Vituzzo is a ginger tabby cat living in Milan, Italy. Until December 2018, he lived a perfectly normal feline life with his family’s two humans. But on December 20, 2018, the poor kitty was accidentally hit by a running car. To make matters worse, the pet’s parents were out of town on their honeymoon at the time. Poor Vituzzo was immediately rushed to the veterinary clinic, but the vets were unable to save his back legs.

A year later, in December 2019, Vituzzo was fitted with a new prosthetic leg and was able to act like the cat he once was. Despite his injuries, Vituzzo is still happy, energetic, and loves to love and be loved.
