Corky the Cradle Cat
Meet Corky the Cradle Cat, from an abandoned deformed kitten to a world wide inspiration of courage, love and determination.
March 20th, 2012 CATS Cradle Shelter in Fargo, ND rescued a beautiful 7 month old kitten from the Moorhead Pound. We were told by the staff at the pound that he was found dragging himself down a sidewalk on Main Avenue in Moorhead due to a congenital deformity. He was born with backwards, twisted back legs. After a search for a veterinarian surgeon, Corky had 4 surgeries to correct his condition, he ultimately lost his left rear leg but he does not let it bother him, Corky is now running, playing and even putting the chase on his four legged siblings and is now living a "purrfectly" normal life in the home of one of the Directors of the shelter that saved him from euthanazia.
Corkys story has inspired people from all over the world, he has friends in Egypt, Israel, England, Holland, Italy, France, Germany, Australia, Canada, Mexico, United Arab Emirates, South Africa, and many more countries around the world.
He has received emails from cancer patients who had given up hope and now have been inspired to fight their illness, encouraged people to become more proactive and volunteer in their rescue communities, helped to spread awareness to the plight of other cats in need of rescue, helped find homes for urgent cats, and because of Corkys story, many kittens with similar conditions are now getting treatment rather than automatically being euthanized.
Corky is the perfect symbol of motivation, inspiration, love, and hope. From him, we have learned that one cat cannot change the world, but we truly can change the world for one cat. We are now TEAM CORKY, won't you join the team?
