BeBop


This handsome guy is our special little Simeon BeBop. He is a unique little "tri-pawed" boy who lost his back left leg at the young age of 6 weeks. He had been left hanging on a privacy fence for possibly two days by people who despised cats. His leg was very badly damaged (gangrene had set in) and it had to be removed. At 8 weeks, however, he was well on the mend - "bebopping" (thus, his nickname) all over the house, even up the stairs without hesitation! With the help and love of a very special vet, lots of prayers from our cat-loving family and friends, and an amazing inner strength, little BeBop healed quickly and has made an amazing recovery. -Bari @ Cat Happy

Bebop looks a lot like our Binks who we lost about a year ago. Bebop doesn't look like he lets his "tripod" status slow him up one bit!

It's inconceivable to me how someone can do such things to innocent baby animals! I'm so glad Bebop was rescued and found a forever home with you.

Bari Bless you for taking care of BeBop. It is absolutely amazing how animals handle their handicaps. I along with others just can't understand how people can be so cruel. Blast it, if you don't like cats just stay away from them.

Oh oh!!!! My OTW read that story!!

Her hair started all sticking up and her eyes got all big and hissy looking!!!

Um, I think it's a good thing she's never caught anyone doing something so mean and nasty and stupid 'cause she looks like she wants to swat them across the nose really good and use hissy words!

I'm glad BeBop got a good home and doesn't mind not having four legs. He looks like a lot of fun!

BeBop is a very handsome kitty.
Our friend had a kitty named Yardley (three feet to a yard, get it?) who lived a long and very full life as a tripod kitty!
We ♥ Bari for adopting BeBop and we were very touched by his story!
Meow for now ~ Daphne
