I was involved with Busters rescue from the streets when he was a tiny kitten. This kitty family was living in a Smart & Final Parking lot, someone must had dumped the pregnant friendly mama cat. My friend and I trapped the mama cat and her 5 kittens, Buster was one of them.
He was so skinny that he didn't weigh enough to set off the traps so even though he went into the traps several times, ate the food then ran out, we couldn't catch him. We caught all the others so had to leave him behind. The next night I went back with a trap that is very sensitive and this time he did set it off and we caught him. He was born with partially developed eyes. The left eye was very tiny and he could not see out of it so the vet removed it. The other eye is smaller than usual but he has some sight. The fosters thinks mostly he sees blurry things and light. He is such a love and just a little over a year old now, we really want him to have his own permanent home.
Buster is funny and cute, he climbs the cat trees and uses the litterbox. Sometimes he bumps into furniture if it's moved or into a wall. His foster mom says he uses his nose to gently touch it to the wall to guide himself to a door opening. He plays, likes balls and other toys. Sometimes he gets running so fast he bumps into a wall but never hurts himself.
His foster parents say he tips his head at a very cute angle to see better, they love him but know he would be much happier in a home with just a few cats, rather than one of many. Being a black cat it's very hard to get good photos of him. He's neutered, current on vaccines, tested negative for FeLV/FIV, microchipped and just waiting for his forever home.
