Playing with her brother Paul!
Anything she can climb or that has catnip!
She'll eat anything!
Playing with anything & anybody!
Little Tess and her brother Paul came from a hoarder situation in Washington, DC. They arrived along with Serena and their story shows how it takes a village to help the little blind ones.
Tess, Paul, and Serena came from a hoarding situation by a well-meaning elderly gentleman. He was feeding all the local strays but did not get anyone fixed, and of course, they kept reproducing.
Someone finally got involved and put out a call for help and reached a wonderful rescuer who had no idea what she had really walked into. This gentleman probably had 50 or so cats, and many litters of kittens. Many of the kittens were sick. When she first arrived, Tess was sick and blind. With love and care, now she is a healthy, sassy little girl. Soon she will be old enough to get spayed, and we will be removing one of her eyes. Tess loves to run and play, and she thinks your legs are meant for climbing. She's all kitten and all fun!

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.

My sponsor-kitty China Doll has tagged me to play! Yay!!!
(Note to those that I tag...Just copy the questions and delete my answers. Then tag four furriends to play along!)
1)-What color is your collar? I don't have a collor but I think if I did...it would be pink! I'm a blind kitty but pink sounds like such a pretty color!
2)-What kind of food do you eat? Here at Blind Cat Rescue, we eat Authority brand foods. I'm a big fan of the chicken flavors!
3)-What are your favorite treats? My favorite treats are anything soft and chewy!
4)-Do you have a Valentine or significant other? I have lots and lots of furriends who live with me here at the Rescue. And even more Catster furriends!!!! They're all my Valentines!! ;-)
5)-Do you get table scraps? No, we don't get scraps here but that's okay. We get lots of delicious food.
6)-What is your favorite toy? Anything with CATNIP!
7)-When is your birthday? I don't know for sure 'cause I'm a rescue kitty.
8)-How many times a day do you get to eat? We are fed 2x a day. I could eat lots more than that!
9)-Do you have a favorite color? I don't know about colors but I'm sure pink is pretty, so I'll say pink!
10)-Do you hope all your pals put this in their diary? Yes, please!!
My turn to tag!!! I will invite these kitties to play:
