Every day, a senior cat with no ears waited for his forever home at the shelter, and he looked up with hope for his new human family. He never gave up hope, and then his angel appeared at the front door.
A graduate student named Molly Lichtenwalner was looking for a way to cope with her anxiousness.
“As a result of an automobile accident, I was experiencing acute anxiety… I felt it was time to adopt an animal to assist me cope with my anxiety because nothing helped me more than cuddling with some furry buddies “Molly informed me.
Cats had always been a part of her life growing up on a farm. “When I was ready for a cat, I promised myself that I would only adopt an adult cat with special needs (the ones who are so difficult to find homes for).”
She went on PetFinder and saw a 9-and-a-half-year-old cat with a strange appearance. “I knew he was the one when Otitis appeared.”
“I questioned further about him with the rescue organization that fostered and cared for him (the Feline Rescue Association of Baltimore).”
Due to huge cysts that his previous owners couldn’t afford to treat, he lost his ears. They handed him up to FRA.
Otitis is deaf as a result of his ears being removed, but that doesn’t bother Molly. “I was the first one to ever apply for him,” says the applicant.
Otitis knew he was in his forever home the day he was adopted.
He emerged from his shell and transformed into a little cuddling bug!
He loves sitting on warm laptops.
And he loves showing his fluffy belly!
“He’s my Emotional Support Animal, and he constantly cuddles with me at night and when I’m upset or having a panic attack.”
“At times, he’s the only thing that can help me relax. He’s the most amazing thing I’ve ever done, and he rescued me, not me.”
He’s so happy to be living in his forever home.
