Meet Apollo, The One Eyed Kitty Who Waited 1.5 Years To Find The Perfect Home

Every living thing is beautiful and deserves a chance to a life filled with endless joy and love. Unfortunately, not everyone gets this fair chance, particularly animals who depend on their looks to be adopted by their forever family.

One cat was rejected constantly because of the way he looks. No one wanted adopt him as he was deemed ugly. But everything happens for a reason. Apollo waited an year-and-a-half to have a human see beyond his physical appearance and see him for the amazing cat he truly is.

Apollo was rescued by the Michigan Cat Rescue on May 2015.

He was initially sent to be euthanized. But the president of the Michigan Cat Rescue, Nancy Hutchinson, couldn't bear at the thought of Apollo not being around.

In Nancy's eyes, Apollo is the most beautiful feline she has ever seen.

"I just happened to go into the shelter that day just to look around and I saw this beautiful cat sitting there," she recalls. "It's a high-kill shelter and they felt sorry for him so they didn't put him down yet."

Still, while at the shelter he developed a terminal upper respiratory infection.

His eye ruptured inside his head, requiring urgent medical care. Apollo lost one of his eyes in the process.

It was becoming impossible to find a home for Apollo.

Aside from only having one eye, Apollo was a senior cat. He had an amazing owner who sadly had to give him up when she had to go into a nursing home.

He waited patiently to be adopted.

"I recall one time a lady came up to him at an adoption event. He was sitting in a cage and she told him to his face that he was ugly," Hutchinson reveals. "I truly believe that he understood her because he put his head down. I could tell that he felt bad and it made me cry."
