Some stories about animals are just so heartwarming that they stick in your head (and your heart) for a long time.

The story of a cat named Potato is one of those tales.

Potato was living a rough existence on the streets in China when he was rescued because it was obvious that he was pretty sick. He was suffering from tumors called ceruminous adenoma and vets eventually had to remove his ears to prevent the disease from coming back.

But the story gets happy from there!

Potato found a forever home filled with love in April 2019 and he also has a new best friend that he lives with named Horlick.

Let’s meet this handsome boy (and Horlick) who has 11,000 followers on Instagram. Not bad for a former street cat, huh?

1. Meet Potato!

A very good-looking cat, don’t you think?

今天是薯仔的「入屋生日」❗️薯仔是浪貓,所以沒人知道他何時出生,6歲也是義工猜的。去年的4月25日是薯仔第一次踏進這個家🏡,所以這天就是他的新生日🎂!生日快樂薯寶貝❤️ Today is Potato’s “Homed Birthday”! Potato was a stray cat, so no one knows when he was born or how old is he. 6 years is just a guess. He first stepped into this home on 25 April last year, so it is his Re-born Day👶🏻 Happy birthday, our Sweet Potato🥔 . #薯仔 #無耳貓 #生日 #重生 #流浪貓 #生日快樂 #家 #叮噹貓 #多啦a夢 #哆啦a夢 #支持領養 #唐貓 #米克斯 #猫 #potato #noears #doreamon #straycat #homed #reborn #birthday #love #cat #catsagram #catlovers #adoptdontshop #hkig

Isn’t Potato just adorable?

I’m so glad that he’s in a loving home instead of out on the streets.

Now we want to hear from you.

In the comments, share a photo of your kitty and tell us a little bit about them.

We can’t wait to meet these cats!
