No one wanted this "ugly" cat until a rescuer came along
This cat was found in the streets of Istanbul back in 2008. She was completely covered in maggots that were eating her slowly. She was named Gulumser, meaning "she who always smiles", because the maggots had eaten most of her face and upper lip. Her rescue became viral in news outlets and websites all over the world. Gulumser was successfully treated for her condition and adopted in the Netherlands.
