Some cats have it easy in life, others have it (very) hard. Dmitri the cat from Greece falls in the second group. He was born in 2018 and saved by an animal rescue from the streets where he could have easily been killed. He was eventually sent to an animal shelter in London where his problems would begin.
Even since moving to London, Dmitri got one eye infection after another. After some time, vets had no choice but to remove his eyelids. Everyone thought the cat would not make it, but he didn’t give up. Even without his eyesight, Dmitri never gave up on being a cat.
It took some time, but he eventually learned how to navigate his small world. While no one believed in adoption, a kind girl named Emma took him in. He was everything she wanted. Emma was looking into pets with disabilities and Dmitri was the perfect pick.
Once she got him home, Emma thought he’d need a long time to adapt. That wasn’t the case. She didn’t move any furniture and didn’t feed him. Dmitri learned the lay of the land pretty quickly and got around easily.
Despite his blindness, he is very fond of nature. And cuddles with Emma, of course. They are a match made in heaven, and we couldn’t be happier the Universe brought them together.
Read these characteristics which almost all cat lovers have in common:
INTROVERTED AND SENSITIVE
It’s the nature of cats that they are not friends with everybody, and the same trait can be seen in their owners too. Usually, they live alone and are happy with their independent lifestyle. They are introverts but are comfortable hanging around with other people. However, they would need some me-time to relax and recharge.
CAT LOVERS LEAN TO LEFT
It has been observed that people with liberal political leanings prefer cats over dogs. You might be a liberal dog lover or a conservative cat owner; if you’re a liberal, you love cats and vice versa.
CAT OWNERS ARE OPEN-MINDED
Five traits – conscientiousness, neuroticism, extraversion, agreeableness, and openness are often seen in most cat lovers. As compared to dog owners, people who have cats as pets are more open and therefore, have greater artistic creativity.
Just like their pets, cat lovers seek attention from people around them. They like to be the centre of all conversations. At times, cat owners rely on their pets for emotional support.
THEY RESPECT CATS MORE THAN ANYONE
Cat people respect cats more than humans, in general. The saddest sight for a cat lover is to see the animal on the streets without a home. Cat lovers are often seen making a special effort to rescue or rehabilitate homeless cats.
