The shelter said cat was unadoptable, but this man took him home anyway
"The shelter said he was unadoptable due to only having one eye, so I adopted him," the cat's dad said.
"He had been at the shelter going on 4 months and in that time many people said they would adopt him but no one ever followed through completely. He had been returned twice when owners found cleaning his eye socket to be too gross or whatever lame ass excuse they used. So the adoption place put him out one last time before making him the official mascot of the shelter."
"I saw him on a trip to get cat litter for my other kitties. I didn't even see his missing eye at first. Just an affectionate boy sticking his paw out of the cage. Asked to see him and the staff were somewhat hesitant but obliged. They informed me how no one seemed to want him and how he was returned. I told them I only had adopted rescues at home and didn't care about the missing eye or having to clean it. They kinda acted like, 'yeah right, heard that before.'"
"Visited him four times in a week and on the 15th my girlfriend and I decided he was meant to be ours. And now he's my little pirate kitty :)"
He's a tough little guy and is so happy to finally find his forever home. We're grateful for people that rescue kitties in need. :)
