Special Cat with One Eye and Nostril Shows All Heart, Finds Loving Home

Eggbert the cat quickly captured hearts when his photo graced the adoptable pets page of an Ohio animal shelter. Remarkably, within a single day, this charming feline found a new home, showcasing his irresistible appeal.

However, Eggbert is no ordinary cat. He’s exceptional in more ways than one. Beyond his infectious personality, what truly sets apart this handsome tabby is his unique appearance. Eggbert was born with a distinctive condition – he lacks one eye and one nostril. Despite these physical differences, the Fairfield Area Humane Society in Lancaster, Ohio, emphasizes that Eggbert’s spirits remain undaunted, and he fully embraces the joys of life. This extraordinary cat, with his lovable nature and enchanting charm, serves as a reminder that beauty transcends physical forms.

Lovebug Finds a Home Swiftly

It’s no surprise that Eggbert found his family so quickly! Not only is he handsome, but his bio on the Fairfield Area Humane Society’s Facebook page portrayed two-year-old Eggbert as an “absolute angel of a kitty.”

As the Fairfield shelter shared, “He was born missing an eye and a nostril but aside from snoring like a chainsaw, it doesn’t slow him down a bit!”

“He loves to give headbutts, have his chin scratched, and follow you around like a baby duck.”

Fairfield also disclosed that Eggbert had encountered occasional seizures in the past. However, under their care, he had not experienced any. The shelter stated that they would collaborate closely with his adopter to continue monitoring him and providing treatment for epilepsy if necessary.

Eggbert sounds absolutely purrfect, and that’s exactly what cat mom Holly Starr thought when she spotted this special cat on Facebook. She knew Eggbert was destined to be part of her family right away. Additionally, she believed her kitty Lark, a one-eyed cutie also adopted from Fairfield, would adore him too.

Fairfield agreed, commenting, “They would be great friends.”

The very next morning, Holly contacted the shelter and arranged an appointment to meet Eggbert. In no time, Eggbert found his family! Now, he’s happily settled in his forever home with his new best buddy, Lark. It seems like Eggbert has many years of spoiling ahead!

Holly told Newsweek, “I’ve always had a special place in my heart for the animals with special needs, I want to make sure they have a loving home where they get all the attention they can handle.”

Fairfield said, “We know Eggy is in the best hands. He couldn’t have found a better home! He is going to be loved and spoiled rotten.”

Special needs cats are frequently overlooked during adoption, yet these resilient felines have an abundance of love to offer. When the time comes to add another cat to the family, consider adopting a special needs cat. The rewards come in the form of love, purrs, and whiskery kisses!
