Today's Cat of the Day

Wink the Siamese, Domestic Shorthair mix, the Cat of the Day
Name: Wink
Age: Thirteen years old
Gender: Male
Kind: American Shorthair
Home: Urbana, Ohio, USA
   This is Wink: When he was born he had one eye already open and one eye still closed. He stayed this way for a week or so. That's why we named him Wink. This is one cat that is bursting with personality. His voice was definitely inherited from his Dad. (the Siamese ) He uses it to serenade us at 4:00 am. when he feels like playing, but nobody is awake to oblige. He's the consummate lap cat. If I sit in one place for more than 30 seconds he or his Mom tries to see who can get onto my lap first.

      I'm thinking Wink actually realizes how close he came to never being born. We rescued his Mom from a Georgia Animal Shelter, literally just before she was going to be put to sleep. She was starting to have a sinus infection and was also pregnant. Both will get a cat a one-way ticket to the gas chamber. They didn't realize she was pregnant yet and the infection was just starting to show. So, by the next day she probably would have been found out and done for.

      I think that's why he's a bit shy around new people. If the door bell rings he hides until he doesn't hear the new voices anymore. Then out he comes. With an "Are they really gone?" look on his face.

      However, everyone, who does get to see him, goes crazy over his piercing blue eyes and cute black nose.
