Nobody Wanted Lily Because Of Her One-In-A-Million Face…But She Got The Last Laugh

One could make the argument that ALL cats are adorable.

Sure, there are many different breeds, some of which are wildly different from others, but cats really are beautiful creatures.

But every once in awhile, a cat is born with a very special anomaly and because of it, she really stands out.

Enter Lily, one of two orphans who were rescued from a terrible situation back in 2011.

Lily and her sister were left to die at a construction site and sadly, these were the only two kittens of the litter to survive.

Luckily, rescuers came along just in time and they were able to nurse the two kitties back to health.

But right from the get-go, they noticed something stunningly unique about Lily…

While both she and her sister had mostly white faces with some black markings, Lily had a strange abnormality you almost NEVER see in cats.

She was crosseyed!

Unfortunately, because of her unique look, the foster mother had difficulty finding her a home. Lily’s sister, who was not crosseyed, found a loving family relatively quickly.

But poor Lily, who was given the nickname “The Rorschach Cat,” just kept turning people away because of her eyes.

Well, that’s when the foster mom decided:

She was going to keep Lily and she would love her to pieces forever. And that’s exactly what she did.

This foster mom also gave Lily an adoptive sister; her name is Jezebel and she’s a gorgeous Calico. The two make quite the stunning pair!

Nowadays, Lily not only has all the comforts of a warm and loving home, she has a sister and companion, and she has even amassed a huge Instagram following.

So go ahead and call her crossed eyes an abnormality.

In the end, it didn’t hurt Lily one bit; in fact, she will forever be an internet sensation because of this “defect!” 🙂
