Once a week, we will be featuring an extraordinary animal account on Instagram! Their story, the adorable pictures, and pawesome videos! This week's spotlight goes to Rex, The T-Rex Cat!
Meet your new favorite cat - Rex! Rex is an adorable ginger cat who happens to be missing his front two paws and his tail. When Rex was a kitten on a farm in Saskatchewan Canada, he lost both his front paws and tail due to frostbite. Rex didn't see a vet, his paws and tail fell off and he survived. When his new owner got him, he took Rex to the vet and was told Rex had healed up well and has a good quality of life. Rex's owner told I Can Has Cheezburger, "He's from a friend's farm and when I was out there, he just wouldn't leave my side he wanted pets." His owner almost mentioned that Rex often has low energy, is a cuddle monster, and constantly purring up a storm. Seems like Rex had chosen his forever human.
However, even without those front paws and tail, Rex is just as capable as any other cat, plays often, and is constantly seen in videos running around -- and he's fast!
This handsome cat is a warrior and we're absolutely head over heels in love! Follow Rex on Instagram for more adorableness!
