Kitten With One Eye And A Cleft Lip Finally Found Her Forever Home

Meet Ana, a four-month-old black kitten who struggled to find her forever home. The sweet black kitten arrived at Battersea Dogs & Cats Home in December when she was seven weeks old. She was born with a cleft lip and lost her right eye at only a few weeks old.

When the shelter welcomed Ana, staff feared her unconventional and unusual looks would put her from finding a good owner. Along with her unusual looks, Ana is also a black cat. In fact, it is difficult for black cats to find their forever homes due to superstitions and misconceptions.

“As well as her distinctive face, Ana is a black cat and too many people still have misconceptions and superstitions about that particular colour. We think she’s beautiful just the way she is because the things that make an animal different are what makes them special,” Rachel Saunders, Battersea’s Cattery Manager, said.

“It is such a shame when people take animals at face value when searching for a new pet, rather than looking beyond their appearance to find unique quirks and personalities.”

A Battersea representative told that Ana’s luck had finally changed after her amazing story was shared. Many people offered to adopt Ana, and she was adopted the very next day! Thanks to great cat lovers, Ana has found her family.

“Wow, thank you so much for all your love and support for our little Ana! It looks like it’s paid off, she’s now found a home!”

“As with any rescue animal, Ana deserves a fresh start and has a lot to offer as a pet. She’s had a tough start to life, but she’s definitely still got eight of her nine lives left to live and we hope that her luck is about to change for the better. She may not have 20/20 vision, but we believe that this will be her year,” Rachel said.

Ana may not look like a typical kitten that everyone wants, but that doesn’t change the fact that she is a lovely kitten and deserves a wonderful home, just like any other cat.
