A few weeks ago one of our daily cat feeders saw a certain man (who wears black robes if that gives you a clue) drive up to the feeding station and deposit a small kitten there and then get back in his car and drive away.
It turned out that this kitten, although beautifully clean and otherwise healthy, was in fact blind due to a virus that had remained untreated so that it ended up causing lacerat...ions to the eyeball.
So, we were now caring for a blind kitten that had maybe a 1% chance of ever finding a home given the situation here at the moment.
By a small miracle Pam bumped into a lady called Karen who was on holiday here. Karen had previously adopted another blind cat from PARC, which is now living with her in UK so it appears that fate was shining that day because Karen is now looking at flights to take the little one back to UK.
WELL THAT WAS THE GOOD NEWS !!
Today, guess what? Our feeders have found another little blind kitten at the same feeding station !!!! It is the same age as the first one, is clean and otherwise healthy - ie just the same as the first one so are we being cynical by thinking it is also from the same litter and was put there by the same person ....... ????
We will of course try very hard to find this little one a home but it's chances really are not good. On days like this it is very hard ....
If you or anyone you know would be interested in offering a home to this kitten please contact us.
