VIRAL: Sir Stuffington, the one-eyed ‘pirate' cat
Last Updated: 74 days ago
Move over, Grumpy Cat! There’s a new cat making waves on the Web, and his name is Sir Stuffington.
At just about 6 weeks old, the cat has just one eye. Trauma to his jaw left him with a facial deformity that gives him the appearance of a permanent sneer. It's unknown how the cat was injured.
The tiny, one-eyed, eye-patch-wearing feline is being fostered by Blazer Schaffer, an Oregon woman who said she gave him his unusual moniker because of his appearance, ABC News reported.
“Well, when I had initially seen the picture of him, I kind of thought he looked like a teddy bear that lost its stuffing,” she said. “And I thought, ‘Well, that’s incredibly undignified. I should add a “sir” in front of that,’” Schaffer said.
Hundreds of people across the country have inquired about adopting Sir Stuffington, but he was not quite ready for his forever home.
