2 disabled cats show physical differences don’t matter when it comes to love
Disabled pets like Onyx and Stanley are as lovable, caring and fun as all the rest. Just ask their owners.
Onyx is a 3-year-old black cat with a facial deformity, a cleft palate. She has no upper lip or nose, is missing a couple of teeth, and only grows whiskers on one side of her face.
Onyx’s owner, Cindy Houk of Butler, adopted Onyx from the Butler County Humane Society where she worked as a veterinary technician. Houk said she doesn’t mind Onyx’s differences and barely notices anymore.
“She’s kind of imperfectly perfect,” Houk said. “She’s just unique.”
