In 2016, Truffles was found in a church camp in Pennsylvania and swiftly adopted by Danielle Crull and her family. The cat has a sweet temperament and was quickly learning tricks such as to give a high five or sit on command. As a master optician, Crull came to the idea of teaching the pet to wear glasses and help their young clients feel more comfortable when being fitted for glasses.

Crull started bringing Truffles to her office called A Child’s Eyes, located in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania. Children as young as four months old are brought there to be fitted for prescription glasses or eye patches. When children are feeling insecure or scared of trying on glasses, Truffles comes out modeling his own pair and the mood immediately changes. Crull said that the cat’s calm demeanor and charisma bring kids from tears to a sunny and joyful mood.
