Rescue:

Dahlia was very tiny when she was found in a horse barn that had become overrun with cats.  One of the women who organize the Trap Neuter Release programs started working with this farm a few years back.  Most of the cats were feral. They were rescued using a humane trap, spayed or neutered, vaccinated and after recuperation returned to the barn.  There was one female that was very wise to the trap; she couldn’t be caught. This was Dahlia’s mother.  In the spring she, of course, had another litter and Dahlia was one of them. Although the cats had decent shelter, they were fed table scraps, the barn was very dusty and this led to eye irritations/infections.   The farmer called to talk about this most recent litter and asked if we would be interested in taking them into care.  All the kittens seem to have eye issues and without medication they will lose their sight.  Arrangements were made to pick up the kittens and luckily we finally caught the mother cat.  She is now spayed and living a healthier life.  All the kitten’s eye ailments cleared up but Dahlia’s was the most severe.

Personality:

She had 60% of her vision, but it got worse with time. It was decided that her eye couldn’t be saved and surgery was booked. You would never know that Dahlia is visually impaired.  She is a very sweet kitten and manages to get around quite easily.  She loves to play, chase toys and wrestle with the other kittens without hesitation.  She is curious, agile, and tears across the room after a toy that jingles or makes crinkle noises.  She is very affectionate and snuggly and wants nothing more than to sleep with you curled up on the bed.  She is adorable and a favorite in her foster home.  Dahlia is ready to be adopted into her forever home.  One that will welcome her into the family and keep her safely indoors
