Living with a Blind Cat




ALLEY, short for ALGERNON, came to us from the local Animal Control facility on 7/15/09.  A woman was relocating and surrendered her three cats to Animal Control as she was unable to take them with her.  The Magoo Room was promptly contacted because the youngest cat was blind and born without eyelids.  Despite our preference not to take young animals, since Alley was right here in our home community, we took him in.  What a rewarding decision!  He is the sweetest, most loving cat we have ever welcomed.  Most of his short life Alley was in a crate to keep him separate from leukemia positive cats, and he is loving the opportunity to play with the foster kittens and explore the house.  Just touching him sets up the most thunderous purrs!


Late August 2009 update:  Algernon, who we have begun to call BOO BOO (for some reason it just suits him), is just a silly little boy who jumps in the air just for the delight of it.  His one eye ruptured and had to be removed, but he weathered the operation just fine.  Boo is  adventuresome and is learning the climbing towers as easily as any sighted cat.  He can be seen sitting inside his favorite toy and loves to watch the balls go round.   Click here to see Boo Boo do his "Happy Dance"!
