These Boots WERE Made For Walkin’!

Folks, this is Boots. Boots had some tough times in her young life, losing her two rear paws in an unknown accident. Learn more (and donate) here!

She got those little blue booties when she was 6 months old.

The Denver Post says Boots “will undergo further surgery this summer to reshape the amputated areas of her legs, after which she will be refitted for new, more permanent prosthetics.”

Boot’s Hoomin Megan Brocato says, “She’s hoping for pink. After all, she is a lady.”

    Maybe we should introduce Bootsie to Oscar the Bionicat…

  7. She made me think of this:

  8. It’s good that she’s getting new prosthetics. The ones she has now look just a tiny bit too long for her. It’s like she’s walking on stilts. And while that’s adorable, it can’t be the most comfortable thing to do all day.

    Thanks, Brinke!

  10. Darn those allergies…. and may the little lady get the pinkest, prettiest that they can make!

  11. Boots looks too busy and full of life to be too sad.

    What a sweet, determined kitty.

    Bless precious Boots and her loving hoomins. That’s what real love is all about, isn’t it? Planning on sending a donation on payday.

  14. We had a kitty found frozen to a bridge in our area in febuary, she lost her back feet and tail. Jack looks almost exatly like boots, they could be the same cat. The vets who cared for her adopted her she is spunky and happy now.

    Donation made. I hope Boots gets what she needs and that she has a long and happy life with her family.

  16. AWW 😀 I am so glad that dear sweet little Boots has a loving forever home where she can get around with her prosthetic legs without any trouble 😀

    I don’t have sound on this computer. Do those feet make the sound I’m imagining?

    Donna, that video of Jack is great – I LOL’ed with happiness when she started running and boinging around – she really doesn’t seem a bit bothered. She’s a rascal!
