Meet Ace, an incredibly sweet cat who was rescued as a stray kitten from the streets. Unfortunately, he lost one of his eyes due to an infection. For this reason, he is a bit different and often misunderstood by some new folks he meets. Nobody wants to play with him, adults are often hesitant to greet him, and children can find him scary.
“He can sometimes seem scary, especially to children,” Norma Malkovich, Ace’s owner, told The Dodo. “People are often hesitant to greet him.”
Despite losing one eye, Ace is very adventurous and isn’t afraid of anything. He loves to spend his days lounging on the porch out front, watching the world go by. “He never strays further than that, and he’s happy and content with this.”
Recently, Maikovich set up a home security camera to keep tabs on him and it was such a surprise when they caught a little boy playing with Ace on the security camera.
“When looking at the footage, we noticed one particular boy tends to visit almost every single day,” Maikovich said.
The neighbor boy takes time out of his routine almost daily to visit and play with the “scary” cat. It melted the owners’ hearts, and Ace clearly adores him for it.
