What it’s Like to Adopt a Blind Kitten
by Nancy Parish
When we went to kitty yoga that day, the plan was to find a kitten for my friend to adopt. The class, held at a cat café, was heavy on cats, light on yoga. As I took off my shoes, a skinny little kitten (Nymph) made herself at home on my mat. She had beautiful tan and brown tabby markings and was so playful and cute that I hadn’t noticed right away that she was blind. In fact, she moved so effortlessly across the floor that I had to look twice to see that her eyes were permanently closed.
