Everyone in the apartment complex I lived in knew who Ugly was. Ugly was the resident tomcat.
Ugly loved three things in this world: fighting, eating garbage, and shall we say, love. The combination of these things combined with a life spent outside had their effect on Ugly.
To start with, he had only one eye, and where the other should have been was a gaping hole. He was also missing his ear on the same side, his left foot has appeared to have been badly broken at one time, and had healed at an unnatural angle, making him look like he was always turning the corner. His tail has long since been lost, leaving only the smallest stub, which he would constantly jerk and twitch. Ugly would have been a dark gray tabby striped-type, except for the sores covering his head, neck, even his shoulders with thick, yellowing scabs.
Every time someone saw Ugly there was the same reaction. “That’s one UGLY cat!!”
All the children were warned not to touch him, the adults threw rocks at him, hosed him down, squirted him when he tried to come in their homes, or shut his paws in the door when he would not leave.
Ugly always had the same reaction. If you turned the hose on him, he would stand there, getting soaked until you gave up and quit. If you threw things at him, he would curl his lanky body around feet in forgiveness. Whenever he spied children, he would come running meowing frantically and bump his head against their hands, begging for their love. If you ever picked him up he would immediately begin suckling on your shirt, earrings, whatever he could find.
One day Ugly shared his love with the neighbors huskies. They did not respond kindly, and Ugly was badly mauled. From my apartment I could hear his screams, and I tried to rush to his aid. By the time I got to where he was laying, it was apparent Ugly’s sad life was almost at an end.
Ugly lay in a wet circle, his back legs and lower back twisted grossly out of shape, a gaping tear in the white strip of fur that ran down his front. As I picked him up and tried to carry him home I could hear him wheezing and gasping, and could feel him struggling. I must be hurting him terribly I thought.
Then I felt a familiar tugging, sucking sensation on my ear - Ugly, in so much pain, suffering and obviously dying was trying to suckle my ear. I pulled him closer to me, and he bumped the palm of my hand with his head, then he turned his one golden eye towards me, and I could hear the distinct sound of purring. Even in the greatest pain, that ugly battled-scarred cat was asking only for a little affection, perhaps some compassion.
At that moment I thought Ugly was the most beautiful, loving creature I had ever seen. Never once did he try to bite or scratch me, or even try to get away from me, or struggle in any way. Ugly just looked up at me completely trusting in me to relieve his pain.
Ugly died in my arms before I could get inside, but I sat and held him for a long time afterwards, thinking about how one scarred, deformed little stray could so alter my opinion about what it means to have true pureness of spirit, to love so totally and truly. Ugly taught me more about giving and compassion than a thousand books, lectures, or talk show specials ever could, and for that I will always be thankful. He had been scarred on the outside, but I was scarred on the inside, and it was time for me to move on and learn to love truly and deeply. To give my total to those I cared for.
Many people want to be richer, more successful, well liked, beautiful, but for me, I will always try to be Ugly.

That cat is NOT ugly…despite it’s name. It is so adorable. If it ever came near me I would give it the love and care it deserves, not what those terrible people did to it. :’( brb crying until I die.

fuck you i am literally bawling right now..

This… this broke my heart. I’m not even joking. I started crying before I even got half-way through… I’m sitting here crying my eyes out oh my god…. everyone needs to read this, whether it makes them cry, or not. This is the saddest thing ever but it really struck home

I have a grey tabby named Willow. When she was just about 2-3 months old we found here, cold and wet in the bushes. Our neighbors had moved and left her behind. She scratched my dad all the way into the house, and one of my first memories (I was three) was jumping up and down saying can we keep her?! As the years went on, she began to get fleas/infections/ illnesses, and because much like how Ugly is described in this story, except she has two ears two eyes, yada yada. Since she was removed from her mother at an early age (we think she had been separated long before she was supposed to stop weaning) she would always suckle on our shirts. My dad has been saying for ages that we should put her to rest, end her misery. He keeps her outside now and barely let’s her her but for her food. Everyday I go outside and I cuddle with her, and she still suckles on my shirt. Through the 12 years she’s lived with us, I’m only of the only ones in my family who still shows her some compassion. Ugly kinda reminded me of Willow. I think I’ll let her in secretly tonight…
