I love Lena's crooked, quizzical little face.
Her jaw is underslung and her left eye is smaller than her right eye. She was badly--almost fatally--mauled by a dog when she was just a few weeks old. A canine tooth infected her spinal cord and she fought fevers of over 105 degrees off and on for a month.
She was left with idiopathic epilepsy and damage to some of the growth plates in her skull.
She also seems rather slow but that may be just Persian laid-backed-ness and not a mental handicap.
Whatever life dealt her, she has always been a happy, pleasant and friendly cat who is universally loved by all the other residents of the House of Many Cats.
