Two-Legged Kitten Wins Hearts on YouTube

A two-legged kitten is winning hearts on YouTube.

According to the Raising Mercury Facebook page, the tabby kitten was found near Edmond, Oklahoma in September of 2013.

His rescuers believe the 4-day-old kitten had been hit by a weed whacker. A rescue group called the Community Cat Coalition of Edmond was called upon to care for him.

Rescuers say despite the fact that he is missing his two front legs, he is a very active kitten. They have worked with him to teach him to run, jump and play. A video posted to YouTube shows Mercury conquering a set of kitty stairs, with the help of an enticing toy. Another video shows him tangling with a crinkly tunnel toy.

His rescuers say as Mercury grows older, he will need some sort of device to help him get around. That is something it appears they are still working on, although they encourage him to do as much as possible on his own.
