Facts about Bingley

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Brown Tabby
  • Age: Young
  • Sex: Male
  • Hair: Short
This handsome little white and gray tabby patched kitten is BINGLEY. He came to us at 6 weeks old in September 2014 after being found by another local rescue. When it was obvious that Bingley had issues with his back legs and some mobility challenges it was apparent that Tenth Life was the place for him.

Bingley’s foster Momma has fostered other cats with mobility issues, however Bingley is unique in that he only has partial paralysis of his rear legs versus full paralysis. Bingley has normal feeling in his rear legs as well as movement. While he can’t walk like a normal cat, he does push his rear legs against the floor in a swimming motion when running about the house. In addition, Bingley is able to use the litter box on his own 100% of the time. While a lower box is easier for him to manage, he crawls into the big boy boxes with the older resident cats.

Bingley is shy when first meeting new people, but whenever he trusts you, it means amazing rewards which include sweet purry cuddles and kneading his paws in contentment. His foster Momma attests that cuddle time with Bingley is some of the best! Bingley is able to scale the cat trees, crawl up onto the couch, dart from room to room, and navigate the carpeted stairs as quickly and easily as a normal kitten. He doesn’t let his unique legs slow him down at all. Bingley loves to play with his foster siblings and resident cats so a home with another kitty friend is essential. He would do best in a mostly carpeted, quiet home without younger children or dogs.

Recently, Bingley saw a neurologist for an MRI just to see if there was anything that could be done to further aid in his mobility and to ensure that there are no foreseen futures changes to his current level of care which requires no special accommodations. While the MRI found that his condition is permanent, his Dr doesn’t expect any decline in his condition in the future. Bingley is ready for the purrfect furever family to fall in love with him. Please consider adopting this sweet little boy TODAY!

About Tenth Life Cat Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Tenth Life is an animal welfare organization that provides another chance at life to injured and abused stray cats. Our focus is on felines with extreme medical needs or ongoing conditions that make it difficult for typical shelters to afford their care.

Stage one of our mission is getting needy cats off the streets of St. Louis and into caring Foster Homes, where they await their forever homes. Stage two´s goal is to open a shelter building that will house special-needs kitties in a cage-free, no-kill setting until they can be carefully placed in their forever homes.
