Man ‘Scours’ Shelter For Pedigree Cat, Kitten With Deformity Grabs His Heart

| Published on April 19, 2024

Arlo, a young kitten with distinct needs, found himself at a local shelter seeking a forever home. Despite his unique appearance, characterized by a hunched back and facial deformity, Arlo quickly endeared himself to the shelter staff. His physical differences did nothing to dampen his affectionate nature. This charming little “love bug” was full of warmth and enthusiasm, eagerly seeking out cuddles and interactions with anyone who approached him. His endearing personality shone brightly, proving that the beauty of an animal goes far beyond its physical attributes. Arlo’s ability to win over the hearts of the shelter workers underscored an important message about acceptance and the special bond humans can share with animals of all kinds.

With shelters being overrun by needy animals, the staff worried that Arlo wouldn’t find a home because of his deformities. The vet diagnosed him with hydrocephalus which is the reason for his unique features. But despite his diagnosis, he was otherwise healthy.

A man named Davy was looking to adopt a senior cat, preferably a pedigree. He lived a relaxed, slow-paced life in the country. He felt an older cat would fit in perfectly. Davy went to the shelter and searched for his kitty soulmate. The cats looked at him from their cages, vying for his attention.

But Davy was already taken. Arlo saw him from across the room and meowed until Davy came closer. The two locked eyes and fell head-over-paws in love. Would Davy look past the young cat’s age and facial deformity? Play the video below to find out!
