I met Ted from Kitten Inn at the recent Wellington area Pet Expo and I knew you would love to meet him too. As America begins the countdown to Thanksgiving and then BlackFriday we celebrate with a lovely graphic created by Cathrine and the Bionic Basil B Team. Thank you Cathrine.
Welcome to Pet Parade 274 and thank you for being part of last week’s post. The Crew and I managed to reach everyone now I am working from home! I have even been able to conjure up a couple of gift guides for later this week.
The Pet Expo was a goldmine of inspiration and information. I discovered several new 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 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
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.
Just look at gorgeous Ted.
