A while back, I told you the tale of the one-eyed kitties at my local PetSmart.

I went in on Monday to stock up on dry kitty food. Naturally, I went to say hello to all the kitties up for adoption. First of all, I must have smelled of roast chicken and catnip, because fully three quarters of the cats and kittens were all kinds of pouncy and adorable when I approached. After 'playing' with a black and white kitten through the plexiglass (I moved my hand, kitten pounced and then looked up at me as if seeking approval. rinse. repeat), I looked at the next window and lo! an enormous but sleek male tabby was rolling about on his back and then rubbing his cheek against the glass as if I could somehow skritch him (I tried; believe me: I tried).

Then I noticed that the tortoiseshell kitten with the damaged eye was still there, though her eye was considerably less weepy. Then, I noticed another kitten - a calico - had a severely damaged left eye as well. No sooner did I notice that when I turned my attention back to the handsome tabby and lo! HE was fully missing his left eye; the fur had grown over the socket. (by the bye? the cat o' the day that I desperately wanted to take home was that fellow. l'm certain someone will adopt him; he's gorgeous and sweet and friendly. Still, if I could accomodate just one more kitty...)

Anyway, I finally asked someone what was up with the spate of one-eyed felines. She was as perplexed as I, but agreed it was strange.

Seriously, folks. I think this is an excellent opportunity for one of you to build a legion of eye-patched pirate kitties. You know you want to.

Alas, we're not even allowed to have fish in the dorms, or else I'd totally have a kitty. (A boy cat named Greebo, most likely. :D)
