I would like to introduce you to a very special cat named Rexie. He is disabled because of a broken backbone and it keeps him from controlling his hind legs. Most people would consider this to be a disability that would slow a cat down but, not Rexie. Not only is he able to overcome the issue with some equipment, he has a personality that just won’t quit. When you see the expressions on his face, you will instantly know that he is a cat to be loved and admired.
Rexie is not only a special cat, he has a special human as well. Her name is Dasha Minaeva and she has admitted that they have a rather unique relationship. When Dasha is taking pictures of this beautiful cat, it is as if he comes alive and knows that he is being photographed. As Dasha says, the outcomes are never disappointing.
Rexie had a rather sad past. He was not treated well by his former owners and they hurt him and left him paralyzed. It took some time for him to learn how to cope with the disability but now, he is living large. Dasha even says that he doesn’t know he is handicapped. After all, he does everything every other cat does except use the litterbox on his own or scratch himself behind the ears. That is why he has a human!
A custom wheelchair was provided for Rexie but it didn’t take long to learn that it was just holding him back. Cats have a way of adjusting and his independent personality came through. As you are about to see, the rest of his personality came through in the pictures as well.
