I'm staying in Johannesburg with two of my sisters at the moment and they are born rescue warriors. Cats and dogs. Here I've posted pictures of two of their cats, Snowbell and Misty or as I know them, White cat and tripod. They have a Scottish terrier that is blind in one eye too. All were rescued from the SPCA.
These animals are so adept at getting around that it is amazing. They say that people who are blind can "See" with their fingers. God has, in his infinite mercy endowed his creatures with incredible compensatory abilities. As you can see, Snowbell has feet that bend the wrong way so she walks on the back of her "hands" but can climb trees just like any normal cat.
How did Snowbell land up with such deformed front feet? As far as I can ascertain she was born that way. Tripod was a stray that was rescued by the SPCA in the condition she is now.
Crippled? Not really, just adapting to what the rest of us take for granted.
God bless those who meet the challenges of life with faith and trust in God no matter what they have to deal with.
