If you live in the Seattle, Washington area and are in the market for a cat, I would like you to consider Oscar. Even though I already have more pets than I have space (can you really have too many pets?), I still often find myself perusing Petfinder.com. I ran across this 12 year old guy and fell in love. Why did I fall in love you ask? Could it be his vampire fang like front teeth? That’s definitely part of it (Edward Cullen anyone?). Could it be his declawaedness? That could be a consideration. Is it his unique meow? Maybe. All those things make him a great companion for a forever friend. The thing that put it over the top for me is the fact that he only has three legs. I am a sucker for three-legged babies, as evidenced by the fact that I have had two of them. They never seem to let their lack of a limb get them down or stop them. Oscar is no different, running around and acting as if all four legs were present. I wish I had the space to bring him into my home. If you do, the Seattle Animal Shelter can give you all of the information or find him at Oscar at Petfiner.com.
Thank You For Your Consideration (and Oscar thanks you).

I found this great story courtesy of Cute Overload. I did a little more research and found an update at Arc For Wildlife. Given my affinity for three legged cats, there was no way I could pass up a one legged pigeon who fosters other orphaned and injured animals story.
Five tiny baby bunnies were brought into Wild Rose Rescue Ranch in Texas after being attacked by a dog. Two of the five babies died and the other three were not doing well until they met Noah. Noah is a non-releasable one legged homing-pigeon. Noah spent most of his time by the bunnies cage after they were brought in. One morning there were only two babies found in the cage. The third baby had crawled through the cage bars and settled himself comfortably under Noah’s wing. The other two soon joined the first and all three spent their time snuggled safely under Noah’s protection. When the babies started to move out from under Noah’s wing he would use his beak to guide them back under. The babies health quickly improved thanks to Noah’s loving kindness. They grew up happy and healthy and Noah now fosters other sick and injured animals that come into Rose Rescue Ranch. What a great story of inter-species love and caring. Way to go Noah.
Thank You For Your Consideration,
