Meet Three Legged Kitty Enrique

Three legged cat Enrique was adopted from Santa Fe animal shelter

In my more than five years of a professional pet sitting business Pet Angel, LLC or, as my clients call me Pet Angel Irina, I had a chance to care of a couple of three legged cats. I can tell, they do not feel themselves disabled! They are fast, playful, and they developed some other parts of the body to use for play or hunt: rare legs, mouth. They are very affectionate and thankful to people who family they belong after adoption.

Enrique was adopted by his Mom Alison O. from Santa Fe Animal Shelter . His original name was “Cheyenne”, as they thought he was a female. He had arrived three months before with a respiratory infection and a lame front leg, which was removed right away. He got treatment and was neutered.

Enrique, named after Alison’s father name Eric, was very shy at first couple weeks at his new home. Even he was free to roam in apartment, he was somewhat frightened and withdrawn. Slowly, he let his guard down and became more playful and affectionate.
