Cat Daisy, who lives in a shelter in Sydney might be the most unfortunate one.
It didn’t go unnoticed that the cat’s face looks rather explicit, which is probably what prompted this adorable 9-year-old feline to go viral. The beautiful ragdoll cat has white and grey fur with a distinctive brown shape across her face which ends just at the tip of her nose.
When asked how did Daisy ended up at their shelter, The Mini Kitty Commune team member, Derek, told Bored Panda: “Daisy and her sister were part of an amazing rescue earlier in August. We get contacted a lot by people who’s parents have passed away and the will/estate didn’t have a provision for their cats. We even set up a bequest program for it as it happens when it’s least expected. In this instance, the two cats were very lucky that one of the family was able to go back to the house every day and feed them after Grandmother passed away. We rehome as many cats as we can, and we had a really good run of adoptions in August (Finally!! More on that later) and immediately we had the space we contacted the caregivers for Daisy and said they could bring them in. They were here the next day at our vets (we vet everything back through Abbotsbury Vet Clinic ) and both were really unhappy. It happens, they get depressed with all the change and they stop eating, so it was touch and go for a while. That’s when we noticed the facial markings “Hey, guys, you probably want to see this cats face” (insert various jokes) We had them both on fluids and after a week they went into our foster care program. The family were wonderful and made a donation to us to cover the costs that were coming from the vet work and that covered the costs and did well. Purebred cats move very quickly for the wrong reasons and we had a lot of inquiries for her. But as there was 2 of them so it was harder to find a home early… until the photo’s started going up and getting noticed.”
While some people may have been pushed away by the explicit marking on Daisy’s face, the attention she received eventually helped her find a home.
But after Daisy went viral so many people have fallen in love with the cat, that they even started to argue about what the distinctive shape actually resembles.
Some said it looks like an angel, others say they can clearly see the heart shape. However, most people couldn’t ignore the obvious – the cat deserves a loving home no matter how she looks!
