Two-year-old Noodles is living her life to the filled despite her deformity, even now able to move around independently and jump around her home.

Noodles' owner Sarah Phillips, 21, explains that she adopted the sweet feline at just two days old after she was rejected by her stray mother.

Sarah said: "We got Noodles when she was two days old after she was rejected by her mother, a stray cat who gave birth to her outside of a friend's house.

"Bottle babies are very stressful to care for, especially in her situation because no one expected her to live past a week old.

"As for her condition, we have no clue, her vet says he's never seen a cat with her deformity.

"He says he's seen the deformity in the front legs of cats before, but never in the back ones."

Noodles, now two, is now completely capable of moving around on her own, and only needs the help of a stroller when leaving the house, as to not hurt herself on rough terrains.

Sarah, from Pickens, South Carolina, explains her development has come after months and months of hard work.

Sarah said: "Noodles really didn't know what to make of her legs in the beginning, she always acted confused when it came to walking.

"When she was a baby and started trying to walk, I had to hold my fingers under her tummy and help her move her back legs one by one until she understood how to use them.

"After she really took off with walking, her little 'knees' as we call them started getting sores, so I applied medicine to them daily and kept her legs in clean wraps until they healed.

"As she's gotten older, her knees have callused and become stronger so her skin rarely even becomes irritated anymore.

"We were set on getting her a wheelchair in the beginning, but she progressed well beyond our expectations.

"She became very independent and doesn't even want my help anymore when it comes to walking, running or jumping."

This just shows what love and encouragement can do. Good going, Noodles!
