This Woman’s Looks Just Like Steve Buscemi, and the Internet Can’t Get Enough

Whenever you see an animal that looks like a person, it’s definitely a little jarring. It can also be among the superficial reasons that people turn down a perfectly lovable pet. My dog, for instance, has the cutest little underbite, which I was told was a reason that a few other prospective families turned her down. I’d say it worked out though, because I now have the world’s sweetest little puppy and those other people lost out!

Perhaps her looks are the reason this cat spent 2 whole years in a shelter (she was there from the time she was 2 days old!) before someone finally loved her for who she was on the inside…and the outside.

Because y’all, she looks exactly like Steve Buscemi.

When Jen Chavez went looking for another member to add to their family – they already had 3 rescue cats and 3 little boys – she had no idea what she would find.

But when she saw Marla, Jen was immediately intrigued with the funny-looking, but sweet, feline.

When she inquired, Jen found the shelter staff very protective of the little girl. She’d been dumped there at 2 days old and had waited 2 long years for someone to take her home.

That someone was Jen, who knew that her “little strange face” would fit right in with their family.

The shelter employees did let Jen know there was a meme floating around the internet that compared her to Steve Buscemi, and that was when it clicked – that was exactly who Marla looked like!

Marla is 5 now, an internet sensation, and happy at home with the other cats and her humans in the home.

Jen describes her as sweet, playful, a good eater, and a fan of her husband’s singing.

As long as she doesn’t start taking on traits from Buscemi’s character from Boardwalk Empire, they should be fine.
