An adorable kitty in Yorkshire, England, is looking for a new home. She comes with love, snuggles, and probably her own toys, but there’s just one thing missing…
She doesn’t have ears!
Stella the 12-year-old Turkish Angora cat was unfortunately abandoned by her owners, but thankfully rescued by Blue Cross Cattery in Yorkshire, England.
Little Stella had her ears cut off after a scary bout of skin cancer. But now she’s healthy and happy and looking for a new family to love her.
Hannah Coggin, a volunteer at the cattery, said that Stella is as spry and playful as ever, even though she’s a little mature
“Shes 12 years old but still acts like a kitten,” Coggin explains. “She loves people and a good cuddle. She really doesnt act her age at all. Shes just so friendly, shed make someone a lovely pet even if she does look a bit strange.”
If by “strange” you mean “extremely cute and lovable,” then yes, she is strange.
Stella doesn’t seem to be too upset about not having ears she calls herself a “stunning distinguished lady” in her adoption profile.
Hello My name is Stella and I’m a Turkish Angora.
I suppose that we better talk about the elephant in the room first, I have no ears! They were removed last year as the Vet I was seeing thought that I may of developed skin cancer in one of them. I have since being given a full bill of health with no further treatment required.
Please don’t let this put you off, I am a stunning distinguished lady that is looking for her forever home.I have only just arrived here at Grimsby but I have already made friends with the lovely staff. I like to fuss around them when they come into see me as I’ve worked out that this may get me the odd treat or two.
If you feel that you could offer me the loving home I do truly deserve them please get in touch,
Yours faithfully, Stella XX
Coggin adds that although Stella lacks ears, she can hear surprisingly well, especially when a can of food is opened nearby.
“Shes come to us after having her ears removed, but they were taken off last year because she had cancer,” Coggin said. “Since then weve kept an eye on her but she hasnt needed any other treatment at all and has been doing really well.”
Although Stella’s previous owners paid for the operation, they brought her into the shelter after their circumstances changed and they could no longer look after her. But now another lucky family will get to fall in love with Stella just as much as we already have.
“We really hope she can find herself a happy home to grow old in,” said Coggin.
So do we. Run, don’t walk to adopt this sweet kitty who lacks a little something in appearance, but has tons more love to give.
