I’m always hoping for the most awesome forever homes for my fosters. With my blind kitties I especially hoped there would be families out there, which understood blind cats and would adopt my blind girls into their homes. This was sthe first time Ive dealt with a cat with disabilities and to find the right home.
I went out and saw Laverne, my blind kitty, at her beaurtiful new home yesterday. The couple that adopted her are wonderful people. They rescue goats and rescued 2 baby pigs that fell off a truck going to the slaughterhouse.
Yale the husband told us a sweet story of their first blind cat. Yale was at an ASPCA meeting and afterward he said he wanted to adopt the most unadoptable cat they had. They brought out a blind kitty to him. It was Kathleens birthday and he gave her the blind kitty as her present.
Oh that there were a million more people out there like them! They have an organization called SWIVL
Their mission: Changing Public Policy Through Personal Initiative / Ending Animal Cruelty- Child Abuse-Domestic Violence. They work in the schools and with scout troops, churches. They have a herd of rescue goats and pigs and dogs and cats. We got to visit with all the animals. It was so much fun.
Again I hit the jackpot finding a forever family for my blind kitty Laverne. I know she will be understood, loved and cared for just as I had wished for!
