Rescued Kitten Gains New Life With Prosthetic Leg

(Click here to watch if video doesn't load)

Braveheart the kitten and his sister have been given a remarkable second chance at life, thanks to the kind folks at Almost Home Adoptions, a non-profit cat rescue located in Westminster, Colo.

The pair were found tangled in a rosebush after being abandoned by their mother. Braveheart's umbilical cord was wrapped so tightly around his legs, that his hind paw had to be amputated and fitted with a prosthesis. The incredible bionic kitty and his sis are now doing much better, however more surgery may be required for his leg. Understandably, the procedures are costing the rescue thousands of dollars, and they are accepting donations to help defray the cost.

Braveheart's foster dad tells 9 News, "Never give up, they can always be saved. I think it feels awesome. It feels like when you look at them where they've been and they probably wouldn't have been here without people like Almost Home Adoptions."
