Third Save of Christmas: Rae

Some of us just have a rough start to life. When my siblings and I were found as stray kittens this spring, I was underweight and had a bad eye infection. I also developed an upper-respiratory infection that caused my eyes to swell, so I lost my ability to see.


The doctors at the CASPCA provided all the intensive care and TLC that they could, but on top of everything else, I started to develop issues with my G.I. tract. I was placed into a loving foster home where I could get better in a low-stress environment, and eventually my health improved. When it looked like I was well enough to be spayed so I could be ready for my forever home, I came down with a fever and a bloody nose. If it’s not one thing, it’s another⎯am I right?rae-3

Finally, things started to take a turn for the better. At seven months old, after health scares and uncertainty, I was adopted by a staff member at the CASPCA clinic who had fallen in love with me. My new mom says that I don’t let my lack of vision hold me back! I’m a happy kitty who loves to climb and play with my sibling, who was adopted along with me.

“She’s doing well! Loves food, antagonizing her sibling (another CASPCA rescue), likes car rides and sleeps on my back every night. She can see shadows I think, but doesn’t seem to have much depth perception. She will always have URIs and needs her nose wiped several times a day, but she doesn’t know she’s different.

This holiday season, please think of the thousands of animals we have saved and the thousands more we have yet to save.
