Corky was pretty twisted around…but now, he's right where he needs to be!

Born with Bilateral Arthrogryposis of the Tarsus, Corky's hind legs were developing criss-crossed AND backwards.

After a staunch Facebook campaign, the kitty received enough donations for surgery to correct his legs!

The surgery was very risky and many vets were hesistant on helping Corky.

In stepped Dr. Dan Burchill, who spent five hours on a procedure that involved cutting the cat's Achilles tendons and rearranging his legs.

Now, Corky is on the road to recovery!

While he teaches himself how to walk, Corky is beginning therapy and soon, he'll be back on his FOUR feet!

Check out the video (below) to see Corky take some of his first steps!
