The cat named Eggbert was left at the Fairfield Area Humane Society (FAHS) as his family did not want him.
When a family did not want their deformed tabby cat anymore, they simply left him behind at a pet adoption center in Lancaster, Ohio. Named Eggbert, the feline only had one eye and one nostril which actually makes for an adorable permanent wink. Hoping to find a home for sweet cat, the Fairfield Area Humane Society (FAHS) shared a post on Facebook back in February.
The nonprofit, which welcomed the cat wholeheartedly, was very particular about the home Eggbert would go to as his previous family warned them about his fragile health condition. They were told that Eggbert could experience seizures and may have epilepsy in future. But other than that the cat didn’t have any problems in their care, according to The EPoch Times.
"If epilepsy is diagnosed, his adopter should be ready and willing to give medication and do routine bloodwork as recommended by their veterinarian. He has had a full workup with our veterinarian which didn’t reveal any direct cause for seizure activity, but does not rule it out," read FAHS’s Facebook post on February 23.
Describing Eggbert as a loving, friendly, and peaceful cat the organization revealed that one of his nostrils was closed shut just like his eye. But said that he was a normal cat otherwise who snores loudly due to the deformity. "He is a total lovebug and gets along well with other cats, dogs, and kids. He loves to give headbutts, have his chin scratched, and follow you around like a baby duck," noted Fairfield Area Humane Society.
It didn't take long for a family to ultimately adopt him. Apparantely, the "2 year old" was an "absolute angel of a kitty" as soon as it was adopted.
The family who welcomed Eggbert home had previously adopted another cat from FAHS. "His new family has another FAHS alumni kitty at home, so 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. Thank you for choosing adoption again," wrote FAHS on February 26 with a picture of their handsome devil leaving the facility.
In the adorable picture, the one-eyed tabby could be seen in the loving arms of her human mom while her daughter and husband posed beside her. They all look extremely content and all set to take the unwanted cat home to begin his happily ever after. "He couldn’t have found a better home! He is going to be loved and spoiled rotten. Thank you for choosing adoption again," wrote the FAHS.
