We all know that every cat is special in its own way. Today, let me share the heartwarming story of a sweet kitty named Penny, who found her forever home in a most unexpected and beautiful manner.
Penny’s journey began five years ago when she was welcomed into the loving arms of her forever mom, Taylor. At the time, Taylor was working at a vet clinic when a coworker approached her with a request to foster a special cat.
Little did Taylor know that this cat, Penny, would steal her heart forever.
Despite Penny’s unique condition called cerebellar hypoplasia, where her movement and coordination are a bit different due to a smaller cerebellum, Taylor instantly fell in love with Penny’s personality. Taylor shares:
“Not a lot of people take on special needs pets.”
…but she was determined to provide Penny with a loving home.
“I realized she wasn’t going anywhere and so I officially adopted her.”
Penny, while dealing with her condition, remains a vibrant and healthy kitty. Taylor reassures that Penny is not in discomfort:
“She has no discomfort because of it. I’ve seen a few people look at her and immediately think like, what’s wrong with her? Or, oh, she’s so different.”
However, some might see Penny’s uniqueness as a challenge, but Taylor emphasizes that it’s Penny’s personality that truly matters.
“I fell in love with her just because of her personality and who she is.”
Penny is super cuddly and very sweet, and after spending some time with her, Taylor realized that every day Penny asks for one thing and one thing only… Cuddles!
However, the most interesting thing about it is the way she asks for it! Check it out:
Isn’t this the most adorable thing you’ve ever seen?
Penny does it every day and if Taylor lets her, she stays snuggled on her chest for hours. She doesn’t like going out of the house, no matter if it’s just a car ride, a walk, or a trip to the vet, Penny hates it.
“She loves the balcony. She loves to watch the birds, and she can be feisty when she wants to, mostly with her little brother Kaz.”
Through Penny’s story, Taylor aims to raise awareness about special needs pets, highlighting that they deserve love and care just like any other pet.
“Special needs pets deserve a home as much as any other cat. They just were born a little different and they have different ways of getting around, different ways of seeing the world but they’re also strong and determined.”
The bond between Taylor and Penny is truly remarkable. Taylor’s devotion to her unique feline friend is heartwarming, and Penny’s genuine personality shines through in the comfort of her loving home. As Taylor beautifully puts it:
“The two of us have loved each other since the day we met.”
