Shelter by Funkelstein Shelter by Funkelstein
I took this today on the 50th anniversary of our local animal shelter. This kitten was in a cage with the mother and its 4 siblings. When I visited them before, I was told about them having an eye desease, I suppose cat flu. It is also visible here, look at the downward eye, it is opaque.

This is also the reason why none of the visitors were allowed to touch them - which was hard to accept, for them being super cute :)

Do not support breeders. Animals in shelters need your love and attention so much more!

Ehhh. Even now, after I'm familiar with lots of these issues, as I've experienced them aplenty, it is still totally depressing to look at such poor fellas. :(

Still, gotta be optimistic, as for example out of the last two small kittens I happened to pick up with already "bad eyes", one was simply too ill and the only option was to put him to sleep. Sad of course, but oh well. But another one, even with slightly damaged eye, now lives here with me, and is a proper hooligan. :D

So that's all just life, and the ways of Mother nature.

i think they all went out fine and found new homes. actually, despite sneezing, they were just too adorably! drinking from their mom like there was nothing bad in the world, not caring for the people passing at all, but only drinking and sleeping :)

Super cute kitten. So sad that it has an eye infection.
