A Kitten with a Unique Face Is Seeking Someone Who Will Love Him For Who He Is

When Jacqueline Santiago first saw a picture of Pinocchio, she knew he was different.

It wasn’t until she saw him that she realized how magnificent the small little cat with the enormous blue eyes and the snaggletooth was.

“I couldn’t really make out what was going on with his face until he came,” Santiago, owner of Friends for Life Rescue Network, told The Dodo.

Due to a birth abnormality in his skull, Pinocchio was born with a twisted appearance. He has a twisted jaw, so he can only eat wet food. He also had a significant umbilical hernia that needed to be surgically repaired. Fortunately, the charity typically focuses in special needs cases because they have a veterinarian on staff.

Santiago didn’t seem to notice anything weird about the 4-month-old cat when he first saw him.

He was quite sweet when we first met, Santiago continued. “[He] immediately purred.”




Pinocchio is incredibly gregarious and makes friends with everyone he meets, both people and animals. Santiago said, “Pinocchio isn’t a shy character. He is quite assured and extends a warm welcome to everyone almost right away.

He comes up to everybody who enters the room and climbs up to their shoulder to perch, she continued. He enjoys playing, jumping around, and rubbing on you. He has a great disposition and loves everyone, including other people, cats, and dogs.

While being looked after in a foster home, Pinocchio had health issues that required surgery to correct his umbilical hernia and sternum placement.

The hospital staff loved him so much that they made him a Superman wrap to hide his sutures. During his subsequent check-up, they handed him a matching red cape.

Although Pinocchio is doing well, he won’t be adopted until he is in his late teens or early twenties because of his medical issues. As we don’t yet fully understand the scope of his future demands, Santiago said, “We don’t accept any applications or questions throughout therapy. “We know what his needs are right now, but they could change as he develops and changes.”


When Pinocchio is eligible for adoption, he will need a special home that will cherish him just the way he is. The kitten’s crooked face is the origin of Pinocchio’s lopsided grin, and no matter what happens, he won’t stop laughing.
