No one bothered to stop and help this stray cat who spent its miserable days living on the streets of Istanbul. People were just too frightened to even look at the cat’s facial deformities as it was ‘too ugly’ – until one brave and kind 7-year-old girl showed up and changed the ugly cat’s life forever…

The girl found the abandoned animal between garbage cans – starved, malnourished, in desperate need of some love. She took the tiny kitten home and begged her father to do everything to save the unfortunate feline. The disfigured 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, but she also has a different life. People named the kitty Gülümser, which means “she who always smiles.” If this story didn’t restore your faith in humanity, we don’t know what would!
