Alchemy loves being petted and stroked!
Being picked up, but once he's in a lap, he's content.

Alchemy was sent to us by Michele, the same rescue that saved Peter. I will let her tell you his story:
"I took him from a horrible and I mean HORRIBLE rescuer that had taken him from a shelter where he was dumped at 8 weeks old, for the first 5 months of his life he lived in a 3x3 cage at her filthy, smelly & noisy house. I took him and he adjusted so quickly to my house and the peace and cleanliness!! At about one year his eyes (he was born with the micro eyes) kept getting infected so we decided to just take them out since he couldn't see anyway. So, we did the surgery and he recovered beautifully and seemed so much happier now that his eyes didn't bother him all the time.
Then he started to have seizures and the vet I was using at the time put him on valium which controlled the seizures (he was on it for about a year) then I went to my incredible vet because I wanted a second opinion and he said, "Take him off the valium, it can cause seizures in cats if used long term."
So I weaned him off the medication. That was over two years ago, he's never had one seizure since. My vet thinks that the anesthesia they used on him gave him the seizures and the valium then made it worse and prolonged. Boy having a good vet is worth all the money in the world. Needless to say I never went back to the "rescue vet" that prescribed the valium.
Alchemy's a gorgeous, all black cat who gets along wonderfully with other cats and people. He may hiss a bit if startled, but if you let him know you're there first, he loves to be petted. He can be a bit shy. He loves to be held but doesn't like the process of picking him up. A lovely cat!

The Groups I'm In:
!!!!!!!Rescued Pets!!!!!!!!!, Friends of the Blind Cat Rescue & Sanctuary, We're One-derful!
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.
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.
Please visit our website at www.blindcatrescue.com to find out more and learn how you can help.
