ROWAN COUNTY, N.C. (WCNC) — The internet has fallen in love with a curious cat in North Carolina.

A Facebook page dedicated to the feline says "Baby Yoda Cat" was found by a volunteer of the Humane Society of Rowan County and taken to the Cabarrus Animal Hospital on Dec. 15.

"She is being treated for a deep wound around her neck, as well as an upper respiratory infection," the page said. "She also came in with some hair loss due to precious wounds, fleas, and intestinal parasites."

"Baby Yoda Cat" has a long road to recovery, according to the shelter, and won't be available for adoption for a while.

"The rescue is accepting local applications, but she won’t officially be available for adoption until her wounds are healed, she is spayed, microchipped, and receives her second round of vaccines and dewormer," the page said.

Potential adopters can check back on the "Baby Yoda Cat" Facebook page to follow the cat's journey.

"Baby Yoda Cat plans to be a spokes kitty for all of the homeless animals around the world that are being euthanized in animal shelters due to lack of homes," the page said.

"Baby Yoda" is a popular character in the Star Wars Disney + series, "The Mandalorian".
