Although Dmitri is deprived of his two eyes, he remains happy, content and in good health. The cat, who is about 4 years old, loves to safely enter his owner’s small garden. “He behaves like any other cat,” explained his benefactor, “he knows my apartment, jumps on furniture, plays with toys and is very affectionate. […] He is perfect just the way he is. »
