The human is doing good things these days, and I may have to refrain from swatting him for a while. I told you the other day about a senior special needs cat who went to his furever home. Now I have good news about another special needs cat.
This feline, who is named Bailey Jo, can not see. You might think that a blind cat would have problems living a happy and fun life, but that is not true. Do not forget, Homer was able to defend his human from an intruder despite not being able to see!
Bailey Jo may not ever attack an intruder like Homer did, but she can get around just fine without being able to see. The human was amazed when she was able to figure out how to use the pet doors at The Cat Cafe. She was also able to find the litter box just fine, and did not have any problems getting her noms.
Bailey Jo was also very inquisitive and friendly. She walked around the playpen at The Cat Cafe, even with many humans around. And when she found humans she liked, she would flop over and roll around to show them she liked them.
Now, Bailey Jo, just like any blind cat, does face some challenges. When the human carried her, he had to make sure her paws got to the ground before letting her go. He does not have to do this with me and Jacey, because we will just hop down since we can see where the ground is.
Another consideration humans have to worry about when they adopt a special needs cat who cannot see is that they must not rearrange the furniture once the feline gets used to it. It will cause confusion, although the feline will adapt.
I am very happy that another special needs cat has found their way to a good home thanks to the work of the human. It makes me happy that many humans are learning that we special needs cats may require extra attention, but that does not take away from our ability to be loving companions for the right human!
