The ginger tom was born with a mild eye deformity, leaving him with a slightly Crookshanks-esque squashed face.

He was abandoned on the street in Spain.

All his siblings were adopted, but people were cruel about Romeo's appearance, calling him "too ugly" to love.

This fortune's fool has nevertheless found a happier ending than his namesake.

Parting was not such sweet sorrow for the abandoned cat, as he was adopted by Laura Llacer at the Santuario Compasion Animal rescue centre, with generosity as boundless as the sea.
