Sir Stuffington was found in Troutdale, Ore., in early September. He had severe facial injuries and several diseases, according to KPTV. Luckily, a woman named Blazer Schaffer took the kitten in as a foster pet for the Multnomah County Animal Shelter.

Shaffer told KPTV that one day, her girlfriend dressed Sir Stuffington up as a pirate and posted the picture to Facebook. When it went viral, they decided to make prints of the picture and sell them to raise money for the animal shelter.

Sir Stuffington now has a Facebook page with 32,000 fans to help his fundraising efforts.

"I want to bring awareness to the world about the importance of your local animal shelter and the lives they save every day!" the page says. "I also want you to know that you can make a difference!"

"I think people just see him and see that he's been through so much in his short little life," Shaffer told KPTV. "And he's still positive and happy and wants to live."
