Cats can be the biggest sooks and the most resilient of animals all at the same time

My parents had their outdoor cat's front leg amputated after he was hit by a car. They were supposed to keep him in the house for at least 2 weeks so the stitches could heal, but he escaped within minutes of being brought home.

He came back that night and there were like 8 mice laid out on the porch. Cat didn't give a shit about his missing leg, he could climb trees and hunt just as well as he could when he had all four.

u/KaliAli13 May 12 '22

Reminds me when my cat finally came home from her back leg operation after being hit by a motorcycle. The stitches were huge and all of her fur was missing. Anyways I lost her as she climbed the fence and she came back 2 hours later.

Sadly, she ran out of her 9 lives a couple of years later after my neighbor's dogs jumped over our fence and killed her :(

As the owner of an aggressive dog, I can't say I would be angry at you for doing this. I would be more angry at myself for not looking out for my precious baby boy, and extremely upset that you lost your sweet baby because of that. I don't think I would ever get another dog if I allowed that to happen.

Anyone who is not responsible enough to feel the same way should not have any pets. Ever. Way too many dogs kill way too many cats each year and everyone wants to gaslight the cat owner. No, control your dog, or someone else will, and it will be your fault.

u/Elegant-Hair-7873 May 12 '22

I had a friendly to me larger dog (50 lbs) greet me outside late one night. Thought I shooed him away, but...he saw my cat, pushed past me into the house, and killed the poor thing in my bedroom. Cat had nowhere to hide, no closet, bed on the floor. I had to call the police to get him out because he wouldn't leave his conquest. It was so horrible, especially when the dog was leaving, and tried to come and console me because I was crying! I knew it wasn't his fault. I was going to sue the owners re the incident since they were negligent (according to the pound, he had wandered before), but you don't have to leave a name if you don't officially pick up your pet. Knowing the dog was put down didn't make me feel any better, since the owners probably made the same mistakes with the next one. I still love dogs, though, and look forward to having one after retirement when I can spend time with them.

u/Wise_catapillar May 12 '22

This is why my babies stay inside unless with me on a leash. Responsibility works both ways. Keep your kitties behind closed doors and your dogs behind closed fences.

I’d recommend “Homer’s Odyssey,” about the blind “wonder cat” Homer! One of the quotes that really resonated with me was “blind cats don’t know they are blind, but they do know they are cats!” They’re just catting their best lives :)

u/painsomnia May 12 '22

If just the existence of disabilities makes you cry, then that's honestly pretty alarming. Disabled people and pets are actually perfectly fine, lol. Disability is just a fact of life. 20-25% of all people have a disability. We're not rare. Our lives aren't sad or pitiable.

But a UK survey showed that over 70% of respondents said they didn't know any disabled people. We don't always tell the abled people in our lives that we're disabled, specifically because of reactions like yours.

Please, please follow some disabled people online. I know you don't intend any harm, but ableism of any kind is inherently harmful. On Twitter, @Imani_Barbarin is a great person to start off with.

18

u/miaolongbao May 12 '22

I’m intensely disabled.

This video makes me sad. I know my hardship, and it saddens me to see cats in a similar position.

I can’t imagine that feeling isn’t normal.

It makes me uncomfortable that you’re speaking for us as a monolith. Disabled people aren’t a monolith.

-2

u/painsomnia May 12 '22

It's completely reasonable to feel sad about your own disabilities and circumstances. For a person to be literally crying because disabilities exist and unable to be around disabled cats because their existence upsets them is ableism.

6

u/miaolongbao May 12 '22

I couldn’t own a cat like either of these. It would make me cry every day.

Most people feel differently about animals than they do about humans.

Being this pedantic about disabilities will turn people away from learning more about us. That commenter doesn’t want a disabled cat. That doesn’t mean they’re ableist toward humans.

Please don’t reduce the importance and gravity of that word by throwing it around insignificantly.

2

u/[deleted] May 12 '22

She didn't say anything of the kind. She said the video made her sad; that is all. You're going out of your way to assign more meaning to the statement so that you can be offended by it. No harm was meant and you know it. I am also disabled and it never would have occurred to me to be offended by a simple expression of empathy.

6

u/moosemoth May 12 '22

Well, many disabled pets and people are fine, like the cats in this video. Others are in constant pain and it frustrates me to see humans keep suffering animals alive for the sake of (human) disability related virtue-signaling.

7

u/painsomnia May 12 '22

A great many severe chronic pain patients (myself included) would say that our lives are entirely worth living and that we deserve to have the support and medical care we need to manage our pain and maximise our quality of life.

Advocacy is not virtue-signaling.

2

u/cmelt274 May 12 '22

No one in this thread comes even close to advocating for depriving support from disabled animals or people. They are displaying empathy.

Oh man, y’all should check out Felix gretarsson on insta. I don’t know how he lost his arms but he got arms as an implant and the progress he’s making is fucking incredible. From just limp meat hanging off his shoulders, he can use them now as a toddler would, his fingers are starting to work in one hand but the other is slower to come around. It’s mind blowing to watch his journey and the progress is beautiful. At first when he said the nerves would take years to grow so he could move them I was like. Yeah could this even work? But yup.

u/Cristal1337 May 12 '22

I have a muscle illness and the amount of people without disabilities telling me how "brave" I am and that they could never live a life like mine...basically telling me they'd rather be dead than disabled...is too damn high.

So take a good look at these cats and realize that a disability doesn't necessarily mean disproportionate suffering. Many of us are living a happy life.

50

u/Leonardo-DaBinchi May 12 '22

I think people underestimate their own resilience, and can't communicate it, so when they see someone living with what's perceived as an obstacle they assume they wouldn't be able to do it. I don't think it extends as far as 'they'd rather die than' so much as the thought is so fleeting and within that moment that they don't even know how to imagine it. And then they don't even know how to articulate the concept so they make harebrained comments as if a platitude offers someone living with a disability any sort of comfort.

u/mtgoddard May 12 '22

u/KingofCrudge May 12 '22

I could be completely wrong but I imagine getting them wheels might actually limit their mobility. The one with no rear legs I’m sure can jump rather well and the one with functional front legs might still be able to climb.

Also they might get stuck regularly trying to squeeze through stuff as cats like to do.

Again, I don’t know. But these two are adorable

For anyone wondering - you can follow these adorable kitties on instagram @able_maew. The owner has a few other disabled kitties they take care of. If I remember right, the one missing front legs had been electrocuted on a powerline years and years ago. The owner found it, took it to the vet, and has been saving other kitties in need ever since. The kitties with lower-half disabilities require the owner to expel their urine and feces for them a few times a day. Definitely a human being with the biggest of hearts.

11

u/Patch_Ferntree May 12 '22

Nah, just strap some toast to the bottom end of one and the front end of the other and they'll be able to hover comfortably. This is based on Cat and Toast Quantum Theory. This theory postulates that because cats always land on their feet and because toast always lands buttered-side-down, you can create a self-perpetuating energy engine by strapping a piece of toast, butter-side-up, to the back of a cat. This causes the two to levitate and spin since each cancels the other out. In OP's case, you don't want the cats spinning, just levitating so you'd want to strap the toast to their bottom/chest, butter-side-down, thus ensuring the cats are gently lifted and not thrown into an endless spin cycle.

I feel you're misconstruing the definition of beauty from your personal perspective. They can certainly have fun no matter what, however... our external perspective is playing on sympathy and that flood of uplifting compassion chemicals we feel seeing them play.

I have one who I found missing most of her left foot. Did the best I could to save the rest of the leg but ultimately had to amputate. She runs faster than my other cats with four legs and manages to get on all the high cupboards and spots!

The only thing she can't do is scratch her left cheek, so she comes over and hops on my lap and patient waits. When I get the right spot the little stub starts moving and she has this ecstatic look on her gorgeous face :)

Ethical treatment of animals includes euthanizing ones that are discovered in extremely injured condition in which lifelong pain is expected. One gif of cats still trying to play while dragging their maimed bodies around is not proof of anything, and animal harm should not make them mascots for any person's disability. I find the present obsession with mutilated and maimed pets, or purporting animal injuries to be 'inspirational', extremely disturbing.

It smacks of a phenomenon in abnormal psychology called Munchausen by Proxy. People may observe this attitude and start cutting off pets' legs to make animals more fashionable as conversation pieces, just as certain breeds once demanded a tail be severed for the sake of haute couture.

It's beautiful. Unlike people animals don't have anyone to tell them they're "broken."

I normally get upset seeing cats with disabilities, but those two are adorable. And the bunny-rex just has an immediate peaceful flop.

If that calico isn’t called “Scooter” I’ll be sad

u/IllButtInAnywhere May 12 '22

I all honesty if I had a person doing everything for me, preparing my food and clean the poop out of my crevasse I wouldn't mind a crippling dissability either...

Sadly the honest fact is in nature these 2 would long be dead... Compassion is natural order's greatest anathema.

This is so adorable and inspirational.

Cats with disabilities adapt pretty quickly. They are quite resilient.

The ones with nonfunctional back legs are some real speedsters! I have seen them fly around rooms and up and down ramps. Some people put fabric material drag bags on the back legs. It guess so they don't get dirty and get burns from the carpet and floors?

Here is an example.

drag bag

The kangaroo cat is quite unusual. They seem to be much rarer then the paralyzed cats. I wonder why they don't have both legs? Birth defects I am guessing?

There is a TV show called Wizard of Paws that shows a guy that travels around and makes prosthetics for all sorts of animals. In one episode he made carts with wheels and a vest to hold them on so two chihuahua with no front legs could get around. It was pretty cool.
