This Is Mercury, The Two-Legged Cat Who Won Our Hearts Forever


Although Mercury is now like your typical playful cat, life has not always been easy on the adorable two-legged cat. When he was just a four-day-old blind kitten, a weed whacker hit him and severely injured him, causing both his front legs to be amputated.
