A one-year-old cat came to a rescue group in Salem, Massachusetts, in need of a loving home. His name is Memphis, and he is quite special.

Memphis was born with two adorable noses and facial congenital abnormalities.

Tara Kay, founder of the Odd Cat Sanctuary, received a message from one of their volunteers about a cat needing rescue.

"The kitty was being given up, and area shelters in Massachusetts threatened to euthanize him," Tara told Love Meow.

As soon as Tara heard about his plight, she offered to take him. Memphis' previous owners who could no longer care for him, were relieved to know that the Odd Cat would give Memphis a chance at a forever home.

"He was born with deformed soft palate, smushed face and a cleft lip. Both noses are functional. He does breathe louder and snores! But he does great," Tara told Love Meow.

Besides his cute noses, he wears a couple of adorable freckles and a goatee.

"Our volunteers are always on the look out and step up when a cat is in need of a safe place for being different," Tara added.

Memphis' facial abnormalities don't bother him at all.

He makes cute little chirpy noises and has a wonderful character and lots of charm.

"Memphis is super affectionate, loves to be loved and purr," Tara told Love Meow.

He was born with a cleft lip and makes the cutest "blep."
