An abandoned cat has been raised for adoption after an unusual infection has been & # 39; swollen & # 39; lips looked like expired lip fillers.
Samuel, believed to be between eight and ten years old, was rescued in Clifton, New Jersey at the end of August after being found alone in the streets.
After several vet visits, Samuel was diagnosed with & # 39; rodent ulcers & # 39; – or eosinophilic granuloom – causing his upper lip to swell & # 39; swollen & # 39; looked like.
This is an inflammatory reaction to fleas, food or the environment that causes a series of itchy sores on the lip.

The infection is usually cleared up with a steroid injection, but Samuel has been given a medication that, due to his heart murmur, takes a little longer to heal & # 39 ;.
Despite his large upper lip, however, Samuel is in good health and is currently in Clifton Animal Shelter awaiting his eternal home.
Liz Taranda, VP of Friends of the Shelter, said: & # 39; Samuel is a sweet, sweet, older cat.
& # 39; Usually a steroid injection is used to clean it up, but due to the fact that this poor man has a heart murmur, another drug is used that takes a lot longer to heal.
& # 39; Because we don't know how long he has been taking care of himself or having this condition, it's hard to know if he will fully recover or forever & # 39; will have swollen & # 39; lips. & # 39;

Liz added that Samuel & # 39; calm, quiet, and docile & # 39; has been detained by the animal shelter staff, pet and loved & # 39; is being held.
& # 39; He is calm, quiet, and docile, and as soon as he sees someone, he only gives you this cute look so that you can open his cage and give him attention & she said.
& # 39; He just wants to be held, stroked and loved – he is a spinning machine! We now have it in our shelter where it is ready for adoption.
& # 39; Everyone wants to adopt a nice kitten or a perfect little cat, but we think he deserves a home and opportunity with someone who is willing to open his heart and home for him. & # 39;
