Kanga Roo has an appropriate name.

Born with radial hypoplasia and radial agenesis, Kanga Roo often appears perched on her hind legs, and hops around rather than walking most of the time. Her condition keeps her from putting a lot of weight on her front legs, and as a result, her daily life has been challenging ever since she was a kitten.

Still, Kanga, who came from Saving Grace Rescue in San Francisco, looks like a happy cat, even just a year later.

Things have been going extra well lately, especially after Kanga met her new foster brother Hector.

Like Kanga, Hector was found in need of special care. When he was discovered as just a tiny kitten, Hector had a tail injury infested with maggots. The shelter gave him an emergency amputation, and though he’s now healing, he’s much happier. Plus, he’s getting along well in his foster home with Kanga.
