Blind Kitten Found on Streets Gets a New Lease on Life and Gives Everyone Cuddles

A kitten was found alone on the streets with severely infected eyes. He was in terrible shape, just skin and bones and couldn't see.

A shelter took him in and was determined to save him despite the odds stacked up against him.

The kitten, named Taffy, had hardly meowed since he was brought into the shelter (in Ontario, Canada), but he snuggled up to her foster carer as if to thank them for saving him.

The infection was so severe that his eyes couldn't develop properly. After treatment, the kitty was back on his paws but had lost most of his vision.

"The vet mentioned that he had a blind eye and the other one had weak vision. They needed help in finding him a home so they contacted us," Celine Crom of Chatons Orphelins Montréal shared with Love Meow.

A month ago, Taffy arrived at Chatons Orphelins Montréal after a long ride to Montreal.

"Taffy tried to get out of his carrier as soon as he arrived. He made the tiniest sounds to catch our attention," the rescue said.

Though being mostly blind, Taffy is not in any discomfort and doesn't need eye surgery. They placed him in a foster home where he quickly befriended a few furry animals.

"He is so sweet with dogs, other cats and humans," Celine told Love Meow. "He will smell your nose and then cuddle up to you."

"Taffy is mostly blind but that doesn't stop him from functioning normally and doing things just like other cats," the rescue said.

He loves to snuggle and will cling to his humans and follow them everywhere they go.

"Even though he can see little, he has total confidence and trust in us. He likes to interact with other animals, loves to run after toys and sleep near his human, and if we touch him he purrs with pleasure," the rescue added.

Taffy had neuter surgery yesterday. He purred up a storm while getting some neck scritches.

The sweet kitty experienced kindness and love when he was given a second chance at life. Now at five months old, he is the happiest little guy at the rescue, giving everyone hugs.

Being blind doesn't slow him down. He likes to play and gets really excited by different sounds and smells. But what he loves the most is to cuddle with his humans and nuzzle in their arms.
