Kitty Born Blind Uses Other Senses To Help Him See


Being blind doesn’t make this kitty disabled. He uses his other senses to help him ‘see.’

He was born this way, blind in both eyes. When he was little he learned how to navigate with his other senses. (reddit)

Even though he can’t see the bowl, he knows how to have fun with it.

He doesn’t need vision to know there is something fishy in the tank. “Oh hi, umm I was just checking on them,” he says.

Cat Adopts Baby Squirrel


A tiny orphan squirrel fell out of a tree but was saved by a family and a cat who took it in and began to raise it as her own.

Lisa Reichel and her family found the baby squirrel and attempted to save it. They were told by a wildlife expert to use a dropper to nurse it but the little squirrel wouldn’t accept it.

That’s when Lisa thought about Jingles the cat, who had a litter of her own. She placed the squirrel with the cat mother and Jingles started nursing her new baby.

9 Year Old Cat Gets Help On Facebook To Find A Home


Lady, a 9 year old cat, had stayed at the shelter for nearly a year. Afraid that she wouldn’t find a home, Spokane Humane Society started a campaign on Facebook to help Lady find a home.

Spokane Humane Society wrote on Facebook: “Lady has been at the Spokane Humane Society since 5/13/2013; nearly a year! She is about 9 years old and was surrendered because her owners didn’t feel like they had enough time for her. At first Lady was Miss Sassy Pants with other cats as well as with people. The longer she has been here the more she has mellowed out, but when Lady started acting lethargic and not sassy at all we knew something was wrong.

Our Vets looked at her on March 13th and determined that she was diabetic, but they thought it was caught very early and were hopeful that she would be easy to regulate. It took us awhile to get her glucose levels regulated, but now that she is back to her normal self we are hoping to find an adoptive home or rescue to help her stay regulated and find her a place (other than the shelter) to call home.

Nowadays the only time we really see Lady’s attitude come out is when we try to make her do something she doesn’t want to do (like draw blood), though moving her to a new environment might bring out her sassy side once again. Most of the time Lady enjoys talking to you, following you, sitting on your lap, and giving you kisses. She also (as you can see in the picture) likes to have a cat tower handy at all times.”

The photo has gotten over 20k shares on Facebook. A week after Lady’s story went out, she was headed to her new home. “We’re very excited to announce that Lady (inside the carrier) our long time kitty with diabetes was just adopted!”

Tango And Cash


Tango and Cash were found in a box in a forest last December. ”My dad came home after work and told me he found a box with two kittens in it. I didn’t prepare myself for what we found.”

“He told me he found a box with two kittens after getting a complaint in this particular area about the roads being blocked with snow. We returned after work to see if the kittens had been picked up. This is what we saw.”

“When I peaked in, my heart broke. This kitten is obviously very sick and cold. There’s two dishes of food with a blanket.”

“We picked up the box and brought the cats to our home. If you separate them, they meow continuously until they’re reunited.”

“We gave them a bath! They’re extremely skinny. They don’t really seem to know what to do with the tiny bowl of kitten food we put down.”

“We wrapped them up and supplied them with body heat. Already we can see them perking up. They are honestly the sweetest cats I’ve seen.”

“She keeps rubbing up against anyone who will let her. She keeps purring like crazy.”

“The kittens have definitely found their home. We’ve put a lot emotionally into them and couldn’t bare to separate them or give them away.

Dillon The Cat Born Blind, Lives A Normal Happy Life


Dillon was born blind and lived on the streets for four months before being rescued by the Animal Rescue League of Boston. Even though Dillon has never had sight, it doesn’t stop him from living a normal and happy feline life.

Dillon’s human wrote via Kitty Army: “He never fully developed eyes — his veterinarians were never certain if it was because of genetics or because of ocular herpes. His veterinarians were fairly sure, however, that he never had sight. To prevent ulceration and infection of what little, non-functional eyes he had developed, his veterinarians removed the organs and sewed him up. Because he was only a kitten, it allowed for his other senses to develop so fully and richly that today he carries on a very normal feline life — and yet he is also so extraordinary.

For us, it was love at first sight. We knew from the moment we saw him that we would adopt him, and he has completely adopted us as well. He follows us around like a little duckling, weaving in and out of our legs, ‘staring’ up at us with a look of complete contentment. He is honestly such a happy cat.

He is constantly surprising us. Things we thought he would never do, like get up on furniture and run around the house, he has completely mastered. He hardly ever bumps into anything, as he has mapped out every inch of our place and knows it by heart. Even when we move furniture around, it doesn’t phase him. He’s used to it in seconds — his memory must be so sharp.
Most people who adopt will tell you that yes, they may have saved their animal, but in turn their animal has saved them as well.”
