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!
