Being outdoors in the sunshine - with supervision, of course! Climbing trees!! Yes, blind cats can climb!
Almost anything, as long as someone will play with him!
Favorite Nap Spot:
Under a shade tree
Teaching humans what is possible, if we just try.
Louie was our first blind cat. If it were not for him showing us that blind cats are regular cats who just happened to not see, we might not have been brave enough to take in more.
Louie has taught us what patience and true strength is!
We rescued him at the local Petsmart store. A man told us that he had found him under a porch and was moving and didn't know what to do with him. Louie was so sick and so scared! He was a 6-week-old kitten and sure needed help!
We took him home and got him started on medicine to make him feel better. Unfortunately, the illness ruined his eyes and was blind. The doctors decided it would be best to remove his eyes.
Don't worry about him not having eyes; he can do pretty much everything that the others do. He likes to climb trees (he backs down feet first to get down). The weather is nice here so he chooses to spend a lot of his day outside sitting under a big shade tree. He likes to chase the birds and bugs and sunbathe. He is a super affectionate little fellow. The guy that threw him away sure missed out on a wonderful companion!

Yes, You Can!
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.
