Meet Able, the cat from Bangkok who lost his front limbs to a tragic electric accident when he was just one year old.
The curious cat was hunting a bird when he jumped down onto a few lives wires and ended up with some very serious injuries the took his tail and front two legs away from him. Fortunately, Able’s keeper, 49-year-old Walai Sriboonvorakul, stepped in and made the cat his own. Often, disabled cats have sad, short lives if they are left too long fending for themselves on the streets of Bangkok.
“We called him ‘Able’ because he can do everything just like the other animals,” Able’s owner said about the inspiring story. Able walks like a funny kangaroo, hopping along on hind legs, as he does everything from climbing stairs, to chasing other cats, to reaching impressive heights with his sturdy hind legs. Able has a sibling named Fin Fin who can’t use her hind legs. The two cats with opposite leg problems complete each other and are simply inseparable.
Think it can’t get cuter? Able even has a sister named Fin Fin who can’t use her hind legs. The two cats with opposite leg problems complete each other and are simply inseparable.
