Nyx on the couch

Update on blind kitty

I was recently doing a search on the old news clip of my kitty & found that you did a story on her. Let me review, about two years ago the humane society had a 4 week old kitten come in that had no eyes. Dr. Tim Gintz at Pacific Ave. Animal Hospital donated his services to remove her tear ducts & colse her eye lids. She was at the hospital for 1 month, due to an infection she had to overcome before surgery was safe...all I needed was to see her once and I fell in love with her! You see, I am a licensed veterinary technician working at the hospital. So, I adopted her. After her surgery and she was about ready to come home with me I insisted on taking some x-rays to make sure her infection was gone...we found another birth defect, she has scoliosis! Well, I took her home and I am happy to report that she is doing great! Her name is Nyx (after the god of night) and she lives happily with me, my fiance and she has a bother and sister (cats as well) that she gets along great with. She plays with toys, eats like a pig, get up and down off the 6 foot scratching post and moves around the house with no problems. I don't care if you decide to tell her story or not, I just thought that those who knew her of her story would like an update. She is my angel and happy to report that she is doing great & that she is a true inspiration; no matter any challenges given you in life, you can find a way to live through them.

My Praise to you as it was tough enough to raise a deaf cat myself. Her Mom tossed her at 2 weeks being a farm cat and we eye dropper fed her until healthy.

You're kitty is very lucky to have found you and YOU will be the luckiest person to have found her.A year ago today, I had to have my best friend Sammie put to sleep. She was 12 and had been blind since she was 3 months old..She was amazing!

Because of birth defects I had a cat that was both deaf and blind. My cat lived to be 12 years old and many of my friends never realized my cat was deaf and blind until I told them of his birth defects--they thought he was a normal cat.

Oh what a cute kitty! I am so happy you gave her a home. I remember her original story and it was hard not to fall in love with her.
