Sir Stuffington, the disfigured yet adorable kitten is the latest Internet sensation. A simple photo of Sir Stuffington donning an eye patch went viral yesterday to become the most popular pirate on the web. As the photo went viral, Sir Stuffington’s owner began selling prints of the photo to raise money for a local animal shelter.
Sir Stuffington was found earlier this month in Troutdale, Ore. Riddled with diseases and traumatic injuries to his face. Blazer Schaffer adopted Sir Stuffington from the animal shelter that rescued the ailing kitten and later posted the pirate pic to Facebook. The eye patch covers his obviously missing eyeball and his snarl is permanent as a result of a fractured jaw.
When the photo went viral, Schaffer has since printed and sold the photos of the pirate kitty with all proceeds going to the shelter that rescued Sir Stuffington, the Multnomah County Animal Shelter.
An official Sir Stuffington Facebook page has already surpassed 36,000 likes.
When he grows in a few months, Sir Stuffington will have to have half of his teeth removed because they will hurt his lip. Once he is fully recovered, he will go up for adoption and will be in need an extra loving home.
