“Duck” is a little tabby kitten with a big personality and an even bigger zest for life.
The unusual-looking kitten ʟᴏsᴛ her front legs after sustaining a ᴛᴇʀʀɪʙʟᴇ ɪɴᴊᴜʀʏ; she was found with both legs ɪʀʀᴇᴘᴀʀᴀʙʟʏ mangled and was rushed to a vet clinic, where her legs had to be ᴀᴍᴘᴜᴛᴀᴛᴇᴅ to sᴀᴠᴇ her ʟɪꜰᴇ.
But despite ʟᴏsɪɴɢ her two front legs, Duck has never ʟᴏsᴛ her drive or love of life.

According to Love Meow, Duck’s pet parent has stated that they sᴜsᴘᴇᴄᴛ she sustained her ɪɴᴊᴜʀɪᴇs by snuggling up inside a car’s engine bay, though nobody can be sure what happened.
After being taken to the clinic and undergoing sᴜʀɢᴇʀʏ, she was placed in a foster home to give her time to heal, recover, and get used to her new way of life while receiving love and affection.
Though it was only supposed to be a temporary placement, Duck soon charmed the entire family and cemented her place as a permanent family member.
Despite her ᴛᴇʀʀɪʙʟᴇ ᴀᴄᴄɪᴅᴇɴᴛ and ᴛʀᴀɢɪᴄ ʟɪᴍʙ ʟᴏss, Duck seemed happy and filled with energy, and her happiness rubbed off on everyone in the house.

Instead, she met every new challenge with positivity and determination and soon learned how to get around the house independently by using her hind legs and tail.
The family offered Duck a kitty ᴡʜᴇᴇʟᴄʜᴀɪʀ, but she was never a fan of it.
The little kitty prefers the mobility she’s achieved by walking on her hind legs and using her tail for balance.
As soon as she cracked the code of best using her back legs and tail, she began exploring the house and rushing back and forth across the floor.
She’s been able to reach incredible speeds and is now zooming around the house and the yard all day.
Apart From Her Humans, Duck’s New Family Also Includes Another Cat, Three Pups, And Six Hens.
Though you would think that Duck would relate the most to either her fellow kitty sibling or her fellow two-legged avian sisters, she’s most drawn to the pups of the family.
The family documented Duck’s journey on social media, sharing photos and videos of her adorable antics and heartwarming milestones.
Duck’s followers grew by the thousands, and her story inspired and uplifted people worldwide.
Today, Duck is a happy, healthy, and thriving cat who continues to defy the odds and amaze everyone who knows her.
She has shown us that no matter what challenges we face in life, we can overcome them with love, support, and determination and find our way to happiness and fulfillment.
