Jen and Ian adore animals, particularly cats. As a result, for the past nine years, the couple has been fostering cats. They frequently visit their local shelter to assist older cats in finding a permanent home.
They already had three cats of their own, all of which were foster failures, so they decided to continue fostering and search for adult cats. Everything changed, however, when they saw a little blind cat who warmed their hearts.
The couple visited their local animal shelter, where they spotted a little blind kitten in a cage. He had both of his eyes removed owing of a hereditary issue, according to the shelter’s staff.
Jen told Naturee, “I saw this little little cat who had his eyes removed, so he had scars on his eyes and he was wearing a cone, sitting in his cage, all by himself, trying to eat out of a food bowl.”
According to the veterinarians, the small boy was born with a hereditary issue. They had to remove his eyes and seal his eye sockets to avoid infection and keep him healthy and happy since his eyes were not functioning correctly and were frequently contaminated.
The couple realized the cat needed their care and chose to foster him, giving him the name Bop. The kitten rapidly adjusted to his new existence and didn’t see himself as any different from the other cats.
“Leaving him there was simply not an option for me, so I was like, ‘Alright, we’re taking this one,’” Jen explained.
He explored and played like any other kitten in his new home. Jen’s cats, on the other hand, had no idea how to engage with this small blind kitten and were afraid of him.
At the shelter, Jen remembered Bop having a brother named Boop. As a result, Jen and Ian returned to the shelter in order to bring Bop’s sibling home as a playmate for Bop. She thought Boop would help her other cats and Bop get along.
Boop got along with the other cats quite well, and he adored his sibling. All of the cats were soon having a great time playing together!
The couple began discussing about finding homes for the cats after six months, but they decided they didn’t want to give up the brothers. They were enamored with them to the point of obsession. As a result, Jen and Ian have adopted Bop and Boop!
Finally, Bop and Boop have found a wonderful permanent home, and the cats are doing well after a year with their new owners. They also get along well with Jen and Ian’s foster kitties.
