His Face Is Unlike Any Other, But His Heart Is Pure Gold

He might have a bit of a snoring problem, but Snuffy the cat gets all the love he needs. He was found as a stray 16 years ago and brought to a shelter.

This little baby was having a hard time finding a home before of his unique condition, but two days before Christmas this special little man met Elle.

Elle saw him and right away knew he was the one. Even though he was born without a nasal bridge or nose bone, his tiny snorts stole her heart.

She named him Snuffy and recognized he might be a little special. Elle said that "He not only looks a little different from other cat, he wheezes when he breathes, snores when he sleeps, sneezes a lot and snorts like a pig."

None of that has stopped her from loving her buddy for the last 16 years. He is actually quite the adventurous little guy, his owner says that "he loves going for walks outside on his harness. Sometimes we take him to the park where he loves meeting new people."

He even went for a visit to the shelter on the 16th anniversary of his adoption to show them how grateful he is they took him in when he needed help.

"Snuffy is super cuddly, every day he jumps in my lap, stands on his hind legs with his front paws on my shoulders and gives me kisses," Elle said of her little cutie, "He's the sweetest boy and we are so lucky to have him in our lives."
