Sir Staffington was just a little kitten, but he turned out to be strong and combative.
He may not look like other cats, but he doesn’t know it. He is missing an eye and part of his mouth because he, his mother and his siblings were attacked by a raccoon when they were young. Unfortunately they did not survive, but Sir Staffington held on.
Sir Staffington was found wandering in Troutdale and taken to animal services where he underwent emergency surgery.
In addition to a missing eye and a damaged jaw, he also had an upper respiratory infection, a heart murmur and was covered in fleas and dirt.
When he was first seen, the vets weren’t even sure he would survive at all due to the severity of his injuries, but he defied everyone.
He had a rough start to life, but the following months were a breath of fresh air for this tough kitty. He then lived with a foster family, where he immediately bonded with his new mother, his cat siblings, and was eventually adopted.
Sir Staffington has grown from an injured little kitten who struggled to survive to an adult cat who is happy and now enjoying life. He still looks different, but he still plays, naps and acts like any other cat.
He is the very incarnation of the fighter and his story shows that you should never abandon anyone, especially your animal, whatever it is!
