“It looked like someone shook up kittens parts in a can.” says Laura, Pretzel’s foster at Kitten Rescue based in Los Angeles, CA.

Pretzel and her two siblings were born and immediately dumped at a local LA shelter. Upon seeing them, it was it was apparent one of the reasons why.

They were born with serious genetic abnormalities that made just living a challenge. On the outside, their arms and legs were twisted awkwardly in making walking, in the future, impossible.

The problems on the inside were not immediately discernible until the first night when one of the kittens died. Within months, Curly Sue also died of a massive heart attack.

Pretzel was the lone survivor. Her will to live was strong. Her personality was no different than any other cat.

She didn’t care that her legs were useless and she had to crawl to reach laps. What mattered was that she got there.

Today, Pretzel is living in the perfect home with a perfect Mom. Pretzel is Michelle’s first cat, but she loves Pretzel so unconditionally that she wouldn’t have it any other way.
