A cat started hanging around a house, rolling on the ground, asking for attention until he found kind people to love and spoil him.

A friendly cat showed up on the porch of a house and decided to stick around. He walked up to the lady who lived there and flopped down in front of her, begging for attention.

The finder noticed his interesting-shaped ears and was charmed by his sweet, affectionate disposition. Knowing a cat like him shouldn't be on the streets, she wanted to help him. No one came to claim the tabby, so the finder contacted her local rescue, Little Wanderers NYC.

"We couldn't leave him outside for a minute longer," Little Wanderers NYC shared with Love Meow.

The cat named U-turn was about 4-5 years old and came with round-shaped teddy bear ears. "He made it to the veterinarian for a wellness examination. It turns out he was born that way." He might be related to the "American Curl" as he "has all the breed characteristics."

On Easter, Gilly came across a post from the rescue seeking a foster volunteer for U-turn, and she jumped at the chance.

"We recently lost our tabby boy. In his honor and memory, we decided to open our home and hearts and serve as a foster family," Gilly told Love Meow.

She set up a comfortable room with food, treats, and all the amenities and went to pick up U-turn.

U-turn stepped out of the carrier with his tail held high and made a beeline for attention and pets.

"I thought we would be getting a tough guy from the Bronx. He is the snuggliest snuggle bug of all snuggle bugs. He is truly a magical feline."

After exploring his new space and getting plenty of snuggles, he conked out on a comfy blanket under Gilly's bed and had a night of uninterrupted slumber.

"He went to sleep...until noon the next day. He was exhausted. He knew he was safe and just let himself dream away."

In no time, Gilly discovered U-turn's favorite thing in the world - belly rubs. He sprawled out on his back with his belly on display, ready to be spoiled.

The second he was petted, his purr motor switched on, and his paws kneaded away, making biscuits in the air.

"We have a little nighttime routine where I sit on the rug on the floor, and he will come and lie beside me, and I will pet him until he falls asleep. He is like a puppy in a cat."

U-turn is starting to play with toys but would cuddle with his people all day and night if he could.

He lays his head on their hand, using it as a pillow for comfort. "He is very well-mannered and smart. Very easy going and easy to communicate with."

The former street cat is FeLV+, but nothing can stop him from loving life and having fun. He craves human companionship, nuzzles into his people for pets, and melts into a puddle whenever he gets belly rubs.

He's very intrigued by his new wand toy and enjoys playing with his humans.

U-turn has pure bliss written all over his face now that he's indoors. He has a wonderful foster family to cater to his every whim and ensure he's loved and spoiled endlessly.
