"We love our sponsored kitties from the Blind Cat Rescue and Sanctuary! Natasha and Mike are our sisfur and brofur in spirit. Please visit www.blindcatrescue.com and learn how you can help these very special cats."
Likes: Climbing her cat tower and sleeping on the highest shelf...cuddling first thing in the morning.
Pet-Peeves: Not knowing where 'her people' are in the house! Going to the vet...taking her interferon.
Favorite Toy: Her mouse maze. She loves it!
Favorite Nap Spot: Almost anywhere, but she loves her special cat bed.
Favorite Food: She prefers dry food, especially as she's gotten older. She loves cat milk, too!
Skills: Attacking feet under the covers at night - and she uses claws and teeth! Very effective! Turning the tables on brother Bo and chasing the much larger cat around the house!
Arrival Story: 8/23/10:
After developing an extremely fast-growing brain cancer, our dear Seven departed today for the Bridge. I know her brofur Bo was waiting for her, along with so many other angels. Seven, my sweet, we loved you dearly in your three years with us. I just wish it had been much, much longer! Our hearts are breaking tonight but we know we will see you again one day...
On 7/7/07, my husband went to the grocery store at about 11:30 PM. He was in the dairy section, next to an emergency exit fire door, when he was sure he heard the crying of a kitten. Being the soft-hearted man he is, he asked the check-out crew if they knew of any cats around. Teenagers being teenagers, they weren't very interested, but shortly afterward, he saw two boys headed to the rear delivery docks, one carrying a broom. My husband drove around back, not wanting to leave a defenseless cat or kitten to face the broom-armed boys alone. Beneath a pallet, they found a small kitten, no more than 4-5 weeks old.
Naturally, the kitty came to a forever home with us!
Bio: We named our new family member "Seven" because she was found on 7/7/07 - and she was certainly a lucky kitten!
Seven has been diagnosed with Feline Leukemia, like our Bo. It broke our hearts, but we are giving both kitties interferon and doing our best to keep them healthy and happy. We recently enclosed a terrace and made a screen porch where Seven and Bo can go and watch the world outside. We're hoping they beat the odds and live long, healthy cat lives.
Seven apparently used up her 'cat voice' crying to be found. She can't really meow, though she cried loudly enough to be heard inside the supermarket when my husband heard her! Now she 'chirps' and squeaks. Only very rarely, when she's very upset, will she manage a sort of meow. We think the chirping is cute!
Seven is usually the first to greet her mom when I get home. She is an expert ankle-weaver, which sometimes makes walking difficult. She takes great offense if I don't pick her up for a cuddle within the first minute of arriving home. Seven is definitely a cuddler!
Blind Cat Rescue & Sanctuary was started to answer the need for a safe place for blind cats that were deemed unadoptable by regular shelters and were going to be killed just because they are blind.
We are a registered non profit with the state of North Carolina. There are no paid employees, only volunteers, so all contributions go directly to the kitties.
Rescue is about restoring hope and dignity to creatures for whom no one else cares about. We are but humble vessels to help these magnificent creatures find their forever homes. The responsibility is big but the returns on our emotional investment are greater. You cannot place a value on the look of contentment that comes when an animal is clean, exercised, warm, fed and safe for the first time in its life.

I'm flying in from the Bridge to ask you to help make a dream come true for me and other cats with feline leukemia (FeLV).
My Meowmy has visited several times with the wonderful folks of Blind Cat Rescue of NC. It is Alana, the director's, dream to build a sanctuary for FeLV cats like me and FIV kitties, too.
They are entered in the Pepsi Challenge and are so close to winning $50,000.00!!! Yes! The top ten projects will each win. We were in tenth place but now have dropped to eleventh and the contest ends on NOVEMBER 1. If they aren't back in the top ten by then, all hope will be lost.
I had FeLV while on earth...so did my sisfur Darcy, my brofur Bo, and his dear littermate Cider. FeLV cats can have happy and fulfilling lives but we are killed immediately in shelters and many owners don't want us once they know we are positive. Please help make a sanctuary for us a reality but voting and spreading the word...we deserve to live, too!!
We are only ONE place away from $50,000!!!!! PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE...vote...pass the word...make diary entries asking for votes...use every email address you have...send emails to friends asking for votes...anything you can think of to help make this dream come true.
Here are several ways you can vote:
1) Text 102422 to 73774 You’ll get a confirmation thank for voting text. Only your standard texting fee applies.

Thank you fur reading my diary!!
Purrs from The Bridge,
It has been such a short time since my journey to the Rainbow Bridge. Meowmy & Purrdaddy miss me dreadfully but know that I am no longer in pain and am once again healthy and happy. One day we will be together again.
Meowmy thanks everyone who sent me a prezzie or gave her words of sympathy and love. She wants to answer each one but it's still so very hard for her. But each and every one has been cherished and appreciated.
I'm purring that all my Catster furriends will do one thing in my memory...please spread the word to everyone you can...
When I was on Earth, I had FeLV. So did my brofur, Bo, who journeyed to the Bridge just a few months before me. So did his littermate, Cider. So did our Angel Sisfur Darcy. Meowmy & Purrdaddy lost us all in only a few short years, three of us within one year.
Blind Cat Rescue of NC is competing in the Pepsi Challenge to win funds to build a rescue for...
Feline Leukemia and AIDS positive kitties!!! Hooray!! The majority of shelters euthanize these cats immediately, considering them unadoptable, like blind cats. This shelter would provide a safe haven for 20+ positive cats.
You can vote daily for up to ten worthy causes at this website:
For me...Bo...Darcy...Cider...and our family, please vote every day for this worthy cause. Ask others to vote. Let's make a difference for some very special, deserving cats.
My Meowmy asked me to write a diary entry today for a very special cause!
I have two brofurs who are blind and one sisfur who is visually impaired. My sisfur Scarlett was blind on Earth but now she's a Bridge Angel and sees perfectly!!
Did you know that even 'no-kill' shelters sometimes euthanize blind cats because they are considered 'unadoptable'?
Did you realize that a blind, black blind cat - like our Bones and Charcoal - stands virtually no hope of adoption?
That cats can become blind due to birth defects, trauma, untreated disease, and yes, even human cruelty?
Did you also know that blind cats love to climb??
That they love to play with cat toys??
That they run and jump and enjoy life JUST LIKE OTHER CATS?
Did you know that there's a very special place for blind cats? A place where they are treated with love, respect, and care? It's TRUE!
This heaven-on-earth for blind cats is Blind Cat Rescue & Sanctuary of North Carolina, featured in the June, 2010 issue of Cat Fancy. www.blindcatrescue.com
BCR is the dream and life's work of a very special woman, and the Sanctuary depends on the sponsorships of the cats and donations from caring people around the world.
But YOU can help BCR today and everyday in the Shelter Challenge at The Animal Rescue Site! It's FREE and EASY and it can truly make a difference.
Our Stevie, Bones, and Charcoal are some of the lucky ones. They found a loving, caring home, thanks to messages sent to my Meowmy from BCR! Other kitties need the resources only a Rescue can provide.
Won't you help by voting today and every day during the contest for Blind Cat Rescue of NC? (Don't forget to confirm your vote by identifying the animal photo shown after you vote!)
