The blind cats are SO excited!! Our rescue has the chance to win $10,000.!!!! I don't know much about money, but the humans seem to think this is a LOT.

The best part is...our Catster furriends can help! And it's so easy!

All you have to do is visit the link below. Fill in a few fields of information, and viola! You've voted for Blind Cat Rescue and Sanctuary of North Carolina! You can even vote anonymously, if you prefer. (Whatever anonymously means...)

So please vote for us today. Tell your furriends and ask them to vote. We want to build a new cattery so we can save more blind cats. Wouldn't that be a wonderful way to start the New Year?

Thanks and a zillion purrs!

My Wonderful Sponsor!!!!

At Blind Cat Rescue, we depend on our donors and sponsors for everything! Nobody who works there is paid - they're all volunteers. Without kind, caring, and generous folks who sponsor a cat at the rescue, we blind cats would be homeless once again.

Our Catster Meowmy volunteers to create and maintain our web pages and she sponsors two of us - Natasha and Mike. (She'd sponsor every cat here if she could afford it!!!!)

I have my own special sponsor! Baby's family found me on Catster and my story touched their loving hearts. Baby is Catster Cat 861737. By sponsoring me, they help the rescue provide me with shelter, food, vet care, any medicines I might need, and most of all, with a place I can live safely and be loved by our volunteers and caregivers. It makes me purr so loudly, knowing that a family so far away cares about me!!!

If you'd like to learn more, please visit the Rescue's website:
www.blindcatrescue.com

We'd love for you to sponsor one of us and become part of our special family!

Billions of headbonks, millions of sandpaper kisses, and a ton of purrs to Baby and her family!!!

Gratefully,
Teddi, the Tiny

 

I'm a Survivor!

Meow, everycat! My name's Teddi, and I share a story with many of you, I'm sure. I was abused by bad humans and nearly died. My rescuers found my lying bloody and motionless in a box beside an expressway in LA. I must have had kitty angels looking after me because these good humans rushed me to a Veterinary Hospital. I had severe herpes in the both eyes that had been left untreated from a URI. I was so dehydrated and emaciated, and so small, that I looked like a four month old kitten. I tried to tell them that I was really eight years old!!!!

The vet said I might not survive the night, and if I did live, I would need surgery in both eyes, and I would be blind.

I showed them! I was so determined to survive, and I did!

I did end up losing my eyes, but I've learned to live in darkness. I still haven't grown any bigger and look more like a big kitten than an adult cat.

The kind people who rescued me from certain death were unable to keep me themselves, and eventually, I found myself living at the Blind Cat Rescue & Sanctuary in North Carolina. This wonderful nonprofit group offers life, care, and love to cats who probably would face certain death otherwise, as we're not considered 'adoptable' by shelters.

So now you know who I am. I hope you'll visit my Catster page and the Blind Cat Rescue Site at www.blindcatrescue.com. Keep reading and you'll learn about a very special cat in my life - Baby!
