Cat With Extra Chromosome To Be Put Down Because She Looked A Bit Different

new

Meet Maya, a year-old tabby cat with a chromosomal abnormality. She was found behind a Chinese food restaurant and brought to a kill shelter, where she was put on death row because she looked and acted a little differently.

 

Nobody thought anyone would want her.

 

Then, the Odd Cat Sanctuary found out and brought her to a foster home. They posted her photo on their Facebook page, and that’s how her forever family found her.

 

This is our adopted cat Maya
