Some cats have been dealt a foul hand when it comes to difficulties.
This lovely kitty was certainly one of them.
His mange condition was severe and actually deprived him of his sight.
No one ever got to see his eyes and most people avoided touching him altogether.
Cotton the cat was definitely down on his luck when he was picked up by Carmen Weinberg, founder of the Animal Friends Project.
He had appeared on a man’s porch in Royal Palm Beach, Florida – eating cat food the man had left out for his own cat.
Once under the care of the folks at Animal Friends, Cotton plumped back up and, eventually, opened his beautiful eyes.
Thankfully, a little care and medical treatment was all he needed to be cured of his vision impairment and regain his health.
Now, all he needs is a loving family to call his own!
