Cat selfies: Popoki tries her hand

One of the most striking things about foster forever cat Popoki is her eye color. Check out that amber! It's a perfect color for fall.

And that's why this cold she picked up at the shelter has been so heartbreaking. Her poor eyes have been all gummed up, and her poor cheeks were red and inflamed.

Thankfully, with a little bit of oral medication, a little cleaning and a little topical medication, she's on the mend. And her eyes are glowing with beauty once more.

(Although she clearly doesn't like all of the handling.)

Now, I just need her to kick the sniffles for good, so we can see how she integrates into the rest of the household. I have no idea if she'll enjoy living with a few other cats, and based on her small interactions with Boston terrier Sinead, she might not like the dogs, either.

But all of that is fodder for future blog posts. For now, let's just admire the eyes, shall we?

And check out the other blogs in this hop! It's a fun one, and I'm so happy to be joining it for the first time. I've admired this series for so long, so it's great to join in.
