Adopt Me! 'Wobble' Cat Is Ready to Stand on Her Own Four Feet
For every pet living with a happy family, there is an animal in a shelter waiting to find a loving home. So today, in honor of Adopt-A-Cat Month, we'd like you to meet Wobbles, a determined 1-year-old cat we met through

When Wobbles was rescued, the pretty kitty had an injury to her back leg that caused it to fuse in a straight position. According to Theresa Bachu of the For Animals rescue, Wobbles can't bend her leg, but that doesn't stop her from running, jumping and exploring like any normal cat. "She loves to chase toys and run up and down the stairs in her foster home," she says. "She's a very special girl." Full of affection, Wobbles would excel in any home full of energy, and she gets along with other cats, dogs and children.

Based in New York City, For Animals is a "trap, neuter, return" organization. Volunteers rescue stray or abandoned pets, take them to a vet for spay/neuter services and an evaluation, then place them in foster homes until they find a forever family. For Animals depends on donations to continue its rescue work, so visit its website to learn how you can help. is a non-profit that helps shelters, humane societies, SPCAs, pet rescue groups and pet adoption agencies advertise their homeless pets to adopters for free. We'll be featuring dogs and cats available for adoption through the service once monthly here on
