Baby Yoda is the gift that just keeps on giving. Memed from here to Timbuktu, everyone is going nuts for the little green guy—but now, a cute, furry contender has stepped up to the plate.
A rescue kitty in North Carolina has been fittingly dubbed Baby Yoda. If you take one look at her, you'll understand why.
Baby Yoda the cat was found as a stray in Kannapolis, North Carolina on December 15. According to Nancy Rominger, a volunteer with the Humane Society of Rowan County, the poor girl was stricken with a number of illnesses.
"She had sores on her neck, bad sores all around her neck, an upper respiratory infection, fleas, you name it," she said. "She had a little bit of everything."
Baby Yoda was named for her distinctly Yoda-esque ears, which make her look just like the character. Adoption applications have been pouring in, but Baby Yoda is going to rest up at her foster mom's house until she's healthy enough to find her forever home.
