A cat with no face is nonetheless loved very much.
Let's be blunt, Chase the cat is a surprising creature. When she was only a few weeks old, she lost her face in a car accident
. While this link isn't exactly NSFW by any use of the term, she is a disfigured cat - no face, no eyelids - and at first she's a little hard to look at. However, she is in no pain
and she is obviously well loved and well taken care of.
Chase is currently "employed" as a therapy cat, so that people can "feel just as great about themselves and realize that not everyone looks perfect and that is OK."

- various things.
