A THREE-legged cat from Kempsey who has already enchanted Instagram followers with his handsome looks is now the cover star of Cats Protection’s annual calendar.
Originally taken in by the charity’s Birmingham Adoption Centre, four-year-old ginger-and-white Mylo had been found struggling to walk around a garden not far from where his original owner lived.
He had a severe injury to his leg and sadly it became apparent that he had been abandoned. The kind person who found him arranged for his vet treatment and for him to be taken into the charity’s care.
Unfortunately Mylo’s injured leg had to be amputated but he has never let it hold him back.
He enjoys nothing more than making new feline friends in his Worcestershire neighbourhood, exploring his home in search of treats to sample and boxes to sit in or posing for more than 1100 followers on Instagram who tune in to find out his latest antics.
Owner Sarah Gooding said: “I came across Mylo on the Cats Protection website.
“He was very shy when I met him back in 2018, but within a couple of hours at home, was purring away on my lap.
He’s now my shadow and very agile on his three legs, although a bit wobbly when he first wakes up!
“Since moving to Kempsey, Mylo has been adjusting well to his new surroundings. Our new house has a gravel drive which he was a bit unsure on, but he seems to have it mastered now.”
