Five-legged cat to lose two paws

Five-legged cat called Baby Girl

A rare five-legged stray cat called Baby Girl is to have surgery to help her get around more easily.

Vets in America are going to remove the extra leg, that has grown on her left side, and also a back leg that isn't working properly.

But staff at the animal centre in Pennsylvania say this will help Baby Girl move around - and hope that someone will then adopt her.

"She's actually a really, really nice cat," said a spokeswoman.
