Didn't feel like getting up today? Try being Caffrey, the 13-year-old Persian cat who hobbles around on two legs after a car accident and tumor robbed him of half his limbs.

Caffrey lost his left hind leg at the age of three after a car ran him over. Ten years later, doctors discovered a malignant tumor and amputated Caffrey's left front leg.

Caffrey's owner, Sue Greaves, told The Daily Mail that her veterinarian's colleagues doubted that he would ever walk again, but it only took a few weeks for the plucky cat to regain his balance.

'Everyone who sees him is astonished at what he can do,' Greaves said. 'He doesn't seem bothered at all by having only two legs.'
