1. You’ve probably seen this video of a cat going downstairs on her front paws like a ninja.
2. Here’s her descent again in super-slomo.
3. The ingenious cat’s name is Boots. BuzzFeed caught up with Megan Brocato, a human who lives with Boots in Colorado.
“Boots came to live with me when she was about 5 - 6 weeks old,” Megan told BuzzFeed. “She was picked up by the awesome volunteers from Life is Better Rescue when she was only 10 days old.
“She had been passed up by other rescue groups because she was missing her rear paws. We believe this was an accident - perhaps she’d been closed in a door, or a recliner, something mechanical. We don’t believe it was purposeful human intervention.”
4. “A vet in Denver fitted her for “house slippers” (the blue prosthetics) when she was 6 months old.”
5. “It was tough as she re-learned how to walk. But as you can see from our video, she has no problem now.”
“Now that she is finished growing, she will need surgery to correct and smooth out the bone from her injuries.”
6. Boots, we can’t wait to see what you do next.
