Tulip had to endure many life trials, despite her still short life, but in her 10 months she continues to greet every day with a smile.
The kitten was found on the streets of Ontario, Canada. She was only about two weeks old when rescuers picked her up.
Tulip had an eye infection, but she still smiled when rescuers took a photo of her for their website.
Then she did not know that this particular picture would help find her owners.
Jenn and Chris have been looking for a company for their cat Pinecone for months. And suddenly they saw a smiling Tulip. And it worked.
When the couple arrived for the kitten, they couldn’t believe that she continued to smile, even at the shelter. It was love at first sight.
“As soon as we met her in person, we immediately fell in love with her looks and personality.”
“At first, we thought it was a random smile for advertising. But when we brought her home and started taking pictures, we realized that this is a constant feature of her. She always has a smile on her face.”
“I partly understand that her smile is a peculiarity of the colors. But on the other hand, I like to think that she is smiling, because she knows that in her 10 months she has already gone through so much and coped.”
“She constantly reminds us that everything will be fine, no matter how difficult it may seem at the moment. It’s hard to imagine our life without her smile. She added joy to our hearts and home. She really is like a tulip – always blooms again, and I think she knows that about herself.”
