Bijou the Orphan Kitten Being Supremely Cute

This is baby Bijou. She is an orphan and I am bottle feeding her. She is so cute she will cause your head to explode. She makes my head explode on a regular basis. :-) If you notice, her front legs are crooked. This is called radial hypoplasia. You can read about it more on: www.messybeast.com She was born this way by a chance mutation. I am going to make lots of videos documenting her growth and how she adapts to life with her disability. There is a breeder in Texas purposely breeding these deformed cats and it needs to be brought to the public’s attention. DO NOT buy a “twisty cat” from someone “breeding” them. It is unethical to breed cats with the intent to create these deformities. Bijou’s mother and brother’s and sisters are completely normal. The mother would not take care of her so I intervened. Thank you so much for watching!

    I think the Munchkin cats were started in a similar way. The only thing is that the Munchkin’s defect doesn’t hinder it’s quality of life like a cat with RH.

    She is walking around now and she seems to be doing good. I’ve never had one of these cats before so it’s an adventure for both of us.

    whenever my kitten Precious was starting to eat solids, it was tough. she hated it, and refused to eat them! but eventually, i got her to. so, good luck with your darling.

    Oh my gosh! I had never heard of such a disorder until Friday when i went to work at the local animal shelter. There they had 3 of these kittens. well, i feel in love instantly and talked my mom into coming down to see them. We brought home one yesterday. our ROO is 10 weeks old, very very playful. Both front legs and his tail are affected. Tail bent, and both front legs twisted in at the wrist, he walks on his elblows, and hops like a kangaroo! I will have to do a video!

    Bijou is gorgeous! I love cats with Radial Hypoplasia! They are the best! Sad about breeders though! I’m glad to see you loving her so much. Keep us up to date on how little Bijou is doing!

    That’s not a kitten- that is a RAT.

    But it doesn’t matter, because rodents are 100000x cuter than cats.

    Kittens- spoiled, smelly, selfish, disloyal loners.

    Rodents- small, cute, TRAINABLE, friends. And they don’t smell if you clean their cages.
