He was haggard from being tossed into a trash compactor, but it helped him find a home.

Thanks Cher this is a feel good story. Two of my babies were in a dumpster tied up in plastic bags, when I heard tiny noises, not really mews but something. The vet told me they were about 4 weeks old and their lungs were filled with toxins from meth. They would not live for more than a week. They are now just a bit over 8 years old. Never give up!

I've been asked if I have any *pretty* cats or *normal* cats. Piffle! Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder ~ especially when you behold the beauty of their spirit.

Never seen an ugly cat...they're all handsome or beauties, depending on their personalities. Thank you for this great story - atill sucking up these happy endings. By the way, he is really a handsome gentleman.

I am certainly happy he was rescued-revenge for being dumped- but I would never have called him ugly boy. He was a beautiful boy he was in a horrid situation. Maybe I just have no sense of humor about this because it was such a disgusting thing for someone to do to a cat. hopefully the person who did this will also be found in a dumpster soon only in worse shape. sorry but I have little tolerance for the human species and especially one who would do this. he is living the good life now though thank goodness.

Sad to hear that people would put a cat in a plastic bag and toss him into a garbage compacter. I really wonder if the person who did that had him as a pet or if he/she grabbed him off the street - being a cat hater - and then did that to the cat?

It's a relief that he has recovered from the ordeal and that he is such a handsome one!

I see nothing ugly about this cat. God does not make mistakes. Look at the soul and not the surface and you will not find a bit of ugly. God Bless and protect all the animals in the world and many curses on those that abuse, abandon or kill an animal.
