A woman came to the sanctuary and found a cat with the perfectly asymmetric face looking at her. She just knew!
Lauren Thomson came to a sanctuary in Richmond, Virginia a few years ago, to search for a feline friend. She had a number of meet-and-greets with some of the cats, however could not feel the connection she was searching for.
” The last cat I had, picked me by swatting at my shoulder while I took a look at one more cat, and I was looking for one more match like that,” Lauren shared with Love Meow.
After meeting a few cats, she really felt a pair of eyes looking at her and turned to that direction. “I noticed a (tabby) cat staring right at me with her squinty face and tongue hanging around, and I knew she was my girl.”
The tabby called Piddlesticks came to the shelter with a broken jaw. She was pregnant and rough around the edges. After a long foster journey and undergoing kitty jaw surgical treatment, she was back to her happy self, sporting the cutest asymmetric face.
All her kittens quickly got adopted out to their forever homes. Piddles found herself waiting at the sanctuary for nine months, longing for her dream to come true.
When she met Lauren on that fateful day, she had her eyes focused on her, hoping that Lauren can see her, and she did. That day noted a new beginning for the sweet tabby girl.
” On her initial day home, I can tell that she was confused, but we bonded quickly, and she’s been by my side ever since,” Lauren told Love Meow.
” She does not always wish to cuddle so when she does hop into my lap it makes it much more unique. She definitely loves belly rubs and chin scrapes.”
At about 9 years old now, the wonderful tabby cat is still a cat in mind. She enjoys time with her forever human, enjoys feline entertainment by the home windows, and suches as to hang out on the screen porch, seeing little critters while indulging in the sun.
She has the completely asymmetric face! Lauren shared a video of her cat, using the inverted feature on tiktok and quickly received over six million sights in just three days.
