Now you might look at photos of this adorable ball of fluff and say to yourself: "Oh, this just breaks my heart." And that's of course a totally normal response. But Pancake the two-legged cat is here to tell you that she isn't on this planet to break your heart; she is here to steal it. And she's going to snatch it right out your chest cavity with only two legs that don't slow her down in the slightest.
Pancake is one of our favorite animals on the Internet (yes, even more so than Wally the ridiculous Angora bunny), and we obsessively follow her on Facebook. And we thought that more people needed to know all about Pancake and we can only post so many photos of her to our mom's Facebook page before she starts telling us to "go outside." So E! Online readers: meet Pancake!
Pancake was born with skeletal deformities, which means she only has the use of two legs. But that doesn't make her any less mobile and clearly, it doesn't make her any less cute. Look at how stinking cute she is! We physically ache just looking at pictures and video of Pancake because she is so precious.
"She was born in a litter of kittens, and she only had two back legs. I was told it was a struggle finding a home for her," her owner writes on Facebook. "When she came home with me she was 8 weeks old, and she wasn't very active. She spent most of her first week on her back, looking up at us. When I fed her I spoon fed her because she didn't (wasn't able to?) roll over to her tummy. She would wake up in the middle of the night, a few times a night, so hungry. So I would get up and feed her. She very quickly started moving around and standing up though. And she hasn't stopped since!"
When you watch videos of Pancake, she acts like any other cat. She runs, she jumps, she chases toys and she purrs. It just takes her a little longer to get used to moving around with only two legs.
"She stands up to play. She jumps on my bed! She eats a lot. She uses a litter box. She likes to sleep on the bed with me. She chews on books. She likes to attack feet. I think she does things most any cat would do," insist Pancake's mom. "Some people that see her for the first time say that it is heartbreaking that she can't do this or that. I can understand that, however I don't feel the same way anymore. Seeing how far she has come in such a short period of time is actually exciting."
If you have already fallen in love with Pancake, which of course you have, you can follow her shenanigans on her Facebook page. Join the movement!
