Adopted April 2012
Stevie (The Wonder Cat) Stevie and Mick
can honestly say that I never expected to bring another furry family
member into my home anytime in the near future. Living in only a
small apartment and already having a medium sized dog and a rambunctious
cat keeping my hands full, adoption was the last thing on my mind …
until Stevie came along!
the moment Stevie entered the animal clinic where I am employed, I knew
he would be coming home with me. At first glance, most people
would have seen what was left of a severely infected eye paired with an
empty eye socket. I, however, saw a bundle of courage, happiness
and positivity. Stevie immediately began to purr and knead while
always curiously exploring the endless abyss surrounding him.
Stevie’s remaining eye was surgically removed and both of his eye
sockets were sutured closed. Although he cannot physically see the world
around him, Stevie’s outlook is both fascinating and inspiring.
If I were in his position, I don’t think I would be strong enough to
have such an undefeated spirit. As Stevie’s story spread, a lot of
the same questions arose. Wouldn’t it be more humane to
euthanize? How does he get around? Can he find his food and
litter box? The truth is, Stevie is probably one of the happiest
little critters I know! He finds his food and litter with ease
and, from afar, most onlookers would never know he is blind.
am proud to say that Stevie has made a wonderful addition to my
family. He gets along great with his brothers Mick (the cat) and
Jagger (the dog). They play and interact together day and
night. I have often caught Mick grooming Stevie and they both love
playing with their favourite crinkle puff toy (generously donated to
them from Helen from Animal Welfare). Stevie will forever be my
little wonder cat!
