Meet Mercury, the kitten with no front legs.

The young animal was left disabled at four days old after a collision with a weed whacker, but has not let that stop him having fun.

The jovial feline has been snapped in a series of images that have been posted on his dedicated Facebook page, Raising Mercury.

I’m not sure he needs them. He looks like a velociraptor.

Cats adapt, and Mercury has done it very well.
Thank God the vet decided not to kill him.
May he have a long and happy life.

That’s awesome! I love cats like that! We had one we called “Gossamer,” and he had some deformities, and one of them was an exceptionally long back leg which he put back behind his head so he could run. It was so funny! He was finally adopted by a young family who still have him today and say he’s the greatest mouser on their farm.
