They had made their choice, but when they went to the shelter to adopt their blind cat, they quickly realized there was more to him than met the ‘eye!’
A Maryland couple had gone to shelter to adopt a cat a blind cat, but when they went to pick him up, instead of one blind cat they found two best friends instead.
Jill Mardisich and her fiance’ had gone to Arundel County Animal Care Center to find their cat Penny a best buddy. When they arrived one cat, in particular, stood out from all the rest.
His name was Lucky Bear, though he was born without eyes he turned out to be not just a Lucky Bear, but also the biggest cuddle bear out there.
He had been brought to the shelter along with his best bud Pumba, a 4-month-old kitten about a month ago, when their family could no longer give them both the care and attention they required. The former owner had wanted to give them a better life than the one they were currently living.
Though he’s blind, the 2-year old ginger tabby doesn’t know any different, to him blind is his normal. When he arrived he quickly showed all the staff at the shelter what a cuddle bear he is.
