Arrival Story:
Here is the actual email from his owner asking me to take him and it explains his story: "Hi. I contacted you several years ago about my blind cat, Simon. You offered to take him, but at the last moment I chickened out and kept him. Well, I'm finally ready to let him go. Can you take him now? Simon is a wonderful 6 year old grey tabby blind from birth due to congenital glaucoma, who had his eyes removed at 8 months old. I love him dearly, and he's a great cat, but he was neutered after reaching maturity and he sprays in the house. I tried everything for 5 years but could not stop him, so I built him a large 3-story outdoor shelter he accesses through a window, with an indoor cage for his bed, food, water, and litterbox. He's been out there for about a year now. I've done all I can to keep him happy, and he loves being outdoors, but he also really misses human and feline companionship. He yowls when he hears me, and I let him in and cuddle him daily, but I can't let him loose in the house. It's not fair to him to keep him alone outside forever. He's great with other cats -- I've had four other cats through here in the last few years, and he's picked up with them immediately with only a little hissing. He's had continual vet care and all his shots, has no medical conditions, and is healthy, friendly and energetic. If you can take him, I'll fly him out there myself and sponsor him for the rest of his life. (I'm in California.) Please let me know if you can take him."

Bio:
We moved Simon into the house with Greta, Walter, and Oreo and he is doing much better. They love other cats and have won him over. Simon's story shows that not all blind cats at the Sanctuary came from abusive or neglectful backgrounds. Simon was fortunate enough to have a caring, responsible owner. We're glad he's here now and enjoying the company of other kitties!

Sanctuary:
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. Please visit our website at www.blindcatrescue.com to find out more and learn how you can help.
