Three blind cats and two Pit Bulls have become friends in a very unique situation in Wilmington, Delaware.
Pet foster mom Sherry Stewart has fostered countless animals for Faithful Friends. This year she brought three new cats into her home, and all three had had their eyes removed for medical reasons, leaving them blind. Helen, aged 7, and Bruce and Willis, aged 10, faced the task of learning how to navigate the world without their eyesight. The problem is, most people view blind cats as being unadoptable.
You might think twice, seeing as how the cats struck up a bond with Helen’s Pit Bulls and settled into her home. Helen has two Pit Bulls – Alfie and Frankie, in addition to family cats, foster kittens, a puppy, a guinea pig and two rats. Alfie serves as a therapy dog at a local hospital, and Frankie loves to snuggle with the blind cats. Both dogs were rescues themselves.
“My dogs are very nurturing. They lick and clean them, take naps with them. They don’t notice they are blind, just that they need little extra TLC since they are sick and healing from surgery,” Stewart told The Dodo. Stewart notes that Bruce particularly enjoys sitting on the dogs.
All five rescue animals are lucky enough to now know what a loving, caring home feels like, thanks to Stewart. They’re also clearly helping each other learn to cope with their new circumstances, and the cats are adjusting to life without sight well.
Both Bruce and Willis are available for adoption as a bonded pair. There is a potential adopter interested in Helen, who is also up for adoption. If you are interested in adopting Bruce and Willis, contact Faithful Friends.
