Sadly there are people wary of animals that don’t realize what to expect from them. As a kitten, Ace had a tough start in life being homeless and having to fend for himself on the street.
Thankfully, a loving family rescued and adopted him however as a result of an infection he lost an eye. His owners say his unusual appearance does frighten some children are frightened so they installed a home security camera to keep an eye on the furry feline.
The camera captured a boy visiting Ace on daily basis, one day his actions were captured on camera. Ace’s owner Norma Maikovich says that the little cat is misunderstood by some of the people he encounters.
“He can sometimes seem scary, especially to children,” Norma Maikovich, Ace’s owner,explains. “People are often hesitant to greet him.”
Not everyone who meets this adorable cat feels the sa,e. Ace absolutely loves to spend the days lying in his owner’s driveway so to keep an eye on him, Norma put up a security camera. What she spotted one day warmed her heart.

Ace has gone viral in a video clip we shared yesterday so we wanted to take the time to share his story. We adopted Ace and his brother Ramsey as kittens and both have one eye due to infection/illness they contracted as strays when they were born. Ramsey is partially blind, but he’s such a sweetheart. His brother Ace acts as his guide and has such a big personality, he’s very adventurous. He likes to sit on the front porch and watch the neighbors. Everyone knows who Ace is! When looking at our cameras, we found that our kid neighbor visits almost every day. It filled our hearts with joy to see our little guy make friends. It just shows that when given a life, a home and a family, animals with disabilities are worth it too. #piratepets #petswithdisabilities #adoptdontshop #oneeyedcatsofinstagram #cats
In a video you can see how the boy and Ace cuddle and play with each other. It’s obvious that Ace adores his mate.
The cat’s true personality comes out as she’s so gentle with her friend and the boy seems so happy to see her and play with her.
“It melted our hearts, not just seeing how much Ace loves this boy, but how familiar they were to each other!” Norma explains. “Sitting by the front door, as soon as Ace sees his friend, he rushes out to greet him. It’s awesome, this bond they share.”
Ace’s friend no longer needs to sneak into the driveway to play with him; Norma has told the boy he is welcome any time.
“A friend of Ace’s is a friend of ours,” she said. “Once we realized that they were fast friends, it made us really happy.”
Take a look at the adorable encounter in the video clip below.
