I met Ted from Kitten Inn rescue cats at a recent Wellington Pet Expo and I knew you will love to meet him too.
The Pet Expo was a goldmine of inspiration and information and I recommend a visit yo your local pet expo when it visits town.
I discovered several recently developed New Zealand cat foods which I will review future posts. They focus on the kind of things we as pet lovers look for in a good food – natural nourishment and taste. There was also plenty of time to visit pet charities at the expo, including Kitten Inn.
Kitten Inn Rescue Cats
When I met Ted I knew he was the perfect cat subject for a photograph. he was also the Expo representative of the Kitten Inn rescue. There was another reason I was drawn to him. Many readers may remember that the late Dash Kitten, our Founder Cat, was partially sighted. I discovered that Ted also has micropthalmia too.
Microphthalmia is a rare condition
An eye may be unusually small. The lack of sight means a cat will use sensory information from other parts of the brain to make up for the lack of sight. It is possible that they will have more brain development in the auditory processing areas, and they do have heightened auditory spatial abilities. – SafeHaven
Take a look at gorgeous longhaired Ted!
I remember that Dash Kitten was confident navigating his way around our home and garden, and I would say to anyone considering adopting a micropthalmic or anopthalmic cat. Do Not Hesitate. Your life will change and it will be for the better. These cats are adventurous, fearless, and loving.
Do you have a favourite picture you have taken of your cat, or one that surprised you by coming out much better than you expected?
