Meet Able

“It is a very inconvenient habit of kittens (Alice had once made the remark) that whatever you say to them, they always purr.”

― Lewis Carroll, Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There

Last Saturday, we had the pleasure of adding a new member to our little family unit…a little ginger kitten. He’s a rather special kitten because he only has one eye. He was found abandoned in a cardboard box with his brother (who sadly did not survive) and he had a severely ulcerated eye which had to be removed. My youngest, Callum, chose him and named him.

Here are a few pictures of him during his first week with us.

Watching and being watched…
