Pinocchio (Spanish: Pinocho) is a 3-month-old kitten who was rescued in Los Angeles, California, in mid-June (United States). He had the look of a 5- to 6-week-old kitten when he was discovered, and when he was rescued, the kitty was relieved to receive the care he needed to recover.
Little Pinocchio had a slight upper respiratory illness, an umbilical hernia, and his nose and mouth were unusually shaped, giving him a unique appearance.
The kitten was taken up by the Friends for Life Rescue Network shelter. They determined that his look is caused by a congenital abnormality that causes his jaw to seem misplaced.
He was thirsty and emaciated when he arrived, incredibly underweight and flea-infested.
Friends for Life Rescue Network founder Jacqueline DeAmor says:
“He was ravenous and downed two cans of food, which was a lot for his little physique.”
She had a lengthy snooze on a comfortable bed to replenish her energy once her tummy was full. The lovely little cat learned to move and seek attention and activities gradually and with a balanced diet.
Little Pinocchio feels pleased when he sees his rescuers and tries to catch their attention with meows and purrs.
Jacqueline went on to say:
“When I enter into the room, he gets quite thrilled and loves to play.” He’s boisterous, inquisitive, energetic, and really sweet. He enjoys running and chasing balls.
Pinocchio is a very happy cat who is getting better every day; he is extremely active and lively, and he will soon see a dental specialist and a neurological specialist to get all of the treatment he needs. The kitten appears to be in good care and likes his trips to the veterinarian.
The cat is flying cheerfully all over the place, according to the shelter director, and is particularly fond of new toys.
“This little rogue is as amusing as they come. He’s gaining weight and devouring everything in sight. Pinocchio’s situation is improving.”
In the shelter, the small cat likes being the center of attention and spreads his paws as people pass by. Pinocchio is unconcerned about his appearance and enjoys every day.
