Kitten with head tilt and strong purring found its way into the heart of the family

A kitten with a tilted head overcame adversity and snuggled into his dream home.

A tiny orange kitten was taken to a Massachusetts veterinary clinic after being found injured outside. The kitten had a wound on its back and its head tilted as a result of an attack by another animal.

Despite the ordeal, the little tabby showed an incredible spirit and just wanted to be cuddled. He needed special care in order to heal and flourish. Tara Kay, the founder of the Odd Cat Sanctuary, was asked if she could take him in. “We have a lot of experience with head injuries. He was four weeks old and weighed only half a pound,” Tara told Love Meow.

The kitten named Murphy was doing surprisingly well, despite everything he’d been through. He was friendly, wanted to be loved, and turned on his purr motor when he was held.

“His head is permanently tilted, but his eyes are clear and vision appears normal.”

Tara started syringe-feeding the kitten around the clock to get him back to health. She took him to work at night to keep feeding and caring for him while giving him the attention he needed to thrive.

Murphy was quite a snuggly bug from the start. He insisted on being held or carried around in a purrito, soaking up the love of everyone around him.

The tabby boy gained weight and strength. When his wound healed well, he became more active and could move more steadily.

Murphy was so small but had a strong will to live. Once he found his position, his personality began to develop.

“He’s very smart and has the cutest personality. He purrs all the time and loves to be held and cuddled,” Tara shared with Love Meow.

The kitten discovered its inner calamity and became more curious and playful than ever before. He had an insatiable appetite and was growing by leaps and bounds.

He will likely have a little addiction for the rest of his life, but it doesn’t stop him from doing things like any other cat and loving life.

A champion at the vet, Murphy will captivate every heart he meets.

Adina, a veterinarian, met the sweet tabby and was immediately enthusiastic. The kitten snuggled right up against her and began to rumble with its adorable purr.

Adina was in love with the little bundle of joy that curled up in her arms as if it were where it should be.

“She wasn’t looking for a cat herself, but I think he just stole her heart. He’s so special, quirky and cute. You can’t help but love him when you meet him,” Tara told Love Meow.

After a long journey to recovery, Murphy, now renamed Mr. Bean, has moved into his home with the family of his dreams and has grown into a beautiful kitten.

Mr. Bean loves his large shark bed in his new accommodation and feels like royalty. He is well taken care of and has a doting human mother who takes care of all of his needs.

The tabby boy has grown so much since his adoption. He’s still that lovable cuddle bug who can’t get enough attention from everyone around him.
