This seems like a good spot for a nap.  Of course, ANY place is a good spot for a nap!

Arrival Story:
Sylvester and his brother came to us from a shelter in Kuwait. Holly is a US contractor there and wrote us asking for help for Sylvester and his brother. Below is a letter from the shelter telling us their stories: "Thank you for you willingness to take on two special boys from our shelter. The boys came into our care in March 2007, so we have them almost 2 years. Although they are perfectly healthy boys, only thing "wrong" with them, is that they can't see. Ray has slight vision in one eye, but Sylvester is completely blind. The cats have wonderful senses and we have seen Sylvester sitting in front of the window, peering outside and following birds with his head movement. Both boys are very quick to find a lap and absolutely love to sit on a lap. They have never allowed their eye issue to prevent them from climbing on top of the cages either. And, touch wood, so far, they have never injured themselves when getting down. The only time Ray is irritated and he will attack other cats, is when (we suspect) his eyes might be painful. He still has eyes and sometimes gets eye infection. Both boys do mix with many other cats (with full vision). The other cats know to sidestep the brothers, but sometimes it is not possible and then a slap from the brothers are the result and sometimes fur flies all over ... but, as you know, sometimes cats with full visions also fight, so we never see the blind brothers as "trouble makers" .. they just defend themselves ... as normal cats do. They have wonderful, sweet personalities and will surely be a great asset to a home where the people will understand and accept their disabilities." As you can imagine there are very limited resources for "normal" animals to be adopted in a war torn country like Kuwait, imagine how little there is for a blind one! Holly was coming back to the states for a visit and flew them back here with her. Then she drove almost 24 hours from Chicago to hand deliver them to us! Sylvester is a HUGE fellow with a wonderful, sweet personality. He loves to be held and loved. Both Sylvester and Ray have been to the vet for physicals and dentals and they're settling in nicely in their new home in their new country!

Bio:
8/21/09 Sadly, Sylvester has journeyed to the Bridge. Somehow, a venomous snake entered his cat house at the Rescue and he was bitten. Through the vet tried so hard to save him, he passed from cardiac arrest. Sylvester was such a survivor and such a sweet cat. He will be missed by all who knew him and by those who came to know him through his story on Catster. We're thankful that he came to know love and caring during his last months. May you live in joy at the Rainbow Bridge, sweet Sylvester.

Blind Cat Rescue & Sanctuary Helping Blind Cats See a Future!

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.
