This courageous tabby survived being hit by a car and having a leg amputated, but that’s hardly slowed him down or dampened his spirit. He’s ready for his forever home (submitted photo).

This courageous tabby survived being hit by a car and having a leg amputated, but that’s hardly slowed him down or dampened his spirit. He’s ready for his forever home (submitted photo).

Colonel’s story is one of a stray who ventured too far into the street and was hit by a passing car. The accident left him with a badly broken leg. Emergency Animal Medical Technicians found him lying in the road and rushed him to the trauma center at the Arizona Humane Society.

After a complicated surgery to amputate his injured leg, Colonel is proof that even three-legged cats can be agile. When this orange tabby isn’t exploring high shelves, he likes to shimmy up to the top level of the cat condo and he does so without a hitch. He also enjoys downtime spent watching sitcoms on the couch with his favorite people.

Meet Colonel at the AHS Sunnyslope Campus located at 9226 N. 13th Ave. His adoption fee is $40. For more information, call 602-997-7585 and ask for animal ID number A515280.
