Our friend Anakin the amazing 2 legged miracle cat – born without a pelvis and hind legs – is back, to help send out the old year and ring in the new. Anakin is seen playing under the Christmas tree before the decorations are taken down and put away for another year, in a new video uploaded on December 30.

Ani’s petmom and rescuer, Carrie Hawks, writes: “Anakin loves to lounge and play under the Christmas tree. Here’s Ani attacking the tree skirt and also the tree branches. He didn’t attack the tree as much as he usually does because I was watching him. At the end of the video Trixie comes in the living room and Anakin run off after her.”

Carrie Hawks is rescuer and petmom to Anakin, the miracle cat born without a pelvis or hind legs. Anakin was rescued in 2012 when Carrie found him as a small kitten, all on his own, coming to eat at a feeding station behind her father’s place of business. Anakin is in good health, despite his uunusual condition, and leads a full and normal life.

Carrie writes about Anakin, saying:

“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 past 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.”
