Because of his unique look, he even became a very popular cat on social media, where both Romeo and his owner Laura receive a lot of support.

After this short introduction, I suggest you keep reading and find out more about this moving story and the journey of one beautiful cat and its owner.

Meet Romeo The Cat

Before getting to know Romeo the cat better, check out this video and see how special this kitty is, especially when Romeo was just a kitten:

Romeo the cat is a male stray cat that gained popularity so fast. The thing about this cat is that it’s so different to other cats. But how is that possible?

Romeo was born with a facial deformity which means that his facial shape differentiates a lot from other cats. 

Due to this deformity, he was rejected by many pet parents while his litter mates were leaving for new homes, and that’s not all… Poor Romeo was even labeled as a cat that is too ugly to love, or too ugly to find a home.

However, a bright future was ahead of this fuzzy feline thanks to good people who know that not everything is about looks. 

One of the people that actually changed Romeo’s life was Laura Llacer, a director and co-founder of Santuario Campson Animal, an animal shelter that is located in Valencia, Spain.

Laura decided to share the story from her own experience; she said that one day when they were on a rescue mission in a Spanish village, she ran into a furry little kitten who had an unusual appearance. 

He had some kind of facial deformity, and no one wanted a cat with such an issue as it was too ugly compared to other cats, according to some people.

Luckily, Laura saw something special in this beautiful ginger boy, and she didn’t regret it. She brought the cat to their animal sanctuary, and the cat’s name was chosen to be Romeo.

Romeo was doing great in the sanctuary, and he adjusted to the new environment and people quickly. After a period, Laura noticed – that despite the face deformity – this kitty was behaving great. 

He was playful, affectionate, friendly, and lovely, just like many other cats. Even though people said that he was too ugly to love, it was actually his appearance that made him even more adorable and unique.

That Romeo is very special can also be seen from the things he did. He quickly became friends not only with other cats in the sanctuary but with every other animal there, including turkeys, dogs, chickens, ducks, bunnies, and others. 

The rescuers also told how Romeo went missing one day, but after the search, they found him lying next to the sick chicken, and everyone was amazed by that deed. It turned out that Romeo was able to sense that the chicken, too, needed some affection and comfort.

After settling and adjusting to a new life, which turned out to be great for Romeo, Laura decided to share this touching story and the everyday activities of Romeo the cat on social media so that more people could understand that he is just a normal cat who has a unique-looking face which makes him the most interesting cat in the world.

Romeo the cat has an Instagram profile – Romeo the special kitten where you can actually see why Romeo is the best cat ever.

Romeo was even the reason why the sanctuary started a fundraiser to help and protect other animals who are abandoned and alone, or those who share a similar story to Romeo.

After hearing this story, most people are left speechless and realize how certain things can change. From the kitty who was thought to be too ugly to love and who was rejected by everyone, to the kitty that finds happiness thanks to Laura Llacer.

Romeo the cat was at first destined to be left on the streets because no one wanted him due to his facial deformity. Luckily, good things were waiting for Romeo in the future. 

Thanks to Laura Llacer, the owner of the animal sanctuary in Valencia, Spain, Romeo was able to find a new and loving home, surrounded by people who love him and see nothing else but a normal cat.

Even though people thought that Romeo would never find a home because he is too ugly, Laura has proven them wrong and taught everyone a lesson: Not to judge a book by its cover, because Romeo is a special kitten, despite his appearance, who deserves all the best in life.
