Kitty Star of the Week for February 5 - 11, 2006

Chester is the star this week, and he has a story that started out sad at first, but has a happy ending. A couple of little boys found Chester as a stray with a severe eye problem and took him to the vet, Dr. Sharman, in town. Chester had to have his eye removed. Then just a short time later, the same problem repeated itself in his other eye -- it swelled to 3 times its normal size and became very painful. The problem did not respond to treatment.

Dr. Sharman decided the second eye had to be removed as well, and he was concerned about how Chester would adapt. He also got attached to Chester and decided to keep him. And, fortunately Chester has adapted extremely well to being blind.

Chester is doing well

Chester is a wonderful, sweet kitty that is loving and so friendly to everybody that comes in the office. He gets around the office just fine and seems very happy, even without his eyes, at least he is not in any pain anymore. He seems to really know that human beings helped him out and he is so grateful. A friend of Chester's says, "He is so into being a personality and the center of attention. I think he really knows who I am -- by scent of course. He seems to know when I show up. He sleeps in a box under the receptionists desk and is quite cozy there."
