As a cat lover, I strongly believe that every feline is a gorgeous creature. However, I have always felt a special affection for cats with special needs. These brave furballs often don’t realize that they are any different from other cats and amaze us with their resilience and determination to live their lives to the fullest. One of my favorite special needs cats is Scar – a stunning feline who looks like a pirate with his unique appearance.
To me, his unique features only add to his beauty. But, once you get to know him, you will find that his true beauty lies within. Despite his challenging start in life as a malnourished and sickly kitten, Scar has transformed into a fluffy and charming head-turner with lots of love and care. All it took was one person to take a chance on him when nobody else wanted him.
How did Scar become a part of your life? Well, on November 28th, 2020, I stumbled upon Scar on the Croatian classifieds website “njuskalo”. Despite his recent eye operation due to inflammation, no one seemed interested in him. Being the first to respond, I learned that Scar was located about 100km away from me in the city of Rijeka. After a drive lasting an hour and a half, I finally met Scar who was initially afraid of strangers and hid behind his carrier. However, after he gathered some courage and came into my arms, I knew that I was the one for him. When we arrived home, Scar took a few weeks to adjust and step out of my bedroom.
In terms of personality, Scar can be described as timid, scared, and stubborn. He dislikes baths and is afraid of new people and noises but is attached to his owners. He also has a funny and empathetic side to him. As for hobbies, Scar enjoys sunbathing, catching lizards, drinking rainwater, and playing with his olive branch toy. He has three cat friends and one dog friend who he shares his home with.
Overall, Scar is a special cat who always manages to be there when he is needed most.
Do you know what makes Scar unique? Well, for starters, he has a disability that sets him apart. It’s remarkable how he always seems to appear out of thin air whenever I think about him. He’s a quick study, and he readily responds to commands like “high five,” “turn,” and “sit” in exchange for his favorite treats. And let me tell you, he absolutely adores his blanket. Whenever he’s on it, he just melts into a state of pure bliss. He’ll flop over on his side, purr contentedly, and even make biscuits. If you stop petting him, he’ll gaze up at you with the sweetest expression, asking for more. And when winter rolls around, you can bet that he’ll be burrowing under that blanket to stay warm and cozy.
I want to express my gratitude to the owner of Scar for giving me the opportunity to showcase his story and pictures with the Cattitude Daily audience. If you’re interested in learning more about this adorable feline, make sure to follow him on Instagram.
