Daisy is my one eyed pirate cat. She lost her eye in a cat fight before she came to live with me. I don't think she knows she's missing an eye, and other than looks I forget about it too. On a occasion, she's a tiny bit clumsy by misjudging a jump, but even that is rare.
I got her from a friend whose roommate had her as a kitten and then changed his mind about wanting to care for a cat. She was put outside in a neighborhood that's over run by strays, and that's how she came to lose her eye.
She's a little skittish around new people and animals, but she's very friendly with the people who live in our house. She gets along with my other cat and small dog, but is absolutely terrified of my overly friendly Pit Bull.
She has had some litter box issues where she's inexplicably preferred to use my closet as her bathroom instead. Thankfully, we now live in a house where I can shut my closet door. I also now have 3 litter boxes in the house for my 2 cats.
I feed her a mix of dry and wet food, an she's never had any health problems while being my cat.
