Blue and his sis-furs Meadow and Little Willow are a family of three blind cats who were overlooked by everybody—until Homer's Hero Catherine Magno came forward to adopt them.
Their story starts just before Christmas 2014, when the kittens were found in an abandoned warehouse in Dubai. By then they'd already lost their sight due to an untreated cat flu. After that came a stretch in a foster home.
Brother Blue almost got adopted at one point, but the poor confused kitty couldn't bear living without his sisters and cried all night while searching for them. Soon they were all reunited in their foster home until the fateful night when Catherine took them under her wing.
"I had zero experience having adopted my first ever rescue kitten just a couple of months prior," Catherine told Bored Panda. "But their story touched my heart so much that I couldn't bear the thought of them put in a cage at vet facility indefinitely or even worse.
"That evening when I took them back home I had to keep them enclosed… within my apartment."
"I was scared because the articles I read about caring for blind pets was overwhelming. My perception was that it's going to… be challenging. But they quickly learned their way around my apartment [and] memorized where every bit of furniture is."
"Except for blind pets lacking vision, they are no different than other cats."
"They each have their own personalities. But equally affectionate and wanting constantly to be by your side."
"With proper introduction, they get along with other cats just as well as sighted cats."
"I wanted to bring awareness that they really are just like any other cats."
"And it's true what they say about blind pets – they see through their hearts."
