As his Instagram bio states, Maverick was born with googly eyes, hydrocephalus, and a chromosome abnormality.
By consequence, he looks a little different from other cats.
An exceptional kitty
He’s got a flat face, chameleon eyes, and a mouth that always stays open.
Maverick was dropped off at the Odd Cat Sanctuary of Massachusetts when he was only 6 months old. His family could no longer look after him, but the Sanctuary, which specialises in cats who are a little “special”, was only too happy to take him in and give him the care he needed.
A loving home for a loving cat
Described by carers as being loving with both humans and cats, chirping happily when given the opportunity to snuggle up on someone’s lap, he won over everyone’s hearts in no time.
So it’s no surprise that Maverick found a lovely home soon after! And the best part about his new family? He shares it with a brother who’s also special needs, just like him!
