Here’s Anakin playing with the cat toy, Da Bird! This is by far his favorite toy. Watch Ani jump & hop to catch Da Bird! I was amazed the first time I saw him jump with both feet off the ground. There really is nothing he can’t do! Anakin is Awesome!
Anakin’s rescuer and petmom Carrie Hawks says:
It’s been asked if this hurts Anakin and also asked if this can cause his rectal problems… No, he is not hurting himself at all. We play with Anakin with Da Bird only on the carpet and only for short periods of time. He isn’t jumping all the time. More than one vet has told us that the amount of playing or climbing Ani does has no effect on his rectal problems and can not cause it. This is not an everyday game for Ani. It’s just a once in a while game for him & we keep him low to the ground & drag Da Bird. This was just to get a little video of him jumping after we saw him jumping when we swung Da Bird for the other cats.
Meet Anakin! Ani is a two legged cat, born without a pelvis or back legs but that doesn’t stop him. He is full of love & life! My family and I rescued Anakin [when he was a young homeless kitten] and I am caring for him. My family and I are lifelong animal lovers and will give Ani the absolute best possible home, love and care.
