They found a 3-legged cat barely alive on the trail and gave him a forever home
A couple were hiking along a trail when they found this poor kitty struggling to move. If they didn't spot him, he likely wouldn't have survived the night... but now he's in a loving home!
"He was born without a leg. When we first found him we thought maybe an animal had bit his leg off. Once we checked him, we realized there was no open wound or even a scar," Trident's human told Love Meow.
Trident was found at the trailhead entrance for the Calico Tanks Trail Head in Red Rock Canyon, NV . "We do not know how long he was there but when he was found he was too weak to walk or even crawl."
They knew they had to save him. "We didn't think he would make it through the night and this is him after 12 hours of constant care."
"Because of the plaque, gingivitis and missing teeth, the vet can only estimate that he is anywhere from 6 months to 4 years."
Each day Trident got stronger and more trusting of his human rescuerers.
"He loves when we play with him. He really likes stringy type of toys. He loves biting and pulling on them. He has a very unique personality."
"He really enjoys laying to us when we watch TV. He tends to get really close to us and rests his head on us whenever he can."
He's a real love bug!
"He is very affectionate towards us. He gives us the most amazing looks and licks us."
He loves breakfast time and meowing loudly when his human parents come home. He's a very happy kitty and we think he knows how lucky he is.
"He truly is one of a kind."
For the people that have asked us if Trident meows.... Here is a video of him meowing right before lunch. WARNING: This video is overloaded with cuteness.
