Meet Ivan The Twisted, a weird little kitten that couldn’t find a home. His malformation put down a lot of people when they came to adopt. Ivan was born without radial bones in both his two front legs, each paw having two missing toes. He also has the back left leg deformed. But this doesn’t mean he cannot move, he ‘army crawls’ around and is quite a charming cat. He also has an Instagram account and he is very popular. But he was not just going to live his entire life at the shelter…
20. Ivan is a Charming Tuxedo Cat
The MSPCA-Angell adoption center manager, Alyssa Krieger said that ‘What Ivan lacks in mobility he more than makes up for in personality’. They were looking for an adoptive home that would give him a second chance at a better life. But the sick kitty had a lot to endure before receiving a happy ending…
19. Ivan Had a Lot of Fans
On Instagram, Ivan The Twisted charmed a lot of people, but nobody actually came to take him home. And it was such a pity since Ivan was the definition of cuddling. But then something unexpected happened…
18. A Miracle Happened
The shelter didn’t lose hope, so they made an announcement and put him for adoption on Facebook, saying that nobody wanted to adopt him. And guess how many requests started to show up for Ivan?
17. Over 2,000 Requests
Families all over the world requested Ivan as their future furry member. And we’re talking about people from Thailand, China, Australia, Canada, the U.K. and other 40 states in America. Where would Ivan go?
16. A Difficult Choice
The shelter had a big problem in choosing the best home from so many requests. Once troubled that he wouldn’t find a place fit for Ivan, the people at the shelter were now overwhelmed. But they have finally made a choice!

3. Up to No Good
Nobody’s ever heard of cats always behaving. And it’s no doubt that Ivan is sometimes up to no good. He might look like he’s chilling, but he’s actually chewing his brother’s ears! That’s what he gets for interrupting his naps.
2. Living the Life
Ivan has a lot of fans on Instagram and his owners keep them posted with pictures and cute videos of their newest addition to their furry family. Look how cute he is as Santa Claus!
1. Best Pillow Ever
As any other cat, Ivan loves to sleep in his parents’ bed, especially on the pillow. And the human owners will have no other choice than tuck in the ball of fur and kiss him goodnight!
