This is a cute story! The cat in this story looks like my cat Leather.

Everyone needs a friend like this. Back in October, Seminole County Animal Services in Florida found a 2-year-old Dachshund protecting a 7-month-old paraplegic kitten by a gated driveway.

The Doxie, later named Idgie, was guarding the cat, Ruth - barking and growling if someone came close. Ruth can only move by dragging herself with her front legs. "Both of them were found in fairly good shape, not filthy or malnourished, so it seems as though they probably had a home at some point," the shelter's Diane Gagliano told the Orlando Sentinel earlier this month.

"But on the flip side, no one came and claimed them, and how could the cat get very far without the owner knowing?" The shelter had to set up a special pen to keep the two together, because Idgie was so unhappy when they were apart. Thankfully, they don't have to worry about being separated now. Jacqueline Borum, who runs Hollywood Houndz Boutique & Spa, adopted the duo and is keeping them at the business where "everyone can enjoy them and take care of them," she said. "They are so special!" Borum named the pair after the loyal friends in "Fried Green Tomatoes." The story was reported in the Sentinel earlier this month and has since gone viral. - Watch it from the Orlando Sentinel via YouTube and get updates on Idgie and Ruth from Project Paw.

That is so cute. I wonder what happened to the cat that it's paraplegic.

That's the million dollar question. I would like to know how the cat got that way too.
