"Hello everybody. My name is Elmo, and I am such a sweet, affectionate young gentleman! The vet says I was born with a genetic defect common to my Manx breed. However, I am not in pain and I don't even think about it. You will see that I am able to get around just fine. Please do not feel sorry for me. What I would really like is for you to fall in love with me and adopt me. I promise I will love you forever and always. Could you find a special place in your heart for a special cat like me?"
