Most cats forced to live on the streets have a hard life. Beyond finding food and fresh water, street cats must also survive from malicious people, dogs, and cars. Yet somehow Pauly the cat managed to survive on the streets of Edmonton. What makes Pauly’s survival story even more incredible is that he was born with an extra pair of legs.

Pauly’s extra two legs aren’t functional and serve only as a hindrance to his movement. Yet despite this handicap, Pauly managed to live on his own until an animal rescue center found him. Now the animal shelter is raising money to pay for Pauly’s surgery so he can have his extra two legs removed. If you thought your life is tough, then you need to see what Pauly the cat went through just to live day to day.
