If you are looking for two amazing kitties here they are! I have been rescuing for over 15 years so of course I sing the praises of all of our animals because I love them all. However, I am putting it in writing that Hera and Chin Chin are two of the most inspiring cats I have gotten to know. They are sisters and were both rescued from a hoarding situation. Because of an untreated eye infection when she was just a few weeks old Hera lost her eye sight. She has completely adapted though and in ways it seems her other senses are even keeper than other cats', and her fearlessness and ability to adapt is awe inspiring.
In fact, she has adapted so well that I took her back to the eye specialist a second time insisting that she must be able to see. She tracks movement, avoids bumping into objects and even looks at my face/eyes when I approach her. How could she be blind and do all of these things. Then for the second time the specialist let me know that no she cannot see. The important thing is it does not seem to bother Hera one bit.
And while Hera often steals the show because of how inspiring it is to watch her navigate using all of her other senses, her sister Chin Chin is truly the old soul in the pair. She is shy at first but once you get to know her it is impossible to resist her charm. She is super smart, gorgeous, athletic and incredibly affectionate. She is also the protector and always keeping a watchful eye out for her sister. Even though she has never had kittens of her own she is definitely the nurturer. Even with any of us, if we have a down day Chin Chin seems to always know and is the first to come to comfort us.
Both Hera and Chin Chin love other cats..
