After their owner died, Peanut and nine other cats were sent to a shelter. Peanut was immediately noticeable as being unusual when he initially arrived. He’s not only half blind and deaf, but he also doesn’t look like most cats. Peanut is very lovely, and the shelter isn’t sure if it’s because of something that happened to him or if he was just born that way.
Peanut’s face and ears are positioned in such a manner that he nearly resembles a bunny rather than a cat, and it didn’t take long for someone to fall in love with that exquisite face.
Peanut’s mother, Sydney Benham, told The Dodo, “I knew I couldn’t leave him there when I saw him.”
Benham decided she had to take Peanut home after bonding with him and hearing his tale, and she did so in September 2020. Peanut was believed to be approximately 8 years old by the shelter, and it didn’t take long for the gentle senior cat to relax into his new home and show off his endearing old-man attitude.
“It’s difficult to put into words his personality,” Benham added. “He is one-of-a-kind and just ‘he.’” He is kind and caring, and he enjoys chewing on his toes and playing with his fingers. I believe he is far sharper than he lets on, and that he deliberately ignores me or does things that upset me, like as jumping on my table. His handicaps do not deter him in the least! He has no bounds!”
People can’t help but fall in love with Peanut when they see his charming, unusual face. Peanut is unique, and his family wouldn’t have him any other way. “When people see him, they typically fall in love with him immediately away,” Benham added. “How could they not?!” says the narrator. He’s such a lovely young man.”
It’s difficult to know precisely what Peanut has gone through in his life, but all that counts now is that he’s secure and loved in an incredible forever home where he can finally come out of his shell and flaunt his individuality to the world.
