TROUTDALE, OR (KPTV) -

There's Grumpy Cat. There's Lil Bub. And Tuna the Dog. Plus Colonel Meow, Princess Monster Truck and Menswear Dog.

And then there's Oregon's own internet celebrity: Sir Stuffington.

Google released its list of the most famous animals on the Internet for 2013, and one-eyed pirate kitten Sir Stuffington is No. 7.

The one-eyed kitten was found with traumatic facial injuries and several diseases near a Troutdale home in September.

Blazer Schaffer, who lives in the Portland area, took Sir Stuffington in as a foster kitten for the Multnomah County Animal Shelter.

One day, Schaffer said her girlfriend dressed up the kitten in a hat and an eye patch to make him look like a pirate. A photo posted online of the buccaneer kitten then went viral.

"I think people just see him and see that he's been through so much in his short little life and he's still positive and happy and wants to live," Schaffer told FOX 12 in September.

"And he's insanely cute to look at. He looks like a little pirate," she said. "That permanent snarl from the fractured jaw."
