Bugs have been mankind’s enemy for centuries, and many of us even have such extreme fears of the tiny creatures that we’d rather run away and joke about burning down our own homes than touch a single insect. It often takes a lot of bravery to confront a bug invader and eradicate it from the household.
Thank goodness there are courageous people in the world, such as exterminators, to take care of the issue for us. Or, even better, cats. A good feline friend may be just what you need to take care of your bug problem. Then again, some of our kitty buddies are also not quite up to the job, and we can’t really blame them for that.
When Keebo’s family trolled her with a fake insect buzzing and crawling around the floor of her home, she didn’t know quite what to do with it. On the one hand, she’s a curious kitty and a talented hunter, and she is usually the bug catcher in the family. On the other hand, this bug is not quite like the others…it just doesn’t want to die or run away.
No matter how many times Keebo bats at the bug, threatening that it needs to leave or suffer the consequences, the bug continues to buzz around the floor, even seeming to chase Keebo sometimes when she backs off.
You’ll love the adorable looks of surprise and frustration on this kitty’s face as she works hard to do her job to the best of her ability. And get a load of the adorable way she holds her front paws together in hesitation as she contemplates her next move! She may not ever catch the bug, but she’s just so cute to watch.
Keebo suffers from radial aplasia, a condition that affects the radial bones in her front legs. This condition can happen in people or animals, and it generally results in the absence of the radial bone or a shortened radial bone, usually on both front limbs.
Luckily, in Keebo’s case, her radial aplasia does not seem to cause her any pain or mobility issues. She’s just a normal cat who happens to look a bit like a T-rex. We’re so grateful that her family saw the value in her despite her disability and works hard to give her a normal life. Even one that does include evil bug invaders that can’t be stopped
You gave it your best shot, Keebo! We’re still rooting for you! Check out the video below to see the entire harrowing battle.Whizzco
