Jack, the Amazing Eyeless Kitty

A kitten named Jack Tripper was born with no eyes at all. But he doesn't let that stop him from doing what he wants, As far as Jack knows, all cats are like him. Jamie adopted him from a colony of barn cats and Jack adapted to his permanent home just fine.
"He's growing like a weed and every day gets more daring and adventurous! He's comfortable with the entire house now, which means I have to go looking for him if I want him. You can take your eyes off of him for just a second and he's gone, climbing up onto something or grabbing at something he shouldn't be. But he's cute, so it's okay.When I take Jack outside to play in the yard he doesn't just walk around the garden now, he runs everywhere! I have never seen a cat run as fast as him. When he hits something, he just turns around and runs the other way." - Jamie

There's a great recent book called "Homer's Odyssey" by Gwen Cooper that tells the tale of a cat who lost both his eyes to infection just as they were opening. He never had sight and has done some pretty amazing things, like teaching himself how to use the toilet at age 11. It's a fascinating story about both Homer and Gwen and a must-read for cat lovers.

I've seen a cat missing an eye, presumably from disease or a fight. It ain't pretty. Good to know this one's eyelids are just shut.
