This week, our featured Pet of the Week is One-Eyed Willie, who just happens to be the softest, cutest little kitten you've ever seen.

This is why the folks at the Animal Welfare Society are so good. Willie was a young stray kitten who came to the shelter with a really bad eye infection. The vet who took care of him said the best way to treat it was to remove the eye.

Fortunately, animals can get along fine with one eye, and Willie is only three months old, so he'll definitely adapt well to his slight handicap.

Willie is a domestic short hair tabby, who's got the softest fur you'll ever feel. He's a happy little dude who's also a purr pot, and loves to just sit in your lap and purr away.

Willie is all ready to head home, he's had all his shots and has been nurtured too, so all you need to do is head over to the Animal Welfare Society and ask for One-Eyed Willie.

Here's an up close and personal look at Willie:

For more information on Willie, and all the other adoptable Dogs and Cats, call the Animal Welfare Society at (860) 354-1350 or visit them on Dodd Road in New Milford.

They’re open Tuesday from 11 AM to 7 PM, and Wednesday through Saturday from 11 AM to 2 PM.

Keep in mind the Animal Welfare Society is undergoing construction to serve you and the animals better, so just call them before you go.
