Could You Learn to Love a Cat With No Eyes?

Murdock's eyes were ravaged by infection when he was just a kitten. For some that might be a flaw, but for Murdock's foster, it drew her closer.

The short answer is: Yes. Yes you can learn to love a cat with no eyes.

The long answer is Murdock's story. It started on a Sunday at the Sonoma Humane Society in Santa Rosa, California, when Murdock entered the life of the human who would become his forever family. She was working a shift at the shelter. The tiny kitten was overcome with a brutal chronic eye infection that eventually caused them to rupture. At just a few weeks old, Murdock needed to have his eyes removed.

But Murdock's recovery took longer than vets anticipated, and that's how he found himself in the foster care of his human friend. She never intended to keep the kitten for herself, but after enduring the kitten's struggle through sickness and a surgery that nearly ended his life, she became very attached to the little ginger cat with no eyes. It was meant to be.

Here's Murdock being adorable.

Now Murdock advocates for special needs cats like himself. According to his Facebook page, everyone who meets Murdock adores his sweet disposition and his human friend calls him the most amazing and handsome cat she's ever known -- and she would know! She's an RVT who works five days a week at the Sonoma Humane Society -- she has seen a lot of cats.

This photo is so sweet it almost made me cry!

Too cute!!!

But Murdock, with his gentle face, is the one who has won her heart.

And now he's won ours too.

So true.

Who needs eyes when you've got all your other senses?

What a handsome little man.
