It makes no difference if a catto has an additional paw, ear, or eye. They’re all dear to us, and they all deserve to be cherished just like any other “regular” cat. They do, after all, have a heart and sentiments. So why should they be left behind just because they have a default appearance? When did appearances become so important to us? I thought we’d passed that point. This family, for one, is.
Frankie had a laundry list of issues. Some of them were born with four ears and a seriously diseased eye. Georgi brought him home after the required procedures, but she quickly realized she couldn’t live without this unique little kitty.
GAWS is in charge of all of Frankie’s medical bills.
Georgi has a small boy named Arthur, who has quickly become Frankie’s best friend, and the two are inseparable. “In the last year, I’ve fostered around 80 cats and kittens, and he was the only one I would have had problems returning.”
“His overbite, like his extra ears, is a hereditary abnormality.”
Georgi also worked on Frankie’s eyepatch, which he would wear over his head.
“I realized there was something unique about him, and I couldn’t stomach the idea of returning him.”
When they see an abnormality in a kitten, many people discard it. That is simply inhumane. Even if they have a handicap or deformity, all animals deserve to be loved.
Frankie is really fortunate to have met Georgi and her family.
