Disabled rescue kitten loves caring for tinier foster babies (Gallery)
Little Roo was born without elbow joints and had learned to rely on her hind legs to hop and walk.
Hence her name, she hops around like a kangaroo! Marnie Russ of National Kitten Coalition fell in love and immediately adopted her and gave her a loving home.
Roo amazed her human mom with her spirit and snuggly love!
And when she got home, Roo did something incredible. It all started with some foster babies.
Marnie constantly takes home foster kittens to help raise and adopt out.
"I notice a few weeks ago that she was cleaning the healthy kittens and nurturing them," Marnie told Love Meow. "Usually, older kitties don't want anything to do with the neonates, but Roo is desperate to be with them."
She demands to be let into the crate so she can snuggle with them and give them kisses.
"If I go in to feed them, she is always on my heels. I would like to think that Roo recognizes the need in them that she had when she was rescued."
"She doesn't fit into any stereotype I have with the kittens that have come through my door. I have never seen her hiss - nothing seems to scare her and she has yet to meet anyone or anything she doesn't like."
When Roo is with her foster babies, she's very happy. And the foster kittens look to her like a loving big sister.
She loves to give them baths.
And of course play!
"Since I have gotten her, she has been around at least a doze fosters... I have a feeling she will be helping with my foster babies for years to come," Marnie said.
She's very protective of her fur babies.
She makes sure the dog knows how to play with them.
