Rexie Roo has been defying the odds. After arriving at the Best Friends Lifesaving Center in Salt Lake City, a medical examination revealed that his front legs were crushed in several places and they were infected. In order to save his life, his front legs would have to be amputated. Rexie Roo was soon fostered and his loving home has helped him land on his own two feet!
Johnna I would adopt Rex to get like a hundred times over we were meant to be together I had been thinking about fostering for a couple months and then as soon as I saw the video of Rexy on the best friend's Instagram it it was just I was immediately drawn to him and I emailed best friends right away and met him in a couple hours and then the next day I got to bring him home I am really excited to take Rex home and get us comfortable in our new spot together and introduce him to my cat Kiki and just get settled in so one of our shelter partners a few hours away had put a play on Facebook about a cat that they had recently received that was pretty severely injured and needed urgent attention we saw that plea and our life-saving team jumped into action we picked him up the next morning and then our vet looked at him and unfortunately we decided that we weren't able to save his legs and they had to both be amputated for being a double amputee Rex he actually healed really quickly just a time spent with him and was really amazing to see his spirit and his personality really shine he was just such an inspiration to everybody who met him we all just loved him so much he loves his baby food and getting him moving with that husband really fun and we want to continue to get him moving and walking a little bit cuz he would just hang out and snuggle all day if he could but honestly my experience with him so far has been wonderful there of course are some things you have to change or make a little different but I think it's totally worth it for their quality of life and for the joy that he brings to me he's so brave and when he wants something he just goes for it which i think is really amazing he's just like the sweetest cat ever and he just like loves to snuggle and eat and so do i so we're a good match but it's just impossible not to fall in love with him he had my heart immediately and then just took a little while to get us all acclimated [Music] you [Music]
