Blind Cat Rescue and Sanctuary

Care2 recently published an article, Blind Cat Sanctuary Offers Cage-Free Oasis, about a cat sanctuary, Blind Cat Rescue and Sanctuary, in St. Pauls, North Carolina which opened its doors seven years ago as a home for blind cats who were scheduled for euthanasia.  The story is sad but heart-warming.

Three facts about blind cats (from the Blind Cat Rescue and Sanctuary web site):

  • they act like cats;
  • they can do almost everything a seeing cat can do (one of the sanctuary’s cats, Cora, climbs to the top of a 7 foot climber by herself and will come down the same way she went up); and
  • they point their whiskers out so the whiskers will typically brush against something before they hit it.
