A little kitten who was born with an unusually perfect face, he is very happy to have found a loving and forever home. The kitten named Maverick was delivered to a shelter in New York when he was only six months old, because his previous owners could not care for him.
His future was uncertain, but the shelter staff began looking for a rescue team that was equipped to help the little one and guarantee his quality of life.
The kitten was born with a rare genetic condition that causes the unique characteristics in his small face, turning the feline into a special animal.
Cat with unusually perfect face finds home
Maverick has a flat nose, bulging eyes, and mild hydrocephalus, but he’s still the happiest boy of all.
Tara Kay, founder of the Odd Cat Sanctuary in Massachusetts, learned of Maverick’s case, and knew immediately that she and her team could do something to help him. This sanctuary is dedicated to rescuing felines with special needs that are considered “unacceptable” and providing them with the care they need for life.
When Maverick arrived at the sanctuary, he felt very comfortable; before long he was playing, he was happy to have a bed to sleep in, food and toys. But, in reality, what made Maverick most happy was being able to share with the people of the place and have them close to give them their love.
Tara told Love Meow:
“He may look a little different, but he’s just like any normal cat on the inside.”
Maverick is a very social cat; he likes to squeal and meow to get attention and prefers to be hugged for a nap.
“He doesn’t have the best eyesight, but actually he sees better than he seems. He breathes a little harder because of his crushed face, but he’s happy and healthy.”
When the little one was ready to meet other cats, the staff introduced him to his sanctuary roommates for time sharing. Maverick immediately walked over to them and they started hanging out, playing games, watching TV, and even taking a nap together.
“He Instantly he becomes everyone’s friend. He loves to play, fight with them and adores any other cat that he knows.”
The feline is very expressive and is not shy to say his opinions, if he wants something, he grabs it, and does not take no for an answer. Not to mention when he wants more treats; He stands out in any way so that his caretakers pay attention to him and give him his prize.
Fortunately, the sweet kitten is thriving in his new permanent home, alongside a large family that adores and loves him.
Even though the cuddly feline doesn’t have the best eyesight, he makes up for it with his incredible hearing and his amazing sense of smell.
When the sanctuary staff hides a gift in the room, the kitten always finds it first, nothing that smells good can escape it. Also, Maverick likes to show off his cute fangs often, as he is usually giving smiles to people and peers.
Maverick hangs out with his classmates or watching the neighborhood. When he’s not doing this, he is most likely snuggling with his caretaker.
There is never a dull moment for Maverick, and despite being different, he continues to live his day to the fullest.
For now, Maverick will continue to enjoy being the sanctuary overseer, and he will never tire of receiving lots of hugs and love in return.
