Though she was urged not to take home a tiny kitten who had only 1 eye, a woman from Ohio followed her heart.
Andrea (no last name given) tells the Animal Rescue Site that 4 years ago she had moved into an apartment with her young daughter and was going through a rough time. She decided that a pet was in order. After seeing an ad that read, “15 kittens, please help!” she drove to the location, taking with her a brand-new cat carrier.
Seeing the 15 kittens together made choosing just 1 very difficult, Andrea says. However, her heart melted when she spotted the tiniest kitten in the bunch, an orange tabby who happened to have only 1 eye.
When Andrea showed an interest in that kitten, she was told, “Oh, you don’t want that sickly one. She is the runt of the litter. Nobody wants a 1-eyed cat. We’re just going to put her to sleep.”
In that instant, Andrea’s mind was set — this precious kitty had just found herself a good home.
Dixie immediately adjusted to her new home. When Andrea’s daughter insisted on dressing her in baby-doll clothes, the loving kitten went right along with it.
According to Andrea, Dixie has been a patient and loving family member. It’s hard to say who saved who that day 4 years ago — Andrea’s just glad they found each other.
