Spangles, the cross-eyed cat
Spangles, the cross-eyed cat - 26 Sep 2012
FULL WORDS LINK: http://www.rexfeatures.com/nanolink/i9nq Meet Spangles, the cutest cross-eyed cat pirate you will see this year. The adorable kitty is picking up legions of fans after his proud owner Mary Buchanan posted a picture of him in swashbuckling costume online. Now the three-year-old feline has his own Facebook fan page where five thousand followers eagerly await daily pictures. Spangles can so far be seen dressed in quirky costumes including a frog, tiger and unicorn. Mary, 25, a college student from Spartanburg, South Carolina, took him in from a neighbour when he was five months old. She explains: "Spangles was born on July 4th, so with the Star-Spangled Banner that's how I got his name. "He was born with one cross eye, but he's never had problems walking or anything. He's never run into things, or wobbled. He can see perfectly fine. He has been checked out by a vet, and no surgery is needed to correct his sight.
