This Cat Looks Like A Pirate, But That Just Makes His Mom Love Him Even More!

Wesley is a little pirate kitty who has one eye and an adorable scalleywag grin on his face. Every day he waited in the shelter, but people just passed him by until 6 months later he found someone who could see the beauty in this special little guy.

Pro Tip: If you want your human to wake up by 5 AM, just attack her toes under the covers. Repeatedly. Or paw at the plastic bag by her bed for a good 40 minutes straight. Works every time ? #snagglepuss #photooftheday #love #catsofinstagram #catstagram #catlovers #catlady #piratecat

“I met Wesley for the first time a couple of days after he was dropped off (at the shelter). I was in love, but I couldn’t afford him yet and just KNEW he would be adopted in no time,” Wesley’s human told Love Meow. “A lot of people just didn’t think he was very pretty to look at, and he was labeled special needs due to his congestion issues. I took him home and the rest is history.”

Another day of gazing out the window, watching the birds ? and the people ??and wondering why in the heck you people have to honk your horns so much while I’m trying to be all meditative n’ stuff ????? #joysoflivingonthetownsquare #snagglepuss #photooftheday #love #catsofinstagram #catstagram #kitties
