A local cat with a genetic condition who learned to walk on only two paws has found a forever home.

Back in August, a special cat with a severe genetic condition that left her back legs severely deformed, arrived at the Humane Society.

“TwoPaws” alternates between scooting along on her belly, and walking on her healthy two front legs.

The Humane Society’s Melanie Coulter says TwoPaws’ ability to walk on two legs displays an admirable level of resilience, and is inspirational to watch.

TwoPaws was sent to a foster home and during the foster period her foster family fell in love with her and decided to make her a permanent member of their family.

TwoPaws has found her forever home with Katie Chauvin and her family.

Katie notes “Although we hadn’t anticipated adopting when we began fostering, over the months that we’ve had her we’ve really become quite inseparable and she’s developed such an attachment to my family. She inspires us every day with her strength and resilience, and I’m always in awe when I think about all she’s overcome and how she has conquered each of the challenges she’s faced with so much perseverance and grace. We have such a deep admiration for her and have learned so many things about life just by watching her live hers. She is an absolute gift, and is such a beautiful and important member of our family. She just fits so perfectly. We have all fallen completely in love with her and are looking forward to many more years of giving her the forever that she so deserves.”
