Who’d have guessed that this crooked chunky lovely kitty was once on the verge of death? Pitoe, a British shorthair cat, was fortunate enough to be taken to the vet, where she began a new chapter in her life.
Pitoe, a four-year-old British shorthair, was nearly euthanized when she was a kitten because no one wanted her.
A pet salesman figured no one would want a cat with a crooked back, so he bought the lovely feline with severe scoliosis into a veterinarian clinic.
Thankfully, veterinarian Marie had a different opinion.
Instead of euthanizing Pitoe, Marie thought that her grandparents would be the ideal place for the chubby feline.
Pitoe, who was unable to move properly due to an ineffective hind leg, became the ideal choice for the grandparents, who were looking for a low-maintenance kitty.
Pitoe’s body is short and spherical due to her condition, therefore she doesn’t appear overweight.
Marie is overjoyed to have introduced the cat to her grandmother and grandfather, and she has launched an Instagram profile to document the cat’s daily activities.
Marie shared an X-ray of the cat’s spine, which showed the curvature.
“My grandparents, who enjoy animals, had wanted a cat for a long time but were hesitant to adopt one because they were afraid it might jump over their apartment’s balcony and kill itself,” she wrote.
“Because of her scoliosis, my mother realized Pitoe would probably be a very quiet cat.”
Pitoe is an animated cat who can ‘waddle, run, play, and climb like a pro’ despite the curve in her spine preventing her from jumping.
“She’s completely spoiled rotten, to be honest, because my grandparents are at home most of the day,” Marie continued.
“As a result, the majority of their attention is focused on Pitoe, who joyfully accepts it.”
“She is well cared for, receives a lot of follow-ups, and – most importantly – is happy and pain-free,” Marie concluded.
We’re overjoyed for Pitoe.
