"Catster folks are wonderful!! Teddy Bearz' & Wally's Meowmy sent me this BEAUTIFUL new blanket, made by Hazel Lucy's mommy!!! It's so very soft and cuddly.
Thank you, Wally's Meowmy, for being such a special friend to us!"
"Wally & Teddy Bearz' Meowmy wrote to a wonderful new company about donating toys for us. They donated 120 catnip toys just for us!!!! Blind cats love catnip 'cause we can smell where our toys are hiding! We love our catnip toys!"
Arrival Story: Keller is a super sweet fellow whose owner decided that his dislike of cat hair everywhere was stronger than his desire for Keller's companionship. In his defense, he wanted to make sure Keller was safe and made a large donation to our building fund and is sponsoring Keller for the rest of his life... Keller is a very sweet fellow who loves to be loved on. He is a very quiet boy who does not bother anyone.
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.
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!

(Catster Meowmy doesn't know how to do a link in my diary. Poor dumb Catster Meowmy!)
Today seems the purrrrrfect day to begin a diary!!
My name is Keller. All cats are special, of course, so I won't say I'm a special kitty. But I am a bit different from most cats because I am blind. I live in North Carolina at the Blind Cat Rescue and Sanctuary. I'll write more about it later in another entry.
'Cause today I want to celebrate Pirate Day!!!! Argggghhh! I've had fun being a pirate this week. I've helped my Sanctuary friends create pirate pictures - with the help of Catster Meowmy, of course. I've give special pirate flags and pirate gatos to my Catster friends. And best of all ------
I've said ARRRRRRGH!!!! a lot! (I like saying ARRRRRRRRGH!!!!!)
When I got up this morning, my photo was on the front page of Catster!!!! I'm Cat of the Day!!!!!! Wow!!! ME?? Thank you so much, Catster HQ, for this honor. The best part for me is that maybe even more Catster folks will read about the Rescue & Sanctuary. That would be wonderful!!!!
Lots and lots of friends, old and new, have left rosettes, pirate flags, pirate gatos, etc. for me already. I promise, promise, promise to thank each of you personally, but Catster Meowmy must go to work right now. (I understand that work is very, very important 'cause it buys cat food for Catster Meowmy's cats at home. And it pays for her to sponsor two of us here at the Rescue. So she must go to this place called 'work'.)
For now, please know that I appreciate your kind words and gifts from the bottom of my little kitty heart.
