I used to feed a small group of homeless cats for about a year and a half. Being a cat lover I had made the choice to start feeding these cats and was working on saving funds for TNR. Well of course the females got pregnant before I had enough and eventually I had babies coming around to eat as well as the adults. I fed the cats under a chain link fence surrounding an abandoned house off of an alley, I would slide the bowls under the fence and they would come eat. There was a little area in the back where I could see the babies romping around and playing. One morning I had come to feed and noticed there was a tiny black kitten sitting with her head down, the other babies were playing and running around and she was just sitting there, sick, with the worst eye infection in BOTH her eyes!!! Her eyes were swollen beyond belief. I made the decision right there to rescue her and get her to the vet. Unfortunately she was under the fence and out of my reach. I decided I would come back the next morning and jump the fence to get her. Turns out the next morning when I pulled up she was curled up outside of the fence, sound asleep.....I crept up on her with a blanket, threw it over her and swooped her up. She was NOT happy..... Fast forward a couple of days after a trip to the vet, a healthy shot of antibiotics and ALOT of love and good meals and warm blankets to sleep in and she was on the road to recovery. The infection caused permanent blindness in both eyes but it doesn't stop her, she tracks flies, she jumps up and down on things, she looks right at you when you call her name. She is now a little over a year old and even though she isn't very fond of anyone but me, she is a love bug and I wouldn't change a thing.
