Gadget and his siblings Stewart and Gidget were rescued from a high-kill shelter outside San Diego when it was decided that their time was up. All of the kittens were born with ingrown eyelashes that were causing corneal abrasions and required surgery; when Rescue House was the only group who agreed to help them, a volunteer who had championed their cause drove them down from Central California and they got the surgeries they needed. In addition to the eyelashes, Gadget had an ulcer on his right eye that has healed though has some residual scar tissue—he has vision in both eyes, though!

Gadget is a very social kitty who doesn’t realize that he might have any limitations. He is a playful and active boy who romps with the best of them and then comes over to you for all the pettings he craves... you will oblige, right?

Gadget is great with other cats—he enjoys a good chase-and-wrestle. While he has not had direct exposure, he has shown curiosity toward dogs at the vet office where he boarded for a time. Gadget would likely be fine with respectful children.

Thanks to the caring of one persistent volunteer (and a network that went to Boston and back), Gadget was saved from last-minute euthanasia. He is a happy and healthy boy who will give back a lifetime of love and enjoyment. Will you take Gadget home and reap the purry reward?
