After treating the animal's infected eyes with antibiotics for a few weeks,Dr. Carriker came to the realization that they would not heal and sadly, the kitten would never be able to see again.He made the difficult decision to remove the feline's eyes. So, as soon as the feline was strong enough, he undertook the tricky surgery and start the cat on what looked set to be a long road to recovery.

Dr. Carriker decided to name the little guy Mr.Peepers and a short while after surgery proved himself to be stronger than he at first seemed. The veterinarian described the cat's resilience in a Facebook post:

When you're having a rough day, think about Mr. Peepers. I had to remove his 2 rotten eyes yesterday, and today he's purring and loving on everyone. Little fighter!!!!!!!

Only a day after surgery, the tiny kitten was already playing just like any other cat. He was clearly determined not to let his disability get him down.

Cats are very adaptable creatures and Mr.Peepers should be able to go on to live a perfectly normal happy and healthy life.
