A Special Mancat Monday

As always, my boy Evan is here today for none other than Mancat Monday.


With his hind limbs paralysis, I have always been in the habit of calling Evan a special needs cat. However, recently I have been seeing the term specially abled used more and more frequently, and I am now extremely fond of this title. Evan may have special needs due to his condition, but he is indeed far more aptly described as specially abled.

Can Evan ambulate on four legs? No. But, that doesn't stop him from being anything less than a perfect cat. Thanks to his determination and innovation, Evan pulls himself up onto stools, couches, beds, and even jumps off of things at least as high as my waist. I used to panic and run to his aid when he'd pull such stunts. That is, until I realized they weren't stunts at all. They were Evan. They were his way of making do, his way of thriving and loving life. They were why he is specially abled.


No matter what kind of abled you are, we wish you a beautiful day!

Our Tip of the Day:
So that you're prepared for any potential medical emergency when it comes to your kitty or pup, always be sure to know and/or have immediate access to you veterinarian's phone number, as well as the nearest emergency clinic's number. If you're traveling with your furbaby, be sure to have access to contact information for veterinary clinics, including emergency ones, on your travels. Similarly, if you're traveling but your furbaby is staying home with a sitter, make sure you leave them the numbers for pertinent clinics. And, in case of an emergency, don't forget to always have your furbaby's medical records up-to-date and readily available. It's never fun to think there might be an emergency, but it's always best to be prepared nonetheless.

  1. We didn't realise that Evan was a special needs cat and hope he remembers so he doesn't fall over or spoil his special day.

  2. Oh Evan, that is so great that can get around and do cat things. Well done but we are not surprised. It is amazing what cats can do. Plus you have one fantastic Mom that takes care of you. All of you have a really nice day.

  9. He is incredibly special. Love the cowboy art :) Is the fan on the floor for the kitties? I've done the same thing in the past for Tara and Truffles but Mudpie doesn't like it.
