Noah and Allie, devoted to one another, need loving home as their parents are reassigned by the Army.

In another instance of deeply bonded animals, 2 year old Noah and 3 year old Allie share a special bond that should not be broken. Noah has been blind since he was quite young, and Allie appointed herself as his seeing-eye cat. She looks out for him, helps him groom, gets him to play, and is his very best friend.

The cat’s pet parents are a military family from the San Fransisco area who thought they would be able to take their cats with them when they were reassigned; then learned that they had to move and could not take the cats. Ghia Ash and her husband were heartbroken to learn they had to give up their cats, and wish the best for them.

Ghia told a local paper that when Noah lost his sight she put a bell on Allie’s collar so he would always know where she was, and says that after a few days, Noah was getting around just fine despite his blindness.

Noah and Allie were adopted from the Nine Lives Foundation, a cat rescue in Redwood City CA.  A Nine Lives volunteer has been fostering them but the rescue wants to find them a new, permanent home. For obvious reasons, the pair need to remain together.

Their love and devotion, and mutual dependency should be rewarded. Those who know them vouch for their wonderful personalities. Other than needing to remain indoors, they have no special requirements.

From the Nine Lives Foundation:

Noah is a blind kitty who hangs out with his big sister Allie. Allie guides Noah and keeps him safe. Although Noah doesn’t act blind, his sister Allie senses that he is so she watches over him. Allie also keeps Noah entertained and warm and cozy. Unfortunately for these two
kitties, their owners got stationed in Korea for two years and had to leave Noah and Allie behind. This was very difficult for Noah and Allie’s owners. What they wanted ideally was for someone to foster Noah and Allie for the two years that they are stationed overseas. However, due to the fact that the owners had to leave sooner than later and had no time to find a foster, Noah and Allie are now up for adoption with Nine Lives Organization.

Here is the adoption poster that Nine Lives is using to try to find this special pair a new home

In addition to the website, which we linked to above, you can learn more about the Nine Lives Foundation, and these two cats, at their Nine Lives Foundation Facebook page.  Their contact info can be found at both places.

    Comment for Ainslee in Massachusetts (from FB comments):

    If you seriously are interested in adopting them, contact Nine Lives Foundation and see if they would be willing to send them to you via Pet Airways. They fly to Washington where you could pick them up.
