How did you first meet Roux?
I work at a wonderful vet clinic in uptown New Orleans, and one of our clients runs an animal rescue. In October of 2014, this client was contacted by a shelter outside of New Orleans that a two-legged cat had been surrendered, and the shelter was wondering if she could be interested in rescuing her. Unable to rescue the cat herself, she emailed my clinic a photo. When I saw her it was absolutely love at first sight. Roux was brought to the clinic the next day and I took her home that night.
Why was Roux surrendered?
I had heard that the reason she was surrendered to the shelter was because she didnâ€™t bury her poop in the litter box. This breaks my heart because she certainly tries as best she can with her nubs every time. They just are unfortunately not long enough to reach the litter. Also, in addition to her lack of front legs, she has a cute little bobtail that is most likely a congenital abnormality as well.
