Two Cats Spared From Certain Death; One Of Them Can’t Stop Smiling!
Meet Pofak and Tennessee. Both were saved from certain death by the Iranian rescue group called Cats of Ekbatan. Because of this organization–and its generous Instagram and Facebook followers, who funded the kitties’ miraculous recoveries–Tennesee and Pofak are now healthy and happy with their family in New York. Special thanks goes out to Iman Tavassoly, who shared this story with us.
Pofak, which means to “cheesepuff” in Persian, was found on the street and unable to breathe, do to a severely damaged diaphragm.
1. Pofak before surgery
When Cats of Ekbatan followers heard Pofak’s story, they began donating money to fund her surgery. The tenacious cat pulled through, but one problem remained: no one would adopt her.

Then, another miracle happened. A loving couple from New York saw her online, and her new mom traveled all the way to Tehran to take her home!

Today, Pofak is a “people cat,” wanting nothing more than to give love to the people around her, thanks to the good-hearted humans who saved her life!

Next, meet Tennessee.
He was barely alive when he was found by a passer-by in Tehran, lying underneath a car. The gentlemen was kind enough to scoop him up and take him to a vet, where there were some supporters of Cats of Ekbatan.
1. Tennessee when he was found
Tennessee could not eat, as there was a hole in his chin, and any food he tried to consume fell out of his mouth. But the group, along with their supporters and followers, had faith in Tennessee. He had surgery to repair his chin, and he gradually started to heal.

Aside from giving him another chance at life, the surgery had one other adorable side effect: it left Tennessee with a permanent smile! What an amazing recovery.
9. Tennesee in one shot
Remember that family in New York who adopted Pofak? Well they wanted Tennessee, too! So they made the long journey, once more, from Tehran to the United States to take this happy kitty home.
