Found as an emaciated stray with damaged ears and a nasal infection, Nutmeg once had very little to smile about. In fact, from the look on his face he appeared to be the world’s saddest cat.

Taken in by the Humane Society of Greater Rochester, New York, Nutmeg gradually regained his health, and started to show his sweet personality. Still, he waited at the shelter for nine long months without anyone willing to adopt him.

Then one day, life changed for Nutmeg. A couple visited the shelter and fell in love with the downtrodden kitty. And soon, they proudly shared a photo of Nutmeg with a smile on his face.

Thank you to the shelter and the adoptive family for giving Nutmeg the happy life he deserves.
