This beautiful white Persian named Moet had an unlucky streak. Brought to a pet shop in the country of Oman (no one knows where she lived before then), she lived in deplorable conditions. She suffered in filth and from neglect, never being given enough food or water to keep her healthy or full.

Living too close to the other cats, Moet caught a strain of feline flu, and without proper care, she became more and more sick. Eventually, the illness began to affect her vision, which became cloudier until one day, she couldn’t see at all. Trapped in darkness, the hopeless cat became depressed and lethargic.

 That is, until one rescue came to save her–and her luck changed. She was taken to a new facility, where for the first time, she was comforted and loved. She finally had enough food to eat and water to drink, and she grew stronger. Moet loved the affection given by her rescuers and was constantly purring! She even got her first bed and enjoyed having a soft, warm spot to lay.

Because her eyes were infected, they had to be removed. But after surgery, Moet was in much less pain and felt a lot better. She was happy and energetic, and had a zest for life that she’d never had before. Less than a week after surgery, a woman came in to meet the fluffy white cat, and when Moet rolled over for a belly rub, she knew she wanted to take this kitty home!

For over a year now, this purring Persian has enjoyed a life full of warmth, happiness, and love. She has two feline siblings to keep her company, and loves to snuggle up in bed with them and their human mom!

Even though she’s blind, Moet has come to enjoy something that almost all cats seem to go nuts over: cardboard boxes! She may not be able to see them, but she always knows when there’s an empty box that she can play (or snooze!) in.

And watch her expertly trap this ping-pong ball (“The ping-pong chase. Who needs eyes?” reads the caption):


She’s so amazing! Now that Moet has finally found her forever home, her future certainly “looks” bright!
