Companion Kitty Helps Blind Cat See
Celica, a small stray kitten who was born blind, was left to fend for herself several months ago. Thankfully, a rescuer came to her aid last February and found her cowering under a car in Redwood City, California.
Celica was brought to the nearby Nine Lives Foundation cat shelter around the same time as another homeless cat named Jett. Jett was unsure about his new living arrangements until he was put in the same living space as Celica. Shelter volunteer Joe Fama said, “The little male immediately approached the blind kitten and snuggled against her. In the days that followed, the two became inseparable as Jett became not only Celica’s companion but her ‘eyes’ as well.”
Jett soon stepped up and became Celica’s seeing-eye companion, guiding her through her daily steps. And this story has an even happier ending. The two cats were recently adopted together into a loving home with two new human companions. We hope that this is just the beginning of a beautiful friendship and a happy life.
