Chairman Waffles is a domestic shorthair with black and white coloring and big green eyes. He might sound like a ton of other cats with that description, but this special kitty has undergone three different surgeries (including a partial reconstruction surgery) since December, and he really needs a home.

Waffles arrived at the Michigan Humane Society’s Detroit Center for Animal Care as a stray who had severe damage to his face, nose and tongue, which were covered in chemical burns. They think he may have gotten into something he shouldn’t have while looking for something to drink as a stray.

Though Waffles has been through so much and no longer looks like most other cats, this experience has not damaged his spirit whatsoever. He loves to give kisses and cuddle. He’s a very friendly cat, as you can see by this video, and could really use a home where he can get all the love and attention he deserves.

While under the care of the Michigan Humane Society, Waffles has made another special friend with a fellow foster kitty named Mr. Burns. Mr. Burns has had a lifelong condition which causes him to sneeze a lot. Because of this condition, Mr. Burns also has mild nose and eye discharge. Waffles and Mr. Burns have become so close, that they would do especially well finding a loving home together. If anyone out there is interested in giving their heart and home to these special felines, you can e-mail Dr. Amy at for more information.

Even if you may not be the one to be able to adopt them, you can still help by simply spreading the word. Never underestimate what you can do for an animal just by sharing their information with others. You never know who your message might reach in the long run and what amazing changes that person could make for an animal in need.

If you want to share Waffles’ story on Facebook to help get the word out there, the Michigan Humane Society posted this picture with his and Mr. Burns’ story that you can easily hit ‘share’ on to help pass it along. It takes only a second, but might make a huge difference.
