I was just reading through this thread and loooking at all the great pics.I've had cats all my life and never,ever given them a bath..unless I have a death-wish:)This little guy though,was found very dirty and wet at 6 weeks old,I HAD to clean him.But now he'll be out with me and the other cats,loves mud and to roll in dirt,but comes out sparkly clean after spending an hour cleaning himself.This is Vinnie,By the way..

OMG....He looks just like my Caspers brother.If you notice in the Picture section,I have posted pic of Casper.When we adopted Casper at the Hamilton SPCA,he also had a brother with him.Exactly like yours.We adopted Casper and someone adopted his bro.All in the same night.But Casper has 2 ice blue eyes.And is deaf.We figured that all out within 2 weeks.Wow I just can't get over this.

He is now 1 1/2 yrs old,a wonderful sweet little angel,my other cats might not agree...
Winnie as he was first called,was lucky to be noticed by some friends of mine,they noticed this little dirty thing at the Winston Churchill industrial park.As they already had six cats,they called me and here he is.First I tried to find him a good home.A doctor wanted a cat for her daughters,but the first thing she asked was if"he scratched furniture"where to have him de-clawed?
That did it for me,I suggested she gets an aquarium,cats come with claws!
He has one blue eye,as you can see,but he is not deaf..like many blueyed white cats are.

He is gorgeous chico.

Do you happen to know if he's blind in one eye? Just wondering.

No,he's not blind on the one eye,he's been checked out..sees very well.We had a mystery with disappering fooditems defrosting on the counter,until we found the smelly mess downstairs,a hot-dog,piece of ham etc...Vinnie being the thief,never had a cat that stores food,but I guess there is always a first time:)
