    Wonderful kitties Lien! They are each so precious. I have always admired the elegance of Abysinnians. Poor little Roy--how does he do with his blindness?

    Only Bert, but he doesn't really like them. His favourite snack of all time are roses. The minute he smells roses, he will sit and munch on them the entire day.

    How wonderful they all are! And how wonderful you are for giving a home to a cat with "disabilities". You obviously have a good heart!

    All of your kitties, are lovely, Lien! But when I read this post the first time, I hurt so much thinking of poor Roy that I had to log off.

    What a horrible combo. How does he keep from hurting himsef (which is a huge risk as a hemophilliac) if he can't see? How dependent is he on you, and what does he do when you're not home? The photo of his sightless eyes and over-sized kitten ears makes me tear up. And he's still smiling!

    Thanks for sharing your kitties!

    What a wonderful Kitty parent you are I admire you for caring for Roy but we won't say" poor Roy" because he doesn't know he is disabled, as long as his life is rich and full he is a lucky boy.
    Spanky and Bert are pretty too.

    What lucky cats to have Lien taking care of them! I love the photo of Bert in the dish. So cute!

    Cheers,
