Teddy the kitten has an expression that belies his young age. He was taken in to the Odd Cat Sanctuary in Salem, Massachusetts for a shot at a better life.
When an animal rescuer with a litter of kittens got in touch with Tara Kay, founder of the Odd Cat Sanctuary, she immediately noticed the small grey kitten. Even at such a young age, his skin had an abnormal elasticity and droopiness.
She saw his exceptional potential and sought out to us to adopt him. Tara, whose sanctuary helps mostly disabled cats and kittens, told Love Meow, “We agreed.”
The moment the cat encountered a sanctuary worker, his purring machine went into overdrive. He purred incessantly. He was quite affectionate and would often give hugs or turn over for a belly massage.
As a result of being born with Feline cutaneous asthenia, often known as Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (EDS), Teddy has a fragile and fragile body.
