This cat, whose appearance is one of a kind, was on the brink of not making it but was ultimately saved and nurtured by his owners and foster father cat.
Every animal in the world has something unique about them, be it their character, looks, or poise. While some features may not be as typical as others, they’re no less beautiful. Today’s story is about Fedya, who, against all odds, survived his infancy, and has become an internet phenomenon thanks to his unique-looking face and other goofy features.
Fedya had a tough childhood. He was born as one of two kittens to a stray mother that found shelter in the backyard of Natalya, a cat lover from Rostov, Russia. Fedya was born underdeveloped, weak and sick, and the owner speculates that he’d been dropped quite a few times while he was carried over fences, which might have caused him to look the way he does. Soon after being born, he and his sibling lost their mother. The future looked bleak.
But his fortunes turned. Natalya nursed Fedya back to health and took care of him, as she suspected people wouldn’t want to adopt a sick cat. After a few weeks, Natalya’s other cat named Handsome (Krasavchik) adopted Fedya as his son, and cleaned and licked him. From that point onwards, Krasavchik became a fatherly figure to the poor cat.

As for Krasavchik, which means handsome in Russian, he also has an interesting story of why he’s living with Natalya’s family. “Handsome was our neighbors’ cat, he came to visit us. When he noticed Fedya, he began to look after him, and we realized that our kitten really needed him. We have good neighbors, they allowed Handsome to live with us. This is how this little touching cat family was created!”

Fedya’s Face Is Very Unique And Easy To Recognize
Natalya told: “Fedya has been suffering from allergies for six months now. His eyes are watery and his nose is congested. So far there is no way to find out what is causing it. But we are doing everything to keep him healthy.”
As for Fedya’s peculiar look, Natalya is puzzled, as there might’ve been many reasons for it. “We do not know why Fedya looks like this and is a little behind in development. We assume that these are complications of his condition after birth, he was very weak and was dying. Either that, or it’s a genetic disorder. The analysis for genetics was not done.”
The owners of Fedya have also been following closely how his sister is doing, and “Fedya’s sister is doing well! We have followed what happened to her. She grew up, became a beautiful cat, her name is Elsa. She has already had two litters of kittens, striped just like her! We’ve seen pictures of her.

He does not know how to caress like an ordinary cat, he just cuddles with his whole body, like a dear one, closes his eyes and purrs, it’s wonderful!” On one of the posts, Natalya also said that Fedya purrs very loudly, just like his mother.
