Meet Morwen! She’s a beautiful, blind 1-year-old rescue kitty from Georgia.
Before she found herself in a loving home, poor Morwen was a victim of cruelty and neglect.
Despite how unfair life had been to her, she persevered!
Morwen’s journey is a true testament to her strength.
Tati Romeo, Morwen’s mom and director of Lost Cats Georgia, tells us all about her special girl in the story below.
A Rough Start
Morwen was rescued from a hoarding situation in horrible health.
Both of her eyes ruptured due to a severe upper respiratory infection and had to be removed, leaving her blind.
All of the cats from the hoarding case were adopted except Morwen.
That all changed when I met her.
The first time I laid eyes on her, I fell in love!
In fact, she bewitched me, which is why I named her, “Morwen.”
She’s named after a famous witch with 8 cats from the Enchanted Forest Chronicles.
I believe cats like Morwen are extra special, not special needs. I prefer the extra special ones.
All three of my cats have impaired sight, but they don’t let anything stop them.
It’s amazing how resilient cats are!
We should celebrate cats who might be a little different and educate potential adopters that these precious souls make wonderful companions.
Sight impaired cats get on with life and thrive.
We have a lot to learn from cats!
What is Morwen’s personality like?
Morwen is feisty and fearless.
She’s the boss of the house and puts her brother and sister in their place.
When I first adopted her, she had a difficult time climbing and was often too hesitant to even try.
I bought stairs to assist her so she could easily climb on the couch, bed, and cat tree.
I can proudly say she can now climb to the very top of our six foot tall cat tree and perch there without a care in the world.
She’s very secure, isn’t afraid, and doesn’t let being blind stop her!
How has Morwen made a difference in your life?
I almost lost my vision in 2014. It was a very scary time for me.
I had to come to the realization I may become completely blind.
Thankfully, I was able to have the necessary brain surgery which saved my vision.
Because of what I went through, I feel a special connection to Morwen.
She lost her sight, but it never stopped her from living her best life.
She has taught me a lot and reminds me of how appreciative I am.
I am very grateful to be her caregiver.
I’d like to put special cats in the spotlight and help educate people who are considering rescue pet adoption.
There’s a very significant place for cats who are a little different, but worthy of so much love.
Blind is beautiful!
