Gabby * MOSTLY BLIND *'s Info...

I am already neutered, a special needs pet, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Gabby * MOSTLY BLIND *'s Story...
Don't judge a book by its cover, and don't judge a cat by their disabilities.... but rather by how they thrive despite them.

No cat embodies this more than Gabby.

Most visitors to the shelter have no idea that Gabby is any different from any other cat unless we point him out to them. He runs and plays like everyone else. He even leaps from cat tree to cat tree without hesitation.

But when he turns to face you, it's obvious that not all is as it appears. As you can see in the photos, Gabby has a milky film over both eyes, and his third eyelid stretches partially across the eye. Although he does have some slight vision, it's very limited, but thanks to his age, he has compensated and acts like every other cat.

To Gabby, everyone is like this. He doesn't know he's different.

He doesn't require any special care. His eyes are simply damaged due to a severe infection he contracted while on the street before coming to the shelter. By the time he made his way here, his eye were already damaged beyond repair.

But he doesn't want pity, only love. Gabby is the happiest, friendliest kitten you'll ever meet. He loves to be picked up, snuggled and stroked. The moment you pet him, he'll start to purr, and he won't stop until long after you stop.

Gabby adores dogs and other cats. He's also a big fan of kids, and you can often find him snuggled in the arms of even the smallest kids, happy as can be.

Gabby is currently 5 months old. You can meet Gabby at the shelter during adoption hours, Thursday through Sunday 5 to 8pm, or at the thrift shop Monday through Saturday 11am to 6pm. He is already neutered, FeLV/FIV tested, fully vaccinated, dewormed, flea treated and microchipped, so he's ready to join a new family.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Gabby * MOSTLY BLIND *, a Struthers Domestic Shorthair kitten was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Domestic Shorthair for sale in Struthers, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair kitten from a breeder in Struthers.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Struthers already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Struthers breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Domestic Shorthair breeders who help with Domestic Shorthair rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Struthers paves the way for another one to be saved.
