Help us cover the cost of the surgery that is likely required to remove this feral kitten's blind eyes and to find him a safe, forever home!
Lil Blind Kitty is a feral kitten who lives in a suburban backyard on Long Island. Shortly before Hurricane Sandy, the family who owns the backyard where Lil Blind Kitty lives noticed him and his tiny, useless eyes. They began feeding him and his mama and have begun a rescue and adoption process. These good, kind people are unable to keep Lil Blind Kitty because of their dogs and because of cat allergies, but they are trying to do the right thing by helping him get medical care and find a forever home!
Lil Blind Kitty and his mama have been caught and are being temporarily assisted by Save-A-Pet Animal Rescue of Long Island. These people are helping Lil Blind Kitty and hundreds of other animals who have been affected by homelessness and by Hurricane Sandy. Update: It's a boy! Rescuers have confirmed that LBK is a little boy and report that he was a cuddly purr-ball when removed from his trap! Update #2: LBK's mama has been spayed and released in the neighborhood in which she was caught. It's not too late to find her an adoptive home! Update #3: Lil Blind Kitty is actually Lil Half-Blind Kitty! The veterinarian says LBK can see a little and is hopeful that surgery won't be necessary! But he still needs some medical care, neutering, and a home!
If you are interested in fostering or adopting Lil Blind Kitty, please let us know. The funds for his medical care will be given to Save-A-Pet and to the veterinarian(s) who care for Lil Blind Kitty and his mama.
Lil Blind Kitty is a playful little guy who hasn't let blindness change his bright, kitty spirit. He and his mama survived Hurricane Sandy on Long Island, but with winter closing in, we fear for Lil Blind Kitty's future. Help us get him good medical care, and find him a forever home!
Lil Blind Kitty has many challenges ahead of him: 1) he's feral, so he has to be acclimatized to people, 2) he is blind, or at least vision-impaired, so he may require a great deal of medical care and will certainly need a safe home, 3) he's black, which makes him far less likely to be adopted, even without the visual impairment."Because love is righteousAnd it might justSave the whole world from this global crisis..." -MC Yogi
