Anakin & Mika Playing

A new video visits two special cats, who are new siblings to one another, at play. Featured are the famed Anakin, intrepid miracle cat born without a pelvis or hind legs, and his new brother Mika, who is missing portions of his hind legs, and who the boys’ petmom Carrie Hawks rescued from a Texas shelter.

Carrie Hawks is rescuer and petmom to miracle kitty Anakin  who was rescued when Carrie found him as a small kitten, all on his own, coming to eat at a feeding station. Anakin is in good health, despite his condition, and leads a full and normal life. Not long ago, Carrie adopted another special boy, Mika, who she rescued from a Texas shelter and brought to her Florida home.

Carrie is looking in to a prosthetic for Mika and is in the process of filling out forms and waiting for a casting kit to arrive.

Carrie Hawks writes:

“How are Anakin & Mika getting along now? Just like two little brothers! Here they are playing around “The Favorite Chair”. Ani shows off his upper body strength hanging from the back of the chair. Mika & Ani have a little slap, bite fight in the window and of course Anakin has to get the last bite. Then they both relax on the floor, Anakin making happy feet in his leopard print bed & Mika sniffs the camera and stretches out for a nap. How sweet are they!

“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 and I am caring for him. Also Meet Mika! Anakin’s New Brother from another Mother! We rescued Mika from a Texas Animal Shelter. Mika was born with 3/4 of a tail, all of one back leg except for the actual foot part where the pads and toes would be, and his other back leg stops a little ways passed his knee and just rounds off at the end. My family and I are lifelong animal lovers and will give Ani & Mika the absolute best possible home, love and care.”
