That little guy is Melon and he has no eyes. You can see more pictures of him here.
I saw he was up for adoption like 6 weeks ago and figured he’d be snatched up quickly. Sadly, he hasn’t.
I wasn’t considering getting another cat, but after seeing that he was still there, I started to feel bad, so I sent in a PAWS application this week and have an appointment to see him Saturday afternoon.
The foster lady even said “Bring a carrier in case you want to take him home on the spot!”. There’s a decent chance I come home with a blind cat on Saturday.
My main question is this – what should I name him?
Playing off the blind thing is a gimme (hence Melon, but I don’t like the name Melon). It’d be a stretch to try to go with blind AND Sixers, but we’ll see.
He’s just like any other cat!
