For a stray kitten in Rochester, Minnesota, things are starting to turn around. The young orange kitten was discovered by a construction worker. Unfortunately, both of the kitten’s back legs were broken.

But the kitten has been given a second chance, thanks to the folks at Heritage Pet Hospital. The kitten underwent surgery and metal rods were inserted in his legs. Thanks to his new metal additions, the kitten was named Rodknee.

Rodknee is recovering well, and there’s even better news to this story. An adoptive family is ready to bring Rodknee home once he’s healed. Could a stray kitten have asked for anything more?
