The One Eye Wonder Ginger Cat

cute one eye ginger tabby cat

Ingot being cute

Ingot (or Yuan Bao) was a rescue cat found by a local shelter in Hong Kong. He was brought in with a problem eye and they had to have it removed in order to save the little one. However, the change never stopped him from being the most positive and loving kitty his new mom has ever seen.

Ingot stayed in the shelter for quite a while, but was unable to find a home until Tracy who adopted 9 cats prior to Ingot met the ginger one eye wonder. Ingot immediately stole her heart with his affection and infectious purrsonality. Soon after that Ingot joined her big furry family and was greeted by many other rescue cats.

Ingot is such a sweet heart that you can’t help but to love him, not to pity him. He has such a character that you know he is going to be all right.

    Our 1 year old, barn cat, just lost his eye in a fight with who knows what kind of varmint. Do you think, after recovery, he'll be able to make it as an outside kitty again?

  35. sharon says:

    we have a one eyed black cat.and there is another and he lost his left eye and can make out shadows and thats about it. but they both are loved just like are normal cats they had a eye infection, it was contracted from the mother. but she has had another litter and none of them has had it i wonder if maybe the tom that might have had the eye promble. but you have just as much fun with the blind one as with a cat with both eyes. some people ask us don't that kind of bother you. and i tell them no and they do not feel the same way. i think it is just great that you feel the same way. god bless you for that. sharon

    He is Beautyful, and he has an Attitude! Strong little Boy….He remembers me to my beloved "Tabasco" I love Ginger Cats…

  49. Lynn says:

    I know a ginger cat who has one eye, his name is Winky, and he is really awesome as are all cats, doesn't affect his want for food, he is a big fellow!! I also knew a blind cat, and she got around the house very well, the family had a habit of putting all furniture back to the normal spot so the cat got around great. You would never have known she couldn't see.

    I have a soft spot for cats that end up homeless, I have adopted 4 in my life and I have had 10 cats in all. The most I paid for a cat was 5.00, she was my first, the rest were unwanted, and I adopted them. God has given me the love of animals to ensure all I can look after, are. One of my friends had a homeless ct living on her farm. She would feed her, but wouldn't turn her in to the humane society because they wanted 45.00. After about 3 years of me pleading with her to give her to me, she finally did. It took lots more than 45.00 to fix her up, close to 2000.00 and she is now happy living with us. My friend can't believe I wasted that money on one cat, she told me I could have helped tons of people with the money. She doesn't see animals as homeless unwanted unloved beings as I do. They deserve help as much as anyone and thats my job in life, and I don't care how much it takes to bring the one I choose to help back to good health. Here's the kicker, she helps all kinds of people buying shoes and making quilts for the homeless, while right under her nose was somebody homeless, and living in the feezing cold to the point her ears are gone with the cold amputating them. She would not let one cat who wanted in to the warm house, into her care. How can a wonderful person turn off their compassion for another living being???

    I will never understand this. Meanwhile, Miss Juno Bumpyhead has the life of Riley now, and shall continue to, in my loving embrace as long as she is alive.

    What a handsome boy who happens to (now) have only one eye. I don't get the impression he is particularly bothered by it just by looking @ the glint in his only eye. I am very partial to orange tabbys & their playful ways. It's wonderful he found a home w/ you & has brothers & sisters. Well done.
