Lenny came in as a stray, but now has been adopted by one of our technicians. We don't know if his smashed-sideways face is from an old injury or some congenital defect, but other than some snorting and messy eating habits, it doesn't slow him down one bit. This ug-dorable kitty is quite the character.

[–]Mustbhacks 1244 points1245 points  (12 children)

He looks like when you're first learning to draw things in perspective.

[–]DOCTORATEINDOWNVOTES 74 points75 points  (1 child)

Yeah, and you think "hey this doesn't look bad!" and you show people and this is what they see

[–]lumpyheadedbunny 95 points96 points  (3 children)

he's always a little tilted 😂

[–]killspeed 49 points50 points  (2 children)

So like the Overwatch community

[–]Cheesenip20 30 points31 points  (2 children)

It’s Picasso !

[–]Northwindlowlander 24 points25 points  (1 child)

I would have had to name him Pablo.

[–]brooklyn_tweed 13 points14 points  (1 child)

Pawlo Picatsso

[–]windwoker 2 points3 points  (0 children)

If Picasso drew cats.

[–]TNC_123 415 points416 points  (6 children)

Lenny is beyond precious and regardless of what he looks like he is a handsome boy. I’m so glad he was adopted and will be well loved and taken care of. I absolutely love Lenny.

[–]MrGuttFeeling 30 points31 points  (2 children)

This is like the opposite of most comments I see on the internet, I love it.

[–]TrollinTrolls 6 points7 points  (1 child)

I'm going to subscribe to your comments. I want a daily dose of this every morning.

[–]dethklokalypse42069 52 points53 points  (4 children)

What a good boy! So glad to hear he has a home. Is his shirt wet because he drools?

[–]bearsandstairs 35 points36 points  (1 child)

The fact that you called it his shirt has made my entire day

[–]dethklokalypse42069 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Haha! I always referred to it that way, as well as the matching pants and socks! Nothing beats a good pair of fluffy cat pants!

[–]Dragoness42[S] 64 points65 points  (1 child)

He just finished eating (messily, gravy canned food) then went to wash himself with his messy mouth. He doesn't always end up damp like that.

[–]BeckyfromHR 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Are whiskers normally that long?

[–]DanishWeddingCookie 31 points32 points  (0 children)

Does he have vision in both eyes?

Edit: oh I just saw where you answered that already. Glad to hear

[–]sushipusha 66 points67 points  (4 children)

This cat has CHARACTER!

[–]TNC_123 19 points20 points  (1 child)

He definitely has a TON OF CHARACTER!! Sweet little fella!!!

[–]Crittopolis 7 points8 points  (0 children)

*slaps the fluffy(figuratively)*

This baby can hold so much character!

[–]alyinthehouse 5 points6 points  (1 child)

I spot a fan of Crybaby 👀

[–]greffedufois 15 points16 points  (1 child)

He looks like he's a cartoon that was hit in the face with a frying pan. (god I hope not)

Somehow this makes him endearing though. I'm glad he has a home and is doing well despite his injury. He looks cuddly!

[–]NauticalPhoenix 24 points25 points  (2 children)

Shoulda named him Salvador Dali.

[–]maysiinzo 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That made me laugh out loud!

[–]snoeprol 7 points8 points  (0 children)

I fucking love you thanks for taking in a cat like this.

[–]Ctotheg 13 points14 points  (0 children)

I’d like to step in here and also offer advice that was neither called for, nor do I have the professional experience to give.

This thread is amusing with all advice.

[–]Daviemoo 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I happen to think he’s super adorbs :3 I’m glad he’s got a home ❤️

[–]Throwaway_Old_Guy 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Shhhhhhh! Don't tell him he doesn't look like all the other cats. You want to ruin his self-confidence?

[–]bcupftw 3 points4 points  (0 children)

[–]isaac9092 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I’m glad he found a home, because all things considered I wouldn’t mind having a disfigured car myself, I just find this cats face creepy ;-;

[–]Admiral-ManyThanks 1 point2 points  (0 children)

You guys are lucky :) he's adorable and handsome! 😍

[–]SourCreamWater 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Has he been x-rayed to make sure the bones aren't still broken?

[–]zipadeedodog 988 points989 points  (13 children)

Should have called him Picasso.


[–]endymion2300 314 points315 points  (3 children)


[–]alexandergutt 8 points9 points  (0 children)

This is especially funny in Norwegian, as the Norwegian word for purr, "male", also means to paint

[–]Uncle_Meat 12 points13 points  (0 children)

I wonder if he'd look normal if Picasso painted him?

[–]little_shmink 5 points6 points  (0 children)

My aunts cat was Picasso. Pico for short.

[–]log00 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Salivador Dali

[–]t3nchi 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Or just Pablo maybe?

[–]eazy_flow_elbow 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Damnit, of course someone thought about this already.

My roommates and I adopted and paid the vet bills for our neighbour's cat who got severely burned in a house fire. The owner lost everything and didn't have the money for the $2200 vet bill. So we pooled our money and brought Caramel aka Carl home. Her face was burned very badly. She lost an eyelid and ear and eventually the eye. It was pretty gross actually. She would always come and rub her puss eye on you.

She lived an additional 11 years after that accident and just passed away last fall.

She had a evolution of names Caramel > Carl > Carlos > Carlos Mancia > Melty Mancia

RIP Melty

[–]Seg_x 6 points7 points  (2 children)

Poor thing

[–]FrozenOcean420 5 points6 points  (1 child)

She was a very happy cat. 0 fucks given.

[–]Seg_x 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I've been a firefighter for almost 9 years now; I remember one of my first fires, it was a 12 unit apartment; One of my buddies I had been hired on with was manning a ladder on one side and this random ass cat was on the roof! My friend was able to hold the cat all of 3 seconds before it noped the fuck outta his arms and jumped off the roof... The cat landed fine and ran off! I'm bout to open a beer for Caramel, rip firecat.

[–]Winobaisdark 12 points13 points  (0 children)

[–]GrryTehSnail 29 points30 points  (2 children)

Let him squanch in his cage in peace

[–]thedailywumbo16 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Goddamnit beat me to it!

[–]l4dlouis 250 points251 points  (0 children)

I hope beyond anything that it was from birth because I really don’t wanna have to be pissed off at something i can’t help. But bless you for taking him in op, not many would have

[–]pete-my 71 points72 points  (0 children)

Lenny is one tough cat. To have endured whatever left his face that way and it to have completely healed, that is some strength!! What a trooper. I’m so glad he’s found a forever home, sounds like he won the jackpot. I love him 😍

[–]sonic7777 95 points96 points  (1 child)

I wanna see updated pictures of a happy little guy

[–]Lennythecat18 1 point2 points  (0 children)

You can follow him on Instagram @lennythecat18

[–]rachelmarie7 33 points34 points  (0 children)

Awwww. Hugs and kisses for that baby.

[–]katrinkabuttlin 52 points53 points  (0 children)

Look at him! So glad he has a furever home 😍

[–]incaseofemergancy 52 points53 points  (4 children)

does this cute nugget have an instagram account? I'd love to follow his adventures!

[–]Justanothergamerwife 23 points24 points  (0 children)

I'd follow this cat in a heartbeat

[–]Lennythecat18 8 points9 points  (0 children)

His Instagram account is lennythecat18

[–]twstrchk 19 points20 points  (1 child)

Does he have vision in both eyes? (they look different)

[–]Dragoness42[S] 48 points49 points  (0 children)

As far as we can tell- the eyes themselves aren't damaged, just the lids pulled in different ways by his nose asymmetry.

[–]Stink_Pot_Pie 80 points81 points  (8 children)

Bless his sweet little heart. Hey, Lenny, looks aren’t everything, hon.

[–]GreatScottLadies 37 points38 points  (0 children)

With a name like Stinky Pot Pie, that should probably be your family motto.

[–]hakuinzenji7 16 points17 points  (3 children)

Look at this pet cemetery lookin mother fucker, i adopted an ugly cat on purpose once, because i thought no one else would take him ..turned into my best friend for like 17 years

[–]CubbieCat22 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Good for you awesome human

[–]hakuinzenji7 1 point2 points  (1 child)

My awesomeness is relative but that cat was special..in his later years he would sit in front of the neighbors house wall and just meditate for hours ..where i believe in his younger years he would hunt mice...but once he brought a dead mouse home to me like a gift and i slapped the shit out his nose..and he saw it upset me..he never did that again ..he seemed like an old soul..he never technically died..just disappeared when he became skin an bones.. too old i guess.. I like to think he ascended to Nirvana or something 😢

[–]rachelrebates 34 points35 points  (1 child)

Well he was hugged and kissed one side and they weren't finished when he found you. They didn't get to the other side to make him look even. Therefore you must continue the kissing mission until he says turn the other cheek.

[–]CubbieCat22 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I'm not crying, you're crying!!!

[–]danoll 15 points16 points  (3 children)

It really makes me sad to think of what he has had to go through his entire life.

[–]joescott2176 29 points30 points  (1 child)

Poor little guy.

[–]themoonwatchyousleep 11 points12 points  (0 children)

I love him.

[–]The_Original_Gronkie 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Poor little dude obviously had a rough and painful past. I'm glad he's found a good home where he'll discover that life can be happy for a good kitty.

[–]BiGPiNK1985 25 points26 points  (0 children)

I would adopt the shit out of this little guy

[–]hujassman 8 points9 points  (0 children)

I'm glad he has a good home so that he can put any bad experiences behind him.

[–]Spellbindehr 63 points64 points  (27 children)

That's an injury from a traumatic impact. He should see a special vet, and he will need surgery to help him live a long life.

[–]Dragoness42[S] 87 points88 points  (26 children)

That is what we suspect, but other than a little snorting, he's perfectly functional as-is and doesn't really need reconstruction.

[–]SwedishMeatballGravy 69 points70 points  (25 children)

doesn't really need reconstruction.

But is that what the vet said or what you said? His right eye (left in the pic) kind of worries me.

EDIT: Guys, chill. I didn't know OP was a vet and this comment wasn't meant to come off as passive aggressive. Was just genuinely curious about the health of his eye, not the aesthetics.

[–]Dragoness42[S] 248 points249 points  (7 children)

It's what I said, and I am a vet. The other vets at our clinic said the same. The eye looks funny in the pic, but he can blink it all the way and nothing rubs on it, so we see no need to mess with things now with whatever trauma it was long-healed. The biggest concern we had was if any of his mis-aligned teeth were poking him in the mouth, but they don't seem to be causing any trouble.

[–]RaisinsB4Potatoes 100 points101 points  (5 children)

[–]Davetek463 21 points22 points  (0 children)

He's the guy who's going to burn your house down. With the lemons.

[–]SwedishMeatballGravy 26 points27 points  (0 children)

Ah that's good. Glad he's got a good home now.

[–]Sethypootheseal 33 points34 points  (2 children)

Surgeries like that are very expensive. If the cat is functioning as is why bankrupt the shelter or whoever decides to adopt him to get him fixed. If he's living a happy life and can't see from one eye just love him and give him a home.

[–]SwedishMeatballGravy 42 points43 points  (1 child)

Man that comment went on a rollercoaster. +10 to -6 in an hour.

I wasn't being passive aggressive, I was curious if the vet had said the cat doesn't need reconstruction, I was worried about the eye.

I didn't know OP was a vet, nor did I say there was anything wrong with the cat. I would adopt this guy in a heart beat, you're just assuming I wouldn't because I made a comment worried about his health? You chill bro.

[–]ianrobbie 11 points12 points  (0 children)

See, this is why I sometimes hesitate to comment on Reddit. You made a perfectly logical observation and got shot to shit for it.

Thanks for having the cat's best interests at heart. OP didn't state he was a vet so how were you to know?

[–]cheezydan 3 points4 points  (0 children)

[–]bobert3469 2 points3 points  (0 children)

We have a cat that has this same disability. Some kittens when they're born get an infection in their eyes from there mother's milk. Without ocular neosporin, the eyes and the 2nd eyelid swell from the inflammation. If it's not caught in time, blindness and permanent eye swelling are the result. Unless both eyes are infected, it don't seem to affect them too much, it's just kind of sad to see a poor kitten or cat go through this.

[–]JoseElChapo 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Good for whoever adopted him! Much love

[–]Muavius 2 points3 points  (1 child)

The snorting will grow on you. Have a cat with asthma and some allergies, and if he's not in the room snorting and snoring somewhere by the bed, I can't fall asleep.

[–]sjanee11 2 points3 points  (1 child)

His brother probably hit him in the face with a shovel. Also he is super friggin adorable. Glad he got a forever home 😍

[–]loridee 2 points3 points  (0 children)

My guess would be it was a congenital defect, possibly caused by a teratogen introduced during development in the womb, maybe? I would have named him Picasso, definitely. Love is the real beauty, I think.

[–]Kyezero000 6 points7 points  (0 children)

This post needs an updated pic, after adoption.

[–]Dragoness42[S] 28 points29 points  (1 child)

This actually is after adoption- he was adopted by an employee and she brings him in to work with her sometimes.

A decade from now this cat will unfairly appear on the 'bad taxidermy' websites.
