Maui is a beautiful British Short hair kitty, who sadly lost her eyesight when she was just a small kitten, so has been blind pretty much her entire life (she has had a double Enucleation, so both eyes have been removed and sewed shut). As you can imagine she is tentative with new people and new places until she has gathered her bearings. She will be stand-offish with people when she first meets them, but if you give her time and love to know she’s safe in her new environment, she will start to follow you around like a puppy and sit near you on the couch.
Blind cats are magical creatures and will surprise you every single day with their resilence and how well they navigate their way around. Maui has only lived in single level dwellings so that would be the most ideal home for her, however a home with internal stairs would be considered in the right circumstances.
Maui hasn’t learnt how to play yet, and when she first arrived into care she was scared of her own shadow, but she has come such a long way in such a short time and now seeks out attention from her humans.
Maui does need a special home with humans who are prepared to be patient with her while she adjusts to her new surroundings and her new humans, but if you are prepared to give her this time, you won’t be sorry because she is simply beyond perfection.
