With a staggering 256,000 devoted followers on Instagram, the shelter cat from San Francisco has certainly made a name for itself.
Social media has been witnessing an increasing craze for cross-eyed pets, which is being widely embraced by animal lovers. One such adorable pet is Belarus, a rescued cat from San Francisco, who has become an online sensation with his unique appearance. Although Belarus is suffering from strabismus, a condition that makes it difficult for him to align his eyes simultaneously, people can’t help but love him. Rachel Krall adopted Belarus in 2018 after coming across a post about him on SFACC’s social media. With the loving support of his owner, Belarus now has over 256,000 followers on Instagram. If you’re searching for an endearing and unusual addition to your feed, Belarus is definitely a must-follow.
Meet Belarus, the lovable cat with a distinctive cross-eyed look. Aside from sharing his adorable photos on Instagram, Belarus and his owner Krall have taken it upon themselves to support various animal shelters in San Francisco. They do this by selling merchandise, with all proceeds going towards animal shelters, including Belarus’ former home – SFACC. To date, they have raised $6,000, of which $4,000 went to SFACC, $1,000 to Sonoma Community Animal Response Team, and $1,000 to Cat Town of Oakland. Although Krall initially committed to donating 50% of the profits, she felt strongly about the cause and ended up contributing all earnings to the shelter.
Brodie, a dog with an unconventional facial structure, has finally been adopted after being returned to the shelter by his previous owners. Despite his crossed eyes, Brodie does not suffer from any major vision problems or discomfort, according to the New York Post. Belarus is a typical feline who loves playing games, eating, and getting into mischief. To stay updated on his escapades, follow him on Instagram at @My_Boy_Belarus.
