use her front legs like a normal kitty would, so if you didn’t know her story you wouldn’t think anything was wrong with her, except when she walks she is shorter in the front,” Marnie said. What’s better? “She has been successful in helping raise thousands of dollars for the organization that helped save her, the National Kitten Coalition,” Marnie said. “She is so great at giving back and she doesn’t even know it!”
