Why yes, that kitten in the picture is indeed a bit cross eyed. There's nothing wrong with her - it's just a genetic condition and has no impact on Carla's ability to see and play. And as evidenced by her ability to catch and pounce upon toys, she's definitely got her paw eye coordination down. Being cross eyed just means that she looks silly at all times, even when trying to be dignified (which isn't often. Carla is a kitten after all). Carla is a bit shy around new people, and if there's lots of hustle and bustle she will hide herself away until she's figured out what's going on - at which point she will creep out to investigate. She makes up for her shyness by being a total sweetheart once she gets to know you. This little tabby fuzz will be shy initially, and would do best in a small, contained, quiet environment while building a bond with a new family.
