When most people own a cat, they try to do their best to make sure he is well taken care of. Some people, however, do not make good pet owners and can be negligent of their animals or unable to meet their needs. That is what happened to this earless kitty.
When he developed massive cysts in his ears, his former owners were not able to pay for the surgery. So, they gave him up to the Feline Rescue Association of Baltimore. The rescue had the surgery done, but it left the poor creature without any ears.
He was placed on Petfinder, and that is where his mommy first saw his picture. She fell in love with him right away, adopted him, and gave him the name Otitis. While the vets say that he is unable to hear due to the surgery, he can pick up on vibrations, and even seems to hear loud noises.
Otitis' mama affectionately calls him "her little seal pup." With good reason too; he really does look like a white seal pup with baby blue eyes.
Otitis may not look like your average cat, but he still loves all things feline - like boxes and, of course, treats. His very favorite thing, though, is to snuggle with his mommy and daddy! It looks as though this special kitty picked the very best humans for him, and found his fur-ever home!
