Hey everypawdy, it’s Wyatt Ray, your Tripawd Spokesdawg coming to you from the great country of Canada! And today I want to share a quick Tripawd Tuesday story about a super cool three-legged senior cat who visited us recently.
Meet Othello, the Three-Legged Senior Cat who Defies the Odds
Yeah, he’s a fine looking feline, isn’t he? The day we hung out with Stewie, Othello stopped by with his mom, Leone and his dad, Greg.
OK I’ll admit, I was so excited to see a CAT at my door that I went a little bonkers. That like never happens! But Othello didn’t seem to care though. He’s pretty brave.
Dad stayed inside to make sure I kept my cool, but mom ran outside and slammed the door behind her. Othello was such a great surprise, she just had to get to know him.
And what she learned amazed her: this cat from Naksup, British Columbia, is sixteen years young! Yeah, almost twice as old as ME! Don’t you think he looks like a kid?
Othello Gets Around
Leone says he got some serious injuries when he went on an outdoor adventure. He barely survived to become the strong, three-legged senior cat that he is today.
Since he lost his leg Othello doesn’t get to travel solo like he used to. But that’s OK, because now he has a cool ride and two adoring chauffeurs who take him everywhere they go. What a lucky cat!
I’m glad he stopped by, just wish I could have had longer to get to know him. I think we could have become friends.
