Here at iHeartCats, we believe that all cats are beautiful, and if you’re a fan of our page, we bet you feel the same way! While we cat lovers would never deem a kitt un-adoptable, this disfigured ginger kitten in Spain was passed up by many potential adopters because of his looks.

But the ginger tabby, who’s name is Romeo, finally got his chance at a happy life when the Santuario Compasión Animal (translation: Compassion Animal Sanctuary) took him under their wing. In him, they saw a happy, playful sweetheart with beautifully unique features.

“Romeo is not ugly, [he’s] a lovely little kitten who likes to play like the rest of cats. And their differences make [them] special,” reads a translated post on the group’s Facebook page.

Meet the beautiful Romeo:


Now, Romeo has found a forever home in the sanctuary, where he’s appreciated and loved. We bet that he’ll never be lonely again, because he’ll always have the company of the other kitty residents! We’re so glad that this adorable kitten found the forever home that he deserves. He also shows us how wonderful animals that are “different” can be!
