I adopted a cat from the humane society. I think she's beautiful and so sweet. When they first got her she had burns all over her neck. Someone tried setting her on fire, horrible!!! Her fur is starting to grow back and her burns are all healed.

My friend came over and saw Ivy and said "I would never adopt such an ugly cat. I would never adopt a cat anyway, more than likely they've lived a horrible life and are mean. I'm sorry but Ivy is ugly."

She's a black calico. I told my friend idgaf what she thinks, Ivy is my cat and I think she is beautiful. Sure she's had a rough life but she's never hissed or growled. She's a year old and has never known love.

Would you adopt a cat that had been horribly abused? She's had all of her shots and she's healthy.

Me too. I wanted to adopt a one eyed dog, and then one with 3 legs. DH said no. It makes me sad because I think if I don't adopt them who will? I try to stay away from animal shelters.

I think it's great that you adopted an "ugly" cat. I'm sure she is beautiful. I plan to adopt special needs cats when the time comes. They need love and I would give them a great life.

My dog came from a shelter and his feet were pretty mangled when they got him and he his fur never grew back on some of his toes. Looks pretty weird! I dont see a point in paying a bunch of money for a fancy purebred "attractive" pet. I love my goofy mutt!! I think he's cute and he is a damn good dog.

i wouldnt adopt a cat at all. but i would adopt a dog in that condition, so i guess if i liked cats, i would adopt a cat like that, too.
