Rubbix is a little orange kitty that was born with crooked rear legs. The kitten can’t hide his delight at being able to walk and run on all four paws for the first time in his life.
The beautiful kitten and her sister Boo were delivered to the premises of Chatons Orphelins Montréal, a Canadian animal sanctuary, a few weeks ago. The shelter volunteers hoped to be able to provide the kittens with the care they need and to offer them a second shot at life.
Rubbix had a physical disability with his rear legs that was extremely visible, but he had the heart of a genuine warrior.
“Rubbix’s hind legs were turned 180 degrees and pointing in the other direction. He moved by kicking his front legs and kneeling on his rear knees ».
Rubbix, although having this abnormality in his legs, did not detect any differences from the other kittens and simply wanted to play.
The cat was always looking for attention and eager to play, and as soon as he spotted something move, he did his hardest to follow it.
Nothing could stop Rubbix from having a good time, so the rescue center sent him to an orthopedic expert to improve his quality of life.
The vet judged that surgery to repair the small boy’s rear legs was the best choice after multiple tests.
Celine expressed herself as follows:
“The sooner I get the procedure done, the better my chances of obtaining favorable outcomes are.”
Due to the stress in his tendons, his physical ailment deteriorated with time, necessitating immediate action.
“We wanted to give her every chance to enhance her quality of life so she could live a normal (pain-free) life.”
Little Rubbix was on his feet 24 hours after surgery, wandering around the room independently and taking his first steps.
He was so ecstatic that he continued expressing his delight at being able to move normally like a cat. Rubbix quickly sought to explore every area of his house; he wanted to wander about and was ecstatic with his newfound freedom.
