This adorable ball of fluff is on his way to becoming a TikTok sensation. Rex—a cat believed to be living in Canada—has lost his front paws and most of his tail. The poor fella fell in a water dish when he was just a young cat living on a farm, and sadly, they froze. Ever since Rex has been learning how to adapt to everyday life using only his back legs.
His adventures are being documented on TikTok, where Rex’s owners show the daily adaptations Rex has to make in order to get around and live a normal feline life. With over 117k followers already on the platform, Rex is on his way to internet stardom.
Rex’s owners share bits and pieces of the fluffy feline’s life both on Instagram and TikTok. The now-viral videos include Rex standing like a human, staring into a door, or him trying to get down the stairs—which is not the easiest task for a cat with no front paws.
A lot of fans of Rex on TikTok have been pointing out that the cat would do so much better if the owners would get some rugs. However, they were quick to respond that there’s an actual reason they don’t buy rugs anymore—Rex is very fond of peeing on them.
Needless to say, people fell in love with Rex. “He’s so precious,” one TikTok user commented. “Not to be dramatic, but I’d die for Rex,” another woman added. More often than not, people have been asking Rex’s owners to send him hugs and kisses from people who can’t pet him in real life.
