One Eyed, Blind, Ginger Cat
Healthy cat and responds to Millie
As you will understand she will be very disorientated and confused as she cannot see. She is a very friendly & loving cat after we rescued her and took her in 1.5yrs ago when we saw her at the vets after she had been hit by a car (hence why she is blind).
