Smush is breaking barriers on being unique and proving it’s ok to be different. Her face bears an exceptional look appearing to have a squished nose. Smush’s adorable little face is the result of several genetic abnormalities. Photographer Shannon Jackson saw the beauty of this little kitten’s face while volunteering at Helping Hands Pet Rescue. Being responsible, Jackson consulted her wife and the two decided to foster Smush to see if she would be a good fit for their family.

It only took one week before the couple adopted Smush. It takes a lot of work to keep this gorgeous cat running. She came into the shelter in bad shape. “When she was a tiny kitten she wasn’t eating on her own so she had to be syringe fed every four hours or she would have been euthanized,” Jackson explained. “She had a terrible case of ringworm and was on a bunch of medications and had a lot of Lyme baths. She also had an upper respiratory infection. All of this was cleared up when she was in her foster homes.

The kitten that could have thousands of fans and the following is growing by the minute. This isn’t the only fur baby in the house. Smush shares her home with three-legged dog Bean, two other canines, three cats and one hedgehog.

    Such an inspiring post. Smush is so cute, loved her pictures, Sad to know about the problems and abnormalities she is suffering from. She needs to be taken care of. Blessings to her. Such animals must have a proper consultation from doctors.

    How awesome that they chose to take her in. There is not many laws pertaining to animals which is probably how these abnormalities happened (inbreeding or the mother cat being too young or sick.) It is animals like this that need love and care.
