Pawsitively Unique

This little kitten was surrendered to Red Lake Rosie's Rescue all alone in the world. Feline Rescue offered to take in the kitten after a transport to the Metro with five different drivers from RLRR to Bemidji to Motley to Buffalo to Bloomington to the foster home in SW Mpls.

The first thing we noticed was that the kitten was a very unusual color -- not red, not buff, but kind of a dirty orange with brown spots on feet and face like we had never seen.

The second thing we noticed was that the kitten seemed to be entirely deaf and probably visually impaired, too, but nothing slowed down this kitten.

The name Whiskers at Red Lake was changed to Helen for Helen Keller until we learned that she was a HE, so now he is known as Lou for Lou Ferrigno, the deaf actor of Incredible Hulk fame.

Lou is a healthy little guy who appears now to only be hearing impaired.  His eyesight is just fine and he has no problems wrestling and racing around with the other young kittens in his foster home. Lou is already on hold for adoption and will be heading to his forever home once he's had his neuter surgery.
