A disabled mermaid cat has become an internet star after being shot in the head and left for dead.

Owner Janez Jeretic found three-month-old kitten Sally after he was shot in the head and left for dead at a local park in 2013.

He took her to an emergency vet, where x-rays showed she was paraplegic from her injuries and said the moggy would never walk again.

Determined to give her a chance at a quality life, Janez – who was a student at the time – adopted the disabled kitty.

He bought a wheelchair with his student loan to give him some independence.

He then came up with the idea for a mermaid costume after visiting some friends and was a bit scared by his inability to walk.

Janez, 30, from Santiago, Chile, designed the tail on paper and asked a friend to sew it.

Now nine, Sally has become an internet star, posing regularly in her light blue fuzzy tail and specially designed wheelchair.

Janez shares her life on Instagram @sallymermaidcat to show the world that cats with special needs can live happy and fulfilling lives.

“I want people to see Sally the way I see her, as this beautiful magical creature who’s been through a lot but is now very happy with her life,” Janez said.

“I have to make sure I empty her bladder three times a day and I make sure she has enough space to move around without getting stuck.

“Hearing her purr and knowing she’s happy is worth it.

“According to the vets, she doesn’t feel anything under her neck, so I don’t think she notices the mermaid tail.

“But she can’t curl up to keep her body warm, so the material helps with that.

“Pets with disabilities may need a little extra work on your part, but they are amazing companions and are sure to add magical moments to your life.”

The Mirror talked about another cat who had fans swooning on the internet because he looked like Puss in Boots from Shrek.

Pisco is a golden British shorthair and when he begs for food with his paws up he bears more than a passing resemblance to the animated cat, voiced by Antonio Banderas.

His owner created an Instagram profile for the animal and now Pisco has over 614,000 followers.

The famous cat lives a life of luxury in New York, with all the toys and attention his heart desires.
