Then he was transferred to an animal welfare organization located in Utah City for assistance and medical care.
Due to his delicate condition, the rural animal shelter had no choice but to request medical assistance through their social media. Unfortunately, Rexie Roo’s front legs had to be amputated, as it was very difficult to save his limbs due to his severe fractures.

His incredible way of quickly adapting to his surroundings and recovering only left his adoptive parents in awe of his will to live. The shelter decided to document Rexie’s entire recovery process on Instagram, in order to help him find a forever home.

Cairistiona told Bored Panda:
I had never adopted a special needs animal before, so this was my first experience.
Rexie Roo now has a carefree, comfortable life; he is very happy and does all the activities of a normal cat. Her mother realized that Rexie was very influential on the internet, so she continued with her Instagram to keep her followers updated.
The initial purpose of her account was to share his inspiring story, and that people could realize the great example of his overcoming.
Also, they can see that pets with special needs can have a normal life, but they just need a chance to change their lives.
I hope his story can show people that all animals deserve love, even if they look a little different or move a little different. I wouldn’t change anything about him.
Rexie Roo has a particular way of walking and jumping, but he is still an extremely affectionate and loving cat with his family.
Rexie Roo is named for walking like a t-rex and jumping like a kangaroo. He surprised me so much the first time he jumped on my bed! If he wants something, he seeks it!
