ROWAN COUNTY, N.C. — A rescue cat in North Carolina is stealing hearts all over social media due to her resemblance to the 'Mandalorian' character of 'Baby Yoda.

A volunteer with the humane society brought her to Cabarrus Animal Hospital, where she is still receiving care.

She is being treated for a deep wound around her neck, as well as an upper respiratory infection. Baby Yoda Cat also came in with some hair loss due to precious wounds, fleas and intestinal parasites

Fortunately ,the sweet cat did not spend Christmas alone! A Cabarrus Animal Hospital employee decided to foster her for the holidays.

Baby Yoda Cat's features are so unique that she quickly went viral and has been featured on various websites including Love Meow and Good Morning America!

The popularity of Baby Yoda Cat prompted the humane society to make a statement on Facebook which said, "Baby Yoda Cat plans to be a spokes kitty for all of the homeless animals around the world that are being euthanized in animal shelters due to lack of homes."

The rescue is currently accepting local adoption forms, but Baby Yoda Cat will not officially be available for adoption until her wounds are healed, she is spayed, microchipped, and receives her second round of vaccines and dewormer.
