Lenny was adopted to someone who rejected him for supposedly having a problem with smelly gas. After an online appeal, he found a home with an adopter who will appreciate him as a friendly boy who wants to be loved.

Scottsville Veterinary Hospital and Pet Adoptions in Scottsville, NY posted poor Lenny and his problem at Facebook on March 31, saying:

“Hello! I was returned today because I fart too much. I am hoping I can find a person who can love me even with my stinky farts. I am a 19 month old neutered male and would love to be your smelly cuddle cat. I am very friendly and love to be petted and held. I even am wearing a tuxedo so I’ll look snazzy if you come to see me. -Lenny the Domestic Short Hair”

Lenny was rescued from a Rochester, NY park in February as a stray. He was nursed back to health and adopted, then was returned two days later because “he farts all the time,” according to the reason given for bringing him back on his intake paperwork. The person even suggested Lenny was better suited for a life outside because of his smelly gas.

“But since he’s been back here, there haven’t been any problems,” Scottsville’s adoptions director Jennifer Giehl told the Democrat and Chronicle, “but we did still nickname him ‘Smelly Cat.’ ”

After gaining some celebrity following his Facebook post on the 31st of March, Lenny was adopted again on Monday.

Scottsville Veterinary Hospital and Pet Adoptions maintains a no-kill shelter and last year rehomed 1,400 animals. They provide shelter and the chance at a new home for local strays, owner surrenders, and Southern rescues – dogs and cats facing euthanasia at shelters in several Southern US states.
