Rescue Cat with the Craziest Whiskers Went from Trauma/Neglect To A Happily Ever After
Meet Kyle, the cat! He’s a rescue Persian cat with the most outrageous looking whiskers you’ve ever seen. He went from being a victim of neglect to now a champ with a family that adores him!
One day, Jen and her partner were browsing on PetFinder. They were looking for a feline companion for their cat Princess Mer. Suddenly they came across a kitty with the craziest-looking whiskers along with a perfectly shaped mustache. The cat dad insisted that they immediately drive to visit the kitty, which was three hours away at a no -kill rescue.
When they arrived at the shelter, they immediately asked for the cat. One look at the cat, and they knew they had to take him home.
“It was a mix of shock at first sight and love at first sight – shock because he was a hot mess (wheezing, dandruff, disheveled whiskers) and love because you just wanted to take care of this poor mess of a creature,” Jen told Love Meow.
The cat had a of ailments against him – 3 teeth, no claws, severe dandruff, hip dysplasia and a crooked ear. But, beside it all, the cat was in love with life.
As they began the adoption process, they learned shocking things about Kyle’s past.
The Persian kitty was a victim of neglect. He also had witnessed a domestic violence incident between his former owners that ended fatally. As a result, Kyle was confiscated and “held as evidence” by the police.
“He was taken into police custody with 30 other felines who had been his roommates,” Jen told Love Meow. “At the time we met him he was skiddish and disoriented.”
“You could tell he was a lover, though, because despite the trauma he had been through, he still ran up to us for some lovin’… in small millisecond intervals.”
They took the wild whiskered cat home, and showered him with love.
Kyle is now 8 – 11 years old. His epic whiskers have gotten him a lot of admirers on Instagram.
“Kyle’s whiskers are a combination of genetics and extreme napping.”
If Kyle was a superhero, he “would be called ‘Tentacle Cat’ and his special powers would be tickling his enemies silly with his whisker-tentacles and inducing them into a deep sleep by applying excessive heat to his enemies’ laps.”
“He wants to use his glorious ‘stache and undeniable charm to prevent incidents like the one his former owner experienced & advocate for animal-friendly domestic violence shelters to help victims feel comfortable escaping their dangerous situations.”
It has been 6 years since Kyle found his forever humans.
He has won the hearts of everyone around him with awesome whiskers, and his charm. His new family couldn’t be happier to have Kyle in their lives.
This could very well be the cat version of Albert Einstein 🙂 Share with friends!
