Mercury pitched in with the gift-wrapping in this video from mid-December, showing off his two-legged technique.
The Bohns have been looking into getting him prostheses, but the options available haven't been tried with cats before. "So far we have not found a device that would give him more freedom than he has right now," the Bohns said. "The best option we have seen ... would prevent him from jumping, using a litter box or even sleeping while using it.
"We're always open to the idea of a device, and as Mercury ages it may be something he needs. Right now though, being so restricted in his movement would likely lead to a very sad kitty, as he is still a very young cat and full of energy."
