Three Legs. Big Heart. Can’t Lose.

People, wantcha’ to meet Wallace! As you can see, having three out of four limbs doesn’t bother THIS prosh prowler one leetle beet.



“This is Wallace! He was rescued from the streets and had to have his front leg amputated. Now he lives in Washington, DC with his librarian, Mfred (that’s me). As we like to say, “three legs, big heart, can’t lose!” -Marcella F.

    Yay for Mfred and Wallace!!!! Please give that boy big hugs from me (and probably everyone else who sees his photos!). A very handsome marmalade cat; so glad his story ended happily!!

  3. Smartypants says:

    He’s beautiful! With all that floof, you can’t even see about his leg. A handsome and lucky cat!

    I still get a kick out of seeing my tripod using his phantom limb to ‘cover’ his food bowl when the offering is not to his liking.
    Tripods rule.

  18. Go, Wallace! Compared to us, you and your clan have so little baggage about these kinds of things.
    My 14 year-old cat’s a member of that club, too — hind left leg lost due to an injection site sarcoma from her kittenhood rabies vaccination. She can still outrun me, and has discovered a way to keep getting up onto the roof. She’s now 7 years tumor free, and fingers crossed.

    Way to go, Mfred, you and Wallace are both very lucky to have each other. He is surely a very handsome boy.

  20. One of ours has three legs as well 🙂

  21. Cute how he seemingly crosses his front paw.
