Dennis was brought to RESQ with his femur fractured. The bone had snapped off right at the neck. This caused elongation of the leg and the limb would drag along the ground. There was no way to save the leg except to amputate it.
Ordinarily it is very difficult for cats to adjust to a normal life without a hind leg. They require their hind legs when they are climbing or jumping, to escape from predators and to find food. Thus, with one leg amputated, Dennis was added to the RESQ Rehoming Centre.
To look at, Dennis most certainly doesn't seem like he is a special needs animal. He will get to wherever he needs, as long as he is motivated by food. When not doing that, he tries to get everyone's attention and love and cuddles. Have important work to do? You don't; if Dennis has decided thay he needs your love. His favourite ploy is to lie across anyone's book or laptop and ensure that no productive work gets done.
He has a sweet and winsome personality and gets along with just about anyone. If you'd like to adopt Dennis, please fill out the Cats' Adoption Typeform
