Pitoe, a cat who suffered from scoliosis and poor health, was left behind by his previous owner. Luckily, he found a new family who gave him the love and care he needed. Since then, Pitoe has gained popularity on the internet because of his charming looks.
When people come across photos of Pitoe, a 4-year-old cat, they often comment on his bewildered expression and round, chubby body that resembles a ball. While many find him adorable, some express concern over his health, worrying that he may become overweight due to overeating. However, the reason behind Pitoe’s unique appearance is his rare condition of scoliosis in cats.
Marie’s family recently welcomed a 4-year-old British short-haired cat, who they named Pitoe. The feline has scoliosis which makes her body shorter than other cats. Marie’s parents are veterinarians and they rescued Pitoe when they found out that she was going to be abandoned by a cat seller due to her appearance. They fell in love with her and decided to take her home.
Marie’s parents always adored cats, but they were hesitant to adopt one due to the fear of them jumping over the balcony or bothering neighbors. However, this changed when they met Pitoe. Pitoe had scoliosis and was unable to jump high, which made him different from other cats. Marie’s parents felt that he was a perfect fit for their family and decided to adopt him. Later on, they eventually gave Pitoe back to his adoptive grandparents, who were delighted to have him. Overall, Pitoe was like a precious gift to Marie’s family.
Pitoe may not have the ability to leap to great heights like most cats do, but that doesn’t stop this furry feline from engaging in other activities that are typical of cats. Despite being just four years old, Pitoe can be found waddling around the house, running, playing, and scaling low surfaces with ease.
Marie reassures people who think Pitoe is overweight that his body shape is due to a crooked spine. Regular health checkups and a balanced diet are provided for him. Despite his troubles with eating and knocking over bowls, Pitoe surprises everyone with his happy and lively nature. He even greets guests and waits to be petted by laying at their feet.
Marie has taken to the internet to share the touching tale of Pitoe, with the aim of capturing the hearts of many. To her delight, Pitoe’s dedicated social media page quickly amassed over 3,000 followers within mere days. Her ultimate hope is to inspire others to consider adopting animals with unique needs.
