What’s your favorite animal? Cat? Rabbit? Rabbit-cat…? What do you mean you’ve never heard of the rabbit-cat?! They’re cats that are like, well, rabbits. Okay, okay – they don’t really exist. At least not as a species. But there is one little lady who fits the bill… Introducing Roux, the two-legged cat! Roux was born with just her two back legs. She has to scootch about and hop like a bunny to get about and it’s just about the most adorable little thing you’ve ever seen.
Roux was adopted by Jackie Deak Akey in Louisiana and has recently taken the internet by storm. She’s currently got 90,000 followers on Instagram! Jackie picked up little Roux (whose full given name is actually ‘Lil’ Bunny Sue Roux Hendrickson Dean Akey’) after her previous owners gave her up because of her deformity.
She’s 100% healthy though and aside from a slight issue burying her business in her litter tray, Roux doesn’t let her affliction impact her life and jumps about the place constantly, nice and happy.
See her in action!
