No one bothered to stop and help this disfigured kitty who spent its miserable days living on the streets of Istanbul. People were just too frightened to even look at the cat’s face as it was ‘too ugly’ – until one brave and kind 7-year-old girl showed up and changed the cat’s life forever…
The girl found the cat between the garbage cans – starved, malnourished, in desperate need of some love. She took the kitty home and begged her father to do everything to save the unfortunate feline. The cat was immediately taken to the vets who gave her proper medicine, and even surgically repaired the roughest of features.
Now the cat not only looks different, she also has a different life. People named the kitty Gülümser, which means “she who always smiles.”
