It’s a hardscrabble life for adult cats living outside on their own, but for kittens, the daily struggle is especially daunting. Inadvertently in the kitten scrum to survive, injuries occur, and often those to the vulnerable eye area. A testament to their resiliency, most of these young cats adapt with little long-term effect save their appearance.

Here are some remarkable cats who have taken an injury in stride and hope a potential adopter can do the same. Georgie, 2-years-old, had an eye infection as a kitten and as a result, the eye was removed. Cirrus is much more comfortable now that her eye has been removed. Before, the eyelid was folded in, causing her constant irritation. Virgil’s eye did not develop properly, but the vet prescribed topical ointments that are helping.

Come meet these brave cats and get to know their inner beauty. Cat adoption fee is $90.

The Door County Humane Society, located at 3475 Park Drive (County PD – the road to Potawatomi State Park), Sturgeon Bay, is open for adoption Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday from noon – 4 pm. For more information call 920.746.1111 or visit
