The Date Is Set

Doesn't he looks so much better. 
And the good news is - Archie is coming home on Wednesday. 
I'm really looking forward to finally meeting him. 
Because he has blue eyes the pink eye reflection is amazing. I remember struggling to get decent photos of blue-eyed cats at Freshfields .. they always looked red. 

I've been googling ...  As for that red glow, it is caused by light reflected from a layer of tissue called the “tapetum lucidum,” which lines the back of the eyeball behind the retina. It acts like a mirror, reflecting light that was not absorbed the first time it passed through the retina back through the eyes onto the light sensor cells in the retina. Blue eyes glow red, while golden and green eyes cast green glows. 
Now we know!
