Miley and Tiger had a very hard start in life. They were found under someone’s home, born to a feral cat in early May. Miley, a sweet little girl with a black spot on the tip of her pink nose and a swath of orange on the back of her neck, loves to play. Her brother Tiger is a beautiful brown Tabby, and from the time they were kitties, they’ve been inseparable — and that’s turns out to be a very good thing. A recent vet check determined that Tiger has juvenile cataracts. He is totally blind in one eye and the other eye may be developing a cataract, as well. Miley knew this well before we did and has been watching over her brother since the beginning. HAVA (Harbor Association of Volunteers for Animals) is looking for a special person or family to adopt this pair. They will be adopted together so that Miley can serve as Tiger’s seeing-eye-cat. We want to find a home as soon as possible so that Tiger can get accustomed to his home now, while he can still see. They will need to be inside cats, but otherwise, there is very little different that needs to be done for a blind cat. They are spayed/neutered, are up-to-date on their vaccinations and are litter box trained. Check out blindcatrescue.com for more information on living with a blind cat. For information on Miley and Tiger call Donna at (360) 648-2469.
