Meet The Cat With An Extra Chromosome Put On Death Row Because She Looked A Little Different


This is Maya, a one year old tabby with a chromosomal abnormality. The bad luck that had accompanied her since she was born did not leave her as she grew up. Maya was found behind a Chinese restaurant and brought to a kill shelter, where she was supposed to be kill due to her unusual look and behavior.

Her life was coming close to an end, but then the Odd Cat Sanctuary found out and took her to shelter. Then a photo of her is posted on their Facebook page, and luck came to her at last. A family wanted to adopt her. We guess Maya couldn’t be happier because after all the suffering, she finally got to live in a loving home. Scroll down for photos of Maya, the anomaly cat.

This is the adopted cat Maya.

She’s got an extra chromosome.

Maya was found behind a Chinese restaurant and brought to a kill shelter.

She was put on death row because of her looks and slightly different behaviour.

No one thought anyone would want her.

The Odd Cat Sanctuary then found out and brought her to shelter.

The unusualness makes her look somewhat sad and confused.

Yes, she has vision issues.

That flattened nose makes her sneeze a lot.

Though a bit weird, she’s no where near ugly. No cat is ugly.

She is no different from other felines.

She’s curious.

Derpy.

Super playful.

And loves chin scratching.

She has her own cute toy.

There’s nothing more she’d ask from her new home.

Maya’s becoming an ambassador for special pets everywhere. Let’s congratulate her!

Please help us spread awareness of shelter animals, especially the ones with special needs, so more of them can find a home!
