After healing from her wounds, Joy will be available for adoption.
With enormous ears, big, round eyes, and little button nose, Joy is the Baby Yoda we all dream of cuddling every night.
The rescue cat was found by a humane society volunteer on December 15 suffering with a large wound on the neck, which vets believe was caused by an animal attack, abuse by an owner, or an accident.
Joy is thought to be 1 to 2 years old. Vets at the Cabarrus Animal Hospital treated a number of illnesses, including a respiratory infection and intestinal parasites.
The adoption will be handled by the Humane Society of Rowan County in North Carolina while Joy is being fostered by an animal hospital employee.
