Here’s How a Two-Legged Cat Gets Down the Stairs

With a flying handstand!

This is Boots, a double amputee cat who lives in Colorado. She gets around with the help of prosthetic “house slippers” and has re-learned to walk. She has also learned how to descend a staircase, as seen in this video uploaded by her human.

Good job, Boots. Keep on fighting the good fight.
