It was bound to happen: A cat that looks like Baby Yoda!

The big-eared “Star Wars” character that made its debut in the Disney Plus series, “The Mandalorian,” has spawned many Baby Yoda memes online.

Then along comes Baby Yoda Cat.

With her giant green eyes and large ears that tend to point out instead of up, Baby Yoda Cat bears an uncanny resemblance to Disney’s Baby Yoda.

The cat is now famous for her adorable good looks.

A volunteer found Baby Yoda Cat as a stray and took her to Cabarrus Animal Hospital in Kannapolis, N.C., on Dec. 15. Here is her story, according to the popular website Cole and Marmalade:

“The sweet feline needed to be treated for a deep wound around her neck as well as an upper respiratory infection. It looked like she had been living on her own for awhile. She had hair loss due to past injuries, fleas, and intestinal parasites.

“While the entirety of the Internet is calling this little survivor Baby Yoda Cat, her official name is Joy. She’s staying with the dedicated animal rescuers of HSRC until she’s 100 percent healthy. They say she has a long road of recovery ahead of her, but they’re optimistic her life is about to get a whole lot better.

“As predicted, HSRC has already received several inquiries from people wanting to adopt this already-famous Baby Yoda Cat.The shelter says that while Joy is looking for her perfect home, she’s not ready to leave the shelter. Her fosters will keep her safe until she is fully healed, and then they will process local adoption applications.”

Of course, she already has a Facebook page. Click here:
