Quirky faced cat finds a mom who loves everything about him (Gallery)
It was love at first sight!
Kaitlin Zezeski saw his photo on Petfinder.com and immediately fell in love with George the cat.
She called Griffin Pond Animal Shelter in South Abington Township, Pennsylvania, several times that week to make sure George was still available. "I couldn't get there fast enough," Zezeski told The Dodo.
Sadly, George had a pretty rough start to his life.
As a homeless kitten living on the streets, an unknown animal attacked him and he nearly died. An elderly couple found him and saved his life, nursing him back to health for as long as they could before giving him to a local rescue group. From there, George bounced around a lot between foster homes and rescue groups before eventually ending up at Griffin Pond, where Zezeski found him.
"The story of George is a sad one with a storybook ending," Zezeski said. "Fortunately, not only did George survive an animal attack, but he pulled through with nearly no health problems. Aside from looking a little goofy and having goopy eyes, he's perfectly healthy!"
He was a bit scared when he came to his new home. But with love, it changed everything.
George was not very snuggly the first few months Kaitlin had him. "He would snuggle next to me but never on me or with me," she told Love Meow.
"One day he jumped on the couch and I pet him, expecting him to jump back down. Instead, he curled up on my lap! My heart just melted because I know he finally trusted me now he won't give me a moment alone! If he wants to snuggle he will make you snuggle. But in all reality, who could resist George snuggles."
"The only time I don't see George is when I go to bed. He prefers to sleep in the living room. Otherwise he is always at my side. When I cook, he sits in the sink. When I bake, he lays on the stove because it's warm from the oven. When I shower, there's George with a wet head!"
"He loves attention, luckily he has 4 fur siblings to keep him occupied. He's super chatty in the morning when he's hungry! He jumps on my night stand and starts knocking things over until I wake up to feed him. He's very curious, he needs to inspect everything!"
"Although he his eyes are crossed, he is missing part of his mustache and you can see where they put his face back together, he's a healthy guy!"
"He grooms me every day and I consider it an honor (at least for the first few minutes)," Zezeski said. "He also loves to chase shadows and rainbows around the room."
"I'm proud to be his cat mom and can't encourage cat lovers enough to adopt the less adoptable. You're likely to find the most rewarding relationship of your life!"
We're so glad George found such an awesome loving home!
Look at that face!
