This helpless stray kitten was left to fend for itself on the busy streets of Istanbul, with nobody willing to lend a helping hand. People ignored her because of her facial deformities that made her look unattractive. However, the fate of this little feline took a positive turn when a compassionate 7-year-old girl appeared on the scene and transformed her life.
As a young girl stumbled upon a kitten by a dumpster in Istanbul, her heart immediately went out to the creature. The sight of the disfigured, dirty and terribly malnourished animal left her with no choice but to take it home and offer the love and care it desperately needed.
After convincing her father to cover the veterinary expenses, the kitten underwent a remarkable change. The feline had already captured the girl’s affection, leaving just one task – to choose a name.
Choosing the name Gülümser, meaning “she who smiles,” this adorable little kitten has formed an unbreakable connection with her new owner. Despite her lack of an upper lip and left ear, she is thriving and loving every moment of her new life.
This touching tale is a testament to the fact that perception of beauty varies from person to person.
