Homeless Cat Who Was Shunned For Her ‘Unique’ Face Is Now Charming Everyone

When we’re planning to adopt a pet, we usually look for certain aesthetic values. Cats are supposed to be cuddly, after all, so we like choosing an animal that is cute and fluffy.

That sentiment sometimes causes problems for cats like Lily, who are perfectly normal and healthy, but who look a little, well… strange. In addition to being orphaned as a kitten, it didn’t look like she would ever find a home.

Would anyone find something to love about this homeless cat with a strange face? Or would she be shunned forever?

Lily might have been an otherwise ordinary cat, but there was no denying that she had a face that many would consider to be a bit unusual. In 2011, when she was just two days old, she was discovered at a construction site alongside her sister.

These two orphans were the only kittens in their litter to survive. Both of them had almost entirely white fur, save for scattered black markings on their faces. As Lily grew, though, it was discovered that she had something else that made her even more unique.

Lily was actually cross-eyed! Both kittens were taken in by a foster mother, and Lily’s sister was adopted by a loving family. Still, the foster mom loved Lily so much that she couldn’t bear to see her go.

Shortly after adopting Lily, the kitten’s new adoptive mother created an Instagram account for her called littleladylily. She also gave her the charming nickname “Lily the Rorschach Cat,” due to the markings on her face that seemed similar to ink blots.

Now, she and Lily are truly living the good life together. While this special kitty might not be the typical picture of feline beauty, most agree that she’s got a look worth being proud of. That’s probably why she’s gained such a following…

Given the oh-so adorable black tips on Lily’s ears and tail, it’s really no wonder at all that such a unique-looking cat, who is now six years old, has become such a bona fide Instagram star.

Besides sharing a home (not to mention social media accounts) with her human mom, Lily also has an adoptive sister, a beautiful Calico cat named Jezebel. Together, they make for quite a unique pair.

It’s great that Lily now seems so confident and happy in her forever home. She has everything a cat could ever want, including a couch, a comforter, a cat carrier, and even a high-rise cat tree!

Not every cat is as fortunate as Lily has been. She might have had a rough start, but her life definitely appears to be nothing but smooth sailing from here on out. She’s cross-eyed, sure, but that doesn’t mean she isn’t the best cat anyone could hope for!

Lily’s life is a testament to the fact that not only does each and every cat deserve to live in a loving forever home, but that even the strangest-looking cats can often find somebody special to love them!
