Pete may be down one eye, but his view on life is still to have fun and give lots of love!

Pete, who is more affectionately known as One Eyed Pete, is a 7 month old white and tabby short-haired kitten who had a rough start in life. He came from a home with a lot of other cats, so he did not get the proper care and attention he so richly deserves. He had a wound to his right eye that received medical attention a little too late and resulted in the loss of his eye. He is now fully healed, and overjoyed with his new lease on life!

Pete loves to play, cuddle, and explore. I think this video will speak for itself....

Pete is awesome and captured the hearts of many people in our building today, including myself.
