Pirate started out as a foster kitten. He had a peg leg and that's how he got his name. He was born this way, so it didn't really hinder him at all. The only problem was he would bang it on stuff when he jumped, so we had it removed. He does much better without the stub of a leg to slow him down.
Here is he as a kitten...He went to a couple of adopt-a-thons with our rescue organization, but he was so ornery. He would scream if someone touched him, like they were killing him. He was not trying to 'sell' himself :) It worked though...my sister, Auntie kept him.
Today Pirate is a happy mancat, almost 8 years old. He is at the vet today getting his teeth cleaned. We would appreciate some purrs for him.
