Woman Adopts Earless Cat, And Is Rewarded With A Priceless Gift.

When you think of a cat, the whiskers, button nose, slanted eyes, fur, the meow, and oh, yes, of course the ears, come to mind. But this little rascal is missing one of those crucial elements... his ears. Now imagine going through life deaf. Life would be pretty tough, but to also lose your ears is literally adding insult to injury. Just ask this adorable cat who has to endure a sound-free existence. Naturally, no one wanted a defective cat so finding a home for this poor little fellow was tough. It almost seemed as if this gorgeous kitty was doomed to roam the world without an owner, but then something awesome happened that changed it and a woman named Molly's life forever.

This is Otitis, (killer name, we know!) and he's unlike most other cats.

He's not just missing a pair of ears, but he's also deaf too.

Although he's certainly getting plenty of love now, it wasn't always the case.

The 9-and-a-half-year-old cat was abandoned by his original owner after his cysts infected ears were removed.

Despite not having any ears, he's still pretty freaking cute.

He's extremely loving and likes to snuggle and fill his new owner with lots of love.

Otitis seemed condemned to live out his remaining years all alone in a shelter.

But then Molly Lichtenwalner decided it was time for a pet, and she chose him. He may have been defected in the eyes of others, but to her, he was complete, he was beautiful. He was one of a kind.

Molly and Otitis have the perfect symbiotic relationship.

A car accident left the grad student with a terrible bout of anxiety disorder. Thankfully, her new furry little friend was able to help her emotionally cope with her illness and in the process she helped him cope with his deafness.
