I Wasn't A Cat Person Until I Met Stevie The Blind Cat

I didn't adopt Stevie when she was a kitten. I wasn't even looking to adopt a cat, but when I heard she badly needed a home, I couldn't resist.

This is Stevie. She's like any cat really, except that she's blind. I adopted her 3 years ago from a local cat vet hospital as she badly needed a home. The Animal Care Society of Cork had been paying for her stay there for months, as no-one wanted to adopt her. Go figure.

I had to make some adjustments in my life when I took her in. I can't move furniture around or she'll bump into them, and I have to keep her litter box and food bowl in the same place at all times. She learns amazingly fast though.

This was taken the day I adopted her. She changed my life forever. I wasn't really a cat person either until I met her.

Stevie is fearless!

Her tail acts as a cane to help her find her way around

She loves being petted

This is her favourite toy.

PS. I didn't adopt Stevie when she was a kitten. I wasn't even looking to adopt a cat, but when I heard she badly needed a home, I couldn't resist. Older cats are often skipped over by people looking to adopt, and they need homes just as much as the little ones.

This is Stevie in action.
