The kitten with the cute ears is happy to be adored and doesn’t need to wonder anymore.
A stray cat was found and taken to the Rowan County, North Carolina shelter earlier this month. She was suffering from a cold and a neck injury.
A friendly stray with Yoda-like ears was transported to Cabarrus Animal Hospital for medical attention. She instantly won the hearts of the entire staff.
“Alisha Kidwell, MD, is treating her.” Yana Aviles, a veterinary assistant at the clinic, describes the cat as “extremely sweet and friendly.”
Kitty’s weight was about seven pounds. That’s small but full of endearing idiosyncrasies.
According to Shelby Beers, a veterinary technician, the cat has no incisors, which means she often sticks her tongue out, which only adds to her charm.
“It has not been determined how old she is (exactly). She is young, about a year old. Too small for an adult cat,” Shelby said.
“She is on the mend and resting comfortably, cuddled by the staff here.”
The adorable kitten has turned out to be a great snoop. She craves to be held and loves spending time with people.
“We carry her around in our hoodies like a kangaroo and she falls asleep,” Shelby says.
The kitten doesn’t have a name yet, but workers affectionately call her Yoda for her cute, unusual ears, reminiscent of that character.
“She’s shy, but she’s always ready to melt in the face of adoration.” Shelby describes her as “a wonderfully affectionate and sweet kitten.”
This fluffy gem is currently in a veterinary facility, where she is being carefully cared for and assisted in her recovery.
“In the U.S., there are 70 million stray cats, but the capture service only finds four million a year,” Yana writes.
The sweet kitty is in for a treat.
Yoda the cat is boldly heading into his wonderful future, now that he is no longer responsible for a roof over his head.
