Hello friends! My name is Mitzvah. I have quite a story for a little guy who hasn't even been on the planet for a year yet! I was rescued in Afghanistan after a very kind samaritan saved me after I dog had mauled me so badly that I had to have my rear leg amputated. 

I was small and helpless but so trusting and lovable. My benefactor cared so much for me that my transport to Virginia was arranged with the goal of finding me a loving forever home through King Street Cats.

I've been at KSC recovering while surrounded by love and care and guess what? Missing a leg stops me from doing nothing! I run, I jump, I play, I climb and climb and climb!

Three legged kitties are affectionately called "tripods." I have a friend with two paws (and thumbs) helping me type my story right now. She adopted a KSC tripod who is not only the love of her life but the happiest, spunkiest, most athletic kitty you could hope to meet -- and that's what I'm going to be when my forever purrson or family comes and takes me home!

I'm a bit shy to start -- you can understand how much change I've seen in my little life, right? But I am a darling, a sweetheart, and a happy little guy and I'll warm up as soon as I understand that you're here to love and protect me. 

I'm adorable too - big green eyes, mocha colored tabby coat that's soft, short and plush, and the sweetest little round face!

We think I was born around June 2019 so I am still a kitten!

Please come to meet me. I have so much to offer and I can't wait to start the new year in a new home with my forever family. It's easy to get started: send an email to and ask for me, Mitzvah. I'm waiting!

Hoping to be yours,
