Touching story.

Not sure if it goes here or not.

Genetic condition doesn't keep cat down

A Valley cat is getting thanks to a local rescue group.

Cricket has a rare genetic condition that caused his hind legs to be disfigured. The condition could have been corrected to some extent if his owners had gotten help.

About HALO Animal Rescue
(602) 971-9222

An otherwise healthy cat, Cricket's owners took him to be euthanized.

Enter Heather Allen of HALO.

"He's a normal cat in every other way," she said. "He just doesn't look like the rest.

"I've been taking care of cats for 10 years and I've never seen anything like that. I took him straight to the vet."

That vet recommended a specialist, who determined that at this point, there's not much that can be done.

That doesn't seem to bother Cricket too much. While it might take him a second to get his footing, Cricket gets around just fine.

Now that he's got a second chance at life, Allen says Cricket needs just one more thing.

"He just needs a home, preferably one that doesn't have steps, that has carpeting -- and people who will accept the way he is."

Sorry Didnt think about the sign in thing silly me
