Miracle kitty Anakin, born without a pelvis or hind legs, was rescued by Carrie Hawks last year when he was a tiny kitten. Carrie brought the kitten home when she discovered him coming to eat at a feeding station. Once Anakin was big and strong enough, he joined the rest of Carrie’s cats and has the run of the house. Anakin is healthy and highly mobile, and lives a mostly normal life.

In this video I’m answering a few of the questions most asked about Anakin. Can Anakin Run? Why doesn’t he have Wheels? Does Anakin Climb well? How does he get down from where he’s climbed? This was just to get a little video of Anakin running. I do not usually make him run unless he wants to. All of my kitties will run for Treats and as you can see Anakin runs great! Right now, Anakin gets around just fine without wheels. Wheels would hinder his ability to climb his cat tower and his freedom to go where he wants to go in our home. When Ani runs he holds his behind up off the floor. It looks like his backend is hovering when he runs. We will definitely get him wheels when he is older if he needs them. Anakin would never be able to climb his cat tower dragging wheels behind him. He is very happy to be able to climb where he wants to like the couch, chairs, our bed, and of course his cat tower. Anakin hops down from wherever he has climbed with no problems at all.
