Awww Monday: Oddity doesn't make me less a kitten!

Awww Monday is hosted by Sandee, of Comedy Plus.

Join us every Monday for Awww...Mondays.  Post a picture that makes you say Awww... and that it.

Make sure you get the code from Sandee's site, linked above, and leave a link to your post so we can visit you.  What better way to start the week than with a smile!

Hello, I'm Evan, and I look like I'm squinting, but I'm not.  I have no tail at all and I have microophthalmia, which means when my eye formed, it was abnormally small.  Here at the shelter, I don't look as "cute" as the other kittens, but I make up for it with purrs!

I may look a bit odd, but I have a big heart!

  10. A precious pet, so cute, you deserve a wonderful forever home. I hope you find it very soon. Thank you for sharing with us today. xo

  11. It wouldn't make a bit of difference to me if I were on the lookout for a new furbaby. In fact, it might sway me towards him.
