Many Energies, 3 Persons, 2 Natures, 1 God, 1 Church, 1 Baptism, and 1 Cup. The Son begotten only from the Father, the Spirit proceeding only from the Father, Each glorifying the Other. The Son sends the Spirit, the Spirit Reveals the Son, the Father is seen in the Son. The Spirit spoke through the Prophets and Fathers and does so even today.

Kitty Born without Back Legs Never Lets it Stop Him

Anakin is a two legged cat, born without a pelvis or back legs but that doesn’t stop him. He doesn’t think he is disabled… just differently abled.



Ani’s story by Carrie Hawks:

My family and I rescued Anakin and I am caring for him. My family and I are lifelong animal lovers and will give Ani the absolute best possible home, love and care. I will be posting updates, photos and videos of Anakin on his Facebook page, Twitter and YouTube as he grows.

We have a new kitten! A very special new kitten. I wasn’t looking to get another cat right now but you know how these things just happen…. About two weeks ago a kitten without back legs started coming over to eat with the other feral cats at my dad’s work. My first few trips to attempt to catch it didn’t work out. Then Thursday (5/31), We went to see if this was the day we could catch it. The kitten was cowering in the bushes and I climbed into the bushes and pulled the kitten out. We brought the kitten home and I set it up in our hall bathroom, exactly like I did with Trixie & Pixie two years earlier.

Friday morning (6/1) I took him to our vet as soon as they opened. Our vet said she has never seen anything like him before and he is amazing and that it’s also amazing that his mother took care of him even with his handicap. She examined him and he is a little boy, approximately 6 to 8 weeks old and it in really good health. Two xrays on him showed he was born with no pelvis or back legs. We let him walk around the room for a minute to see how he moves. He positions his front legs at an angle towards the middle of his body and balances his backend in the air with the use of his tail touching the ground if he needs it. He gets around really well that way and is pretty quick too. The xray also showed that his insides were not malformed, last was the feline leukemia test. He’s came back negative. So we got him vaccinated, dewormed and a little flea meds and unless we have any problems with him, he goes back to the vet in three weeks.

Now, he is home getting comfy in his little bathroom and will be there for a while till he is bigger, stronger and ready to be socialized with the other cats and our dog. He is such a sweet calm little guy


He is happy to cuddle in our laps and purrs really loud. He likes to play with a little toy mouse and also chase a beaded necklaces around on the floor. We have decided to name him Anakin and will be calling him “Ani” (yes after Anakin Skywalker


Ani walking. He’s got awesome balance!


Anakin LOVES Friskies Cat Fishing game on the iPad. He doesn’t care too much to catch the slow fish but really likes to go after the faster ones.

Videos of little Anakin in action!

I tried looking for a medieval depiction of cats being burned for their evilness, but I could not find one. I will just post this.

Largest living cat recorded by The Guinness Book of World Records
http://www.guinnessworldrecords.com/world-records/largest-living-cat


Who: Hercules
Where: United States Myrtle Beach
When: 01 January 2013
Breed: Liger (Remember Napoleon Dynamite  :laugh: )

Quote
The largest living cat is Hercules, an adult male liger (lion x tigress hybrid) currently housed at Myrtle Beach Safari, a wildlife reserve in South Carolina, USA. In total length, he measures 3.33 m (131 in), stands 1.25 m (49 in) at the shoulder, and weighs 418.2 kg (922 lb).



Quote
Ligers are generally larger than their two parental species. In contrast, tigons, hybrids resulting from the reciprocal cross (tiger x lioness), are often smaller.  He is pictured here with Moksha Bybee, an animal trainer from the wildlife reserve.

The lynx is by far one of my all time favorite big cats. You can't hide from them, the way their vision works is amazing. It can bend, if you try to hide behind a tree, they can still see you.

Oh come on, using the term gay as a derogatory adjective has to be in violation of the forum rules. I issue you both a warning.  :police:
