Solano is a very special white tiger. He has one of the most beautiful personalities of all the cats at CARE. Solano was unfortunately born with crossed-eyes. This is a not-uncommon problem in white tigers, particularly those whose parents were related and bred to ensure white offpsring. He was seen as worthless to his previous owners, so CARE gave him a home.
In 2014 we noticed a growth on one of his eyes. It turned out to be cancer, so in order to hopefully keep it from spreading, the eye was removed. Because his vision was always limited, he possibly sees better now with one eye than with both!
