Mercury is a kitten from Oklahoma who proves that cats don't need four legs to pounce and play.
The two-legged tabby was 4 days old and weighed just 5 ounces when he was discovered in a yard in September. He hadn't even opened his eyes yet.
He was missing his two front legs and all but one of his toes on his back legs.
His injuries are thought to be the result of a run-in with a weed whacker because neighbors had recently been doing yard work in the tall grass he was found in.
A local family took the tiny tabby to the vet where his wounds were treated, and then they brought him home.

They named him Mercury, bottle-fed him around the clock and cleaned his injuries multiple times a day. Despite his disabilities, he quickly grew into an otherwise healthy and playful kitten.(You can see Mercury in action in this video.)
