Some of us have had to make the dreaded trip to the optician because our eyes just don’t have 20:20 vision.
If you’re one of the many who have not been blessed with perfect vision, you’ll know that getting your first pair of glasses can be extremely daunting.
One rescue cat however has been hired to make that scary trip at little less scary.
Back to work Monday! Ready to serve!

Truffles the cat was adopted back in 2016 by Danielle Crull who own’s an optician called “A Child’s Eyes” in Mechanicburg, Pennsylvania, USA.
