Zo cute! Dit gehandicapte katje heeft de liefste gezichtsuitdrukkingen

Onze liefde voor katten hebben we nooit onder stoelen of banken gestoken. Nu kunnen we weer eentje aan het rijtje favorieten toevoegen, namelijk het driejarige katje Rexie! 

Gehandicapte kat Rexie

Als baby werd Rexie heel slecht behandeld door zijn eerste baasje. Dit resulteerde in een gebroken ruggengraat en een verlamming in zijn twee achterpoten. Gelukkig mag Rexie zich nu heel gelukkig prijzen met een eigenaar die wél goed voor hem zorgt.

Dasha Minaeva adopteerde het beestje nadat hij was gered en sinds dat moment zijn de twee onafscheidelijk. Dasha maakte zelfs een speciaal Instagram-account aan voor het beestje, waar hij momenteel al bijna 200.000 volgers heeft.

Now the pink tie is a part of his wheels outfit ? . Rexie doesn't uses the wheels all the time, just a few days a week for several minutes as an exercise for his leg muscles. He likes to walk without the wheels much more.

He doesn’t even know he’s handicapped. He does all the things other cats do. Only he’s unable to use the toilet or scratch his ears on his own. But that’s what his human is for!” aldus Dasha.

Sinds zijn adoptie is Rexie veranderd in de liefste kat ever – kijk maar eens naar dat lieve gezichtje! Door verschillende mensen krijgt hij als bijnaam ‘Cat-King of Bleps’. Mocht je je nu afvragen wat ‘blep’ betekent: dit is het moment wanneer dieren hun tong uit hun mondje hebben hangen.

#LearnAboutRexie A lot of people assume that the only proper way for Rexie and other cats in a similar condition to walk is using a wheelchair. But in fact, it's the other way round. Unlike dogs and a number of other animals, paralysed cats do not need a wheelchair to move around better and have a good quality of life. Most cats do feel better living as they are, without any additional object that we think might help them. Two-legged cats by no means are different from the normal ones, except for being slower and clumsier at times and having no ability to jump. But they do perfectly fine with those two legs they have. They're agile and mobile enough to do their daily cat things and if you put the cat in a wheelchair, it would limit those capabilities. So if you have a cat with rear end issues but who's moving around without any trouble, I would recommend letting him/her live as they are. Buying a wheelchair would be just a waste of money, learnt by the first hand experience. In case you're wondering where I got a wheelchair for Rexie, I bought it from a Ukrainian company Frakishtak. They make high quality custom things for special needs animals and ship worldwide. Just Google the name and you'll find them easily. To prevent sores or wearing fur off of a paralysed waist down cat that has to drag their feet as they walk, a drag bag can be used as an "alternative" to a wheelchair. Rexie doesn't have any issues with that so he doesn't have to wear one.

Nu je toch aan het einde van dit artikel bent beland, vind je het vast niet erg om een ander leuk katje te bekijken. Zo schreven we een tijdje geleden over het katje Luhu – de meest zielig kijkende kat ooit.
