LOUISE & THELMA (Must be adopted together!!)
Thelma - White with Orange
Louise - Mostly Orange with White boots - "legally" blind but you would be hard pressed to know...she acts like any other cat in the world!
Approximate DOB: August 15, 2010
Thelma and Louise are sisters, and they are approximately three years old. They were rescued in Decatur when they were approximately three months old. They suffered from a congenital condition called Eyelid Agenesis, which means they were born without eyelids. They both had eye surgery to correct this problem. Both Louise and Thelma need eye ointment put in their eyes several times a week. The ointment is not expensive and both cats are easy to medicate.
Thelma’s eyesight is perfect, but Louise is blind. Louise had to have one eye removed and can only see shadows and light from her remaining eye. Being blind, does not stop Louise from doing kitty things. She roughhouses with her sister, runs up and down her cat tree, finds her food and her litter box just fine. She can also navigate any room once she becomes familiar with her surroundings. I have even taken her traveling with us in our travel trailer and she did just fine once she adjusted to her environment.
They are both very sweet, loving cats. Louise, especially, loves to curl up in your lap and take naps. She’ll also likes to play with your hair. Both Thelma and Louise love tummy rubs, spending the day sunbathing from their cat tree, and keeping you company while you’re on the computer.
A few facts about blind cats: blind cats can do pretty much everything that a seeing cat can do. They have no idea they are blind. They know they are cats, and they act and play like cats. One thing that will stop a blind cat is a gate, fence or wall because they cannot see the other side of it and they have no concept that they can get to the other side. Blind cats can climb trees and cat perches, but they tend to back down feet first.
As with all Forgotten Felines cats for adoption, Thelma and Louise are spayed and current on their shots and tests. For more information on how you can meet these wonderful sisters, please contact Arlene at 256-232-9768 or email her at email@example.com.

Rescue Group Info...
Forgotten Felines, Inc. is a 501-(3)(c) non-profit charitable organization. Our primary purpose is to manage the feral cat population in our area by trapping, neutering/spaying and re-releasing (TNR) cats back into their original territories. We also work to provide safe temporary homes for cats that are homeless, unwanted, abandoned or lost. Some of our animals have been rescued from dangerous conditions and cannot be released back to their original territory...these animals are housed in foster homes until permanent loving homes can be found. The majority of these animals are friendly abandoned pets, that are not feral, and we offer these loving and grateful animals for adoption here on Petfinder and also at Petsmart in Jones Valley, Huntsville, AL. We also provide help to people who are elderly, disable, financially challenged and those who love their animals but cannot provide them with the necessary care.
(1) Control feral cat populations through neutering/spaying
(2) Educate the public about about proper pet care and responsibility, especially neutering/spaying and advising about pet behavior and medical issues that often result in families giving up their pets
(3) Humanely remove and relocate ferals when possible
(4) Adopt out loving, grateful animals into permanent forever homes
(5) Raise necessary funds to build a shelter for rescued cats
