At first glance, little Lisa looks like any other kitten. The tiny tabby is cute, super-furry, and has a pair of gorgeous eyes that scream, "love me now!"

But Lisa has a unique set of struggles to overcome. She was born with a rare genetic condition called Manx Syndrome, which means she's got no tail and her little paws bend inwards. 

A very happy housecat

In other words, Lisa isn't the most agile cat in the world. She can only dream of chasing squirrels and climbing trees.

But despite her daily challenges, this house cat is loving life. And that's thanks to one amazing lady who took a chance on a very special cat.

Her name is Anna Dickerson-Homan, and she's a feline foster mum for the Kitten Factory rescue service.  Anna offered Lisa a home when the kitten was just 3.5 weeks old. She didn't want Lisa to miss out on a forever home just because she was a little bit different.

"Lisa is perfectly imperfect," said Anna in an interview with  LoveMeow. "And you don't need to be a medical expert to open your heart to kittens like Lisa. You just have to have the fire in your heart to help them. They should be loved as much love as any other kitten."

Love is the best therapy

Lisa will always need an extra helping paw. But she's got that now. And there's nothing standing between her and the kind of life every furball deserves.
