In December of 2014, three kitty siblings were found in Dubai, left to fend for themselves in an abandoned warehouse. They had lost their sight after contracting cat flu, which had gone untreated.
The cats, which included Blue and his sisters Meadow and Little Willow, were finally placed into a foster home. Blue was adopted, but without the company of his siblings, continuously cried. He was given back to the foster home so they could be reunited, and together, they continued to wait for their forever home.
When Catherine Magno heard the cats’ story, her heart broke for them and she knew they deserved a home where they’d be safe and happy–together. So in February 2015, she adopted the blind bunch.
“I had zero experience, having adopted my first ever rescue kitten just a couple of months prior,” Magno said in a story by Bored Panda. “But their story touched my heart so much that I couldn’t bear the thought of them put in a cage at a vet facility indefinitely or even worse.”
Although it was a big undertaking, this kind-hearted woman was up for the challenge.
“My perception was that it’s going to not only be challenging but will also require a lot of adjustments on my part,” she told Bored Panda.
But luckily, the transition was a lot easier than anticipated. “The only adjustment early on was keeping everything where it was but they are remarkably adaptive,” she said in the story.
According to Bored Panda, Magno has come to a wonderful conclusion from caring for her new kitties: “Blind pets see through their hearts.”
What a wonderful woman! We wish all the happiness to Catherine Magno and her whole feline family!
