A Pennsylvania optician whose practice is for children with eye problems has a cat named Truffles who helps make kids feel better by wearing glasses herself. Danielle Crull's practice in Mechanicsburg is called A Child's Eyes, and her primary focus is infants, toddlers and children in elementary school. The young children are often scared of anything coming near their eyes and Truffles helps with the array of glasses she wears, so it's not so scary for the kids when they see it. Crull told CNN, "The story that happens over and over is a little one is crying and she comes out and I put glasses on her, and they immediately stop crying and laugh and put their own glasses on."
Truffles is our office kitty and she wears glasses to help children feel more comfortable in theirs. This video is the first video she did with her new green glasses. Truffles has been wearing glasses for us since she was about 6 months old. Her first pair was pink and like most kids, she out grew them and needed new ones!
Here is the story CBS News did on Truffles and her glasses over a year ago...
Truffles the cat helps kids feel comfortable at an eye doctor in Pennsylvania. She even wears glasses and eye patches so children feel less ashamed to have them.
