Blind Cat Leads Family to Her Kittens After Seeking Comfortable Home Her Whole Life

A blind cat led a family to her three kittens after seeking a comfortable home her whole life.

Late last month, Coastal Bend Cat Rescue (CBCR) in Corpus Christi, Texas was contacted about a feline family of four needing a foster home.

A stray cat was found wandering outside at an elderly couple’s residence. Their son, on a routine visit to their home, noticed that the cat’s eyes appeared crusted shut. He followed the friendly tabby to her den and was surprised to discover three tiny kittens that she had been caring for.

“He contacted our rescue for help. At the time, the cat was thought to have bad eye infections that sealed her eyes closed,” Mary Huckabee, CBCR Officer, told Love Meow.

As soon as they had an available foster home, they welcomed them in with open arms.

Two of the kittens were very malnourished, showing signs of an upper respiratory infection (URI). The cat mother, named Clue, scarfed down the food before settling in her comfy, warm nest with her babies (Candyland, Monopoly and Chutes and Ladders) nursing on her belly.

As Clue’s eye drainage improved, they noticed that she didn’t have normal eye tissue and was completely blind.

“Our vet thinks she has congenital microphthalmia, born with very small or absent eyes. She will need enucleation to prevent recurrent infections,” Mary shared with Love Meow.

“Being blind doesn’t bother her at all. Mama Clue was very protective of her babies.”

With a safe home, warm beds, and medical care, the kittens regained their appetite and started putting on weight. Their eyes all cleared up after a week of TLC.

Whenever the kittens were taken out of the cube to be weighed, Mama Clue kept close tabs on them. She made sure that her babies would be quickly returned to the nest and into her loving arms.
