Maverick the kitten was born with an extra chromosome but he doesn’t think he’s any different.
At six months old, Maverick was surrendered to the New York Animal Care Center when his former home could no longer keep him. His adorable crossed eyes and endearing personality instantly had all the staff smitten.
He greeted everyone with head bumps and endless purrs, and craved attention from volunteers. Due to limited resources at the shelter, volunteers began to look for a rescue that would give him the best chance at life.
