How could anyone resist a cat with one raggedy ear sticking up and the other one floppy? Emma certainly couldn't resist, especially when the cat reached out to her at the shelter- literally. It turns out that Cheesy had led a pretty rough life. He is missing a lot of teeth and had been shot with a BB gun, with pellets still remaining in his lungs. But now he's living the high life, with a family who goes out of their way for his health and comfort. Cheesy knows a good thing when he sees it, and he makes sure Emma knows how much he loves her for taking him in. It's amazing how grizzled old street cats can adjust to being pampered pets when given the chance.
