Meet Henry the pirate cat who has three legs, one eye and a big purrsonality.

“He was born with a non-functional leg and an eye with recurring ulcer issues. So in one giant operation, they removed his eye, his leg, and neutered him! Must have been one heck of a rough wake-up for the little guy… According to his medical records, he was purring and cuddling and ruling around the very next day,” said Phil.

They decided to adopt Henry when they met him. It was love at first sight. “We didn’t realize until he woke up that he was missing parts. We adopted him right away, as he was extremely cute and cuddly.”

Henry doesn’t seem to notice he’s any different. “He runs around like crazy, eats like a champ and frequently tackles his much larger, older ‘brother’, Johnny… He is SO fluffy and cute, and has an amazing personality,” he added.

Meet Aragorn, a beautiful one-eyed cat who has a permanent wink. He lost an eye but gained a chance to live.

“He was brought to the ER for euthanasia at 3 weeks old after being attacked by a dog with his eye hanging out,” said Aragorn’s human mom via imgur. When she met the little ginger boy, she knew she had to adopt him.

This is Aragorn cuddling with his human mom in his new home.

When grandpa Horst walked into the Best Friends adoption center, a cat with only one eye caught his attention. Just like the cat, grandpa Horst can only see through one eye.

“Horst and Mimi bonded at the Best Friends Pet Adoption Center in Salt Lake City just a few weeks ago,” Best Friends Animal Society – Utah wrote. After meeting Mimi, he knew right away that that was the cat for him.

You can’t see out of your right eye, and I can’t see out of my left, but together we can see the world,” Horst said to his furry companion in his home in Colorado.

My grandfather and Mimi are truly happy together! I haven’t seen him this happy in years,” said Horst’s granddaughter Heather.

Grandpa Horst met Mimi the one-eyed cat at the Best Friends adoption center in Utah. Just like the cat, grandpa Horst can only see through one eye.

Odin the cat had a hard life in his younger years, but he found a family who never gave up on him.

“Odin had a hard life at the beginning, born to an abusive, neglectful family, he was an outside cat who got more than his share of beatings from both animals and people nearby. Scars are apparent on his ears, and especially his nose, of past battles,” said Casey Hill on facebook. Odin wasn’t brought into the shelter until he lost his eye from a pellet gun.

The shelter removed the pellet, but couldn’t save his eye.

“I saw images of Odin (called ‘Winky’ by the shelter) on their website in March of 2008, and something about him pulled me. I begged my husband, who at the time didn’t want another cat, to at least let me go and take a look at him. He was about a year old at the time and still had the stitches in his eye when he was brought out to us. The woman handed him to my husband and he laid his head against my husband’s chest,” Hill wrote.

“Call it love at first sight, the next day we were taking him home. He was clearly hanging on. A strong cat, he pulled through another surgery to remove the abscessed tooth and we discovered through the vet that his blood work returned with his blood sugar through the roof, meaning that not only was he suffering from his ordeal, he was diabetic.

My husband worried for ages that he wouldn’t make it, but I kept hoping, kept praying. I applied medicine to his eye to help it heal and kept a close watch on the spot where his tooth was.

Now nearly a year later, he’s gained to a healthy weight, his eye has healed marvelously, and his blood sugar is still maintained through insulin shots. He’s well behaved, never once fighting me while giving him shots. He sleeps on my legs at night, and purrs nearly every time I touch him. I believe that love, more than anything, kept us going, and has allowed him to be this part of my life.

Even after everything he’s been through, he’s still beautiful in my eyes. Some may cringe, but I look at him and see an angel.”

“My fiancé rescued a one-eyed cat who is so overly attached that she demands sitting at his computer, holding his face and licking his nose… This cat just has so much love for him and attempts to show him this way,” said reddit user meow315.

It is like her way of telling him “thank you for saving me.”

Meet Scallywag, the one-eyed Scottish fold. He was born with only 1 functioning eye, but the little pirate cat doesn’t think he’s any different.

His adoptive parents worked out having the surgery and adoption months in advance with the people who had him. “We waited for him to be healthy and strong enough after a few months and had it removed/cleaned/closed so that there [hopefully] wouldn’t be any future problems with infection/draining etc. So far (he’s just under 2.5 years old) he’s been great” they wrote via reddit.

“Everyone asks how he plays and gets around with the eye and basically since day one its always been fine, really no different from another cat. He LOVES to play with all his toys, jumping at stuff attached to a string, he even plays a game of fetch with these soft nerf-like little ball toys we have.”
