Someone get this cat a tissue!

An overly sneezy cat is having a hard time finding a forever home because of his unique condition.

Nine-year-old Elliot has suffered from chronic rhinitis – a condition that causes constant sneezing, a runny nose or itchy nose, and congestion, the staff at the Cats Protection national adoption centre in the united kingdom said.

Although the staff said Elliot is a cheerful, affectionate little guy” and the perfect lap cat, they believe that his sneezing fits keep people from taking him.

“Elliott is definitely very snuffly and his condition means he has some damage to the bones in his nose,” Tania Marsh, the centre of the deputy director, told The Argus.

“We think that his condition has been delayed with a number of people from the definition of him, that is a pity, because it would be a nice pet,” Marsh continued.

The cat, which is described as “snuffly,” is at the adoption center for a while, although the exact amount of time that was not reported.

Marsh is hopeful the friendly kitty will be adopted quickly.

“Cats with the disease can seem like a daunting prospect at first, but in many cases they can be managed and with the proper care,” she told The Argus.
