VIDEO: ‘Kangaroo Kitten’ Born with Deformed Legs

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

His name’s Skippy, and he’s three months old.

Skippy was born without a radius bone in his front legs, so he rests and hops on his back legs — similar to a kangaroo.

His condition doesn’t cause him pain, and is more of just a visual issue.

He’s a rescue cat, and is waiting for a foster family.

    He’s adorable. Wish I could take him but I have a 14 yr old cat with the same condition. Never stopped her from doing anything. Used to have a cereal shelf above my refrigerator, it was her favorite place to hide. Never could figure out how she got up there. :) I hope Skippy finds a loving forever home, he’ll bring his owners years of love.
