I have this one window on the South side of my house.

It has begged for a kitty to lie in its sunshine since the day we moved in.

Guess what?

Yesterday two kitties moved in…and today one moved into my sunny patch.

Percy in the sun.

This is Percy. He’s 2. He’s bonus kitty to clearance kitty.

This is clearance kitty.


Clearance kitty is the one that won me over in his adoption profile. He’s four. He’s a polydactyl, which means he has extra toes on his front paws so it looks like he has mittens. It’s amazing.

He’s missing the tip of his left ear too.

He also only has one eye, which is hard to tell because he’s all passed out asleep on top of church books. It was surgically removed in early July and he has been at the Human Society ever since.

Well until yesterday.

Now he’s our one eyed, five toed, licking furry kibble eater.

We named him Wink VanGogh. You can just call him Wink.

I love him so much.

He’s still pretty shy until the little humans that live here are in bed. He also mrows a lot.

Mrow, mrow, mrow, mrow, mrow, mrow…I missed kitty mrows.

And the kneading! Oh…he gets comfy and those extra toes go into action mode.

And Percy? He’s a lover.

Hanging out with Percy.

I didn’t think I could get happier.

Turns out?

I could.

Rescue pets will love you better.


  1. Everyone looks so happy. Clearance kitty looks like he came home and that was that. Love love love the kitty cats. I have one that hangs his behind over my shoulder too.
    Congrats. Enjoy the love.

  2. I love this! It is so great you decided to get adult cats. You have a good heart!

  3. OMGosh!

    MY in laws had a multi-toed cat who was orange with one eye too! Mo-Toe (yeah, my father in law went there) lost his eye to a fight. He was the sweetest cat evah!

  4. I remember Wink very well. I’m a volunteer at the shelter and it’s so nice to see how much the cats are loved once they get a new home. I’m so happy for Wink, Percy and your family. Thank you.
