I know your gut instinct is probably going to be to panic a bit when you see the picture above, but I want to make a couple things very clear before that reaction takes its full effect. First, the kitten you’re looking at is, despite appearances, very happy and playful. He’s eating and drinking and playing just like a kitten should. That may be hard to believe, given the state of his eye, but I swear that it’s true. Second, and I’m saying this one in large part to try to deflect a few emails before you start writing them, he has already seen a vet.
