A young couple passing by saw this bleeding cat already without its two front paws with a newborn kitten. They decided to help by taking both the mother cat and baby home.
Home for this young couple is shared with rescued cats. They pick up strays and get them adopted.
Kenggy was so named as without two front paws, she would stand balanced on her hind legs to look at the world around her -- like a kangaroo. Kenggy is short for Kangaroo.
A few months went by. Kenggy's kitten and other rescued strays got adopted but not Kenggy. Most adopters prefer cute kittens to adult cats, what more an adult cat without two front paws.
While checking an animal forum, EJ happened to read a posting about Kenggy and that she would be put back in the streets if no one wants her.
EJ made a decision to adopt Kenggy on the condition if Kenggy was willing. Contact to the young couple was quickly made and EJ went on a long drive to have a sniff-out with Kenggy.
During the sniff-out, Kenggy waddled across, stood up and looked intensely eye to eye at EJ who was seated cross-legged on the floor. Kenggy seemed to know what was the sniff-out about. When EJ got up to leave, Kenggy tried to follow. So Kenggy has decided. EJ was pleased.
And Kenggy came home as part of the gang on 10 January 2007 after her spaying operation, vaccination and check-up.
