|Meet Maggie - The Kitten With No Eyelids|
How did your humans find you?

What did your humans think when they found out you had no eyelids?
They wondered at first if it was just a really bad eye infection because there was a lot of crust and goop. However, once that was cleaned off, Dr. Meyer saw that I was simply born without them! They weren't sure if I was going to make it, but they treated my eye infection and got me through it! Once I am 6 lbs, I can have surgery to re-create eye lid.

What is life without eyelids like for you?
I don't think it makes me much different than other kitties. My mom and dad put lubricating ointment in my eyes at least 3 times a day. It makes my eyes feel wonderful because I sit very nicely for it. I sleep a lot like every other cat and even though my eyes aren't closed all the way it doesn't bother me!
Do you live with any other animal friends?
2 Crested geckos, 2 fat tailed geckos and a Russian tortoise. My dog friends are very nice to me and I love to sleep on their backs. I also love sleeping with the tortoise and watching the geckos play in their terrarium.

What are your hobbies?
I love climbing my cat tree, sitting in the window watching the squirrels, running around like a maniac, and playing with the little squeaky mouse toys my mom gets me!
What is your favorite food or snack?
I love to steal crackers from my mom and dad. Whenever they have them out, I always try to steal them. I also love the Whisker Lickin' treats I get after I get my eye goop!
What is your favorite thing to do with your humans?
I love napping with my dad. Mom laughs at us because I purr very loudly and my dad snores very loudly! I also love chewing on my moms hair while she works on her computer!
