It is Friday and that means it's time to honor our pet of the week. Let's have a look at our wall of winners. Now these are some of the incredible animals making the world a better place. And this morning, we get to meet taffy, a cat with a disability who inspires and brings joy to her family. Tiffany Bailey loves animals caring for them ace vet technician at her local Pennsylvania shelter. I tend to take on the more medically challenging cases, the sick and the injured. Reporter: She and her husband have fostered some including taffy the cat. Taffy came with with her two sister, praline and brittle from a family overrun with cats and kittens who were unspade and Reporter: It was apparent taffy required some extra care. After we did an x-ray we realized she was born without hip socks but her legs do not get in the way. Reporter: They ended up making her part of their family for good after bonding early on. Taffy came to us when we were deep in our infertility struggle. We had been trying to have a baby for nine years and taffy helped me through depression. Reporter: Then 15 months ago the ultimate blessing, the couple welcomed daughter Stella. Are you waving to taffy? Taffy now spends her days scooting to new adventures and climbing to new heights thriving in her forever home. Taffy inspires us on a daily basis. She gave me a deeper purpose in my life. She is a true testament of being more than a disability. We are here with the incredible taffy and her mom, Tiffany Bailey. Now, you said that taffy inspired you to love other animals, to rescue. Can you tell me about that. In the foster and shelter world it's not always great. You know, we see some sad stories but when I look at her I'm reminded that, you know, there's more animals to save and we need to keep trying. I love what you were telling us during the break, that taffy doesn't know that she -- she's different. She doesn't know it. She plays with all the other how dis she keep an eye on you. She scoots all over the house and loves up on all the dogs, snuggles with her cat brother. And she even goes and checks in on our fosters we have in the other room. She's busy. We need to award her. We want to give her the pet of the week medal because she definitely earned it for all the love and joy she brings into the world. There we go. She's so calm. Well deserved. Sweet. Well deserved. Yay, taffny. Congratulations taffy and Tiffany. What do you think she would say about this? I think she would be proud. I think that, you know, taffy loves to be a spokesperson for shelter animals and animals with special needs. What a great message. Amazing. Thank you very much for being here. Congratulations, taffy.
