A cat with a deformity, now named Romeo, found love after being left for dead in southeastern Spain despite being “too ugly.”
His siblings were already taken to homes, but Romeo was left behind. At least until director and co-founder of Santuario Compasión Animal Laura Llácer crossed paths with the stray kitten.
On Oct. 13, the sanctuary posted a video welcoming Romeo and announcing his new home. The translated message reads: “We were told nobody wanted him because he is ugly. But to us, Romeo isn’t ugly. He’s a little lovable kitten who loves to play like the rest of the cats. And his differences make him special.”
