Sad story. I had the same with a little black kitten but with one good eye, and now he fine, running around, happy and cared for where I work.

Poor baby, the important thing first is that actually is in a safe place hoping that very soon somebody take him at home for a long and happy life with the new family! Thanks for sharing Cher.

If there was any way I could I would have this fella in a heartbeat! I bet he'd be a perfect friend for MY
little black blind cat. Never fear, Valor, someone will love you forever!

Feared cat would be put down, easier and much cheaper. Incoming donations have covered costs. Being fostered rather than incorporated into the family full-time, I'm having trouble understanding why ... one more at this point in time doesn't seem to be much of a problem. Just askin' ...

May you find a caring forever home soon, so glad that he was rescued. Have had a blind cat own me and they live life with the same desire and pleasures as a sighted cat.

My husband and I would adopt this sweet fellow in a second but we're not anywhere close (Illinois) to the requested California area. We have had blind cats in the past including a sweet guy who, like Valor, either was born without eyes or suffered from a virus that ulcerated his eyes. He lived to be 21, it was hard to tell he was blind by his movements.

Another memorable blind kitty was dear Piper. She ended up in our friend's no-kill shelter at age 14 after her guardian died and no one in the family wanted her. We adopted -- and adored -- her. We were overprotective at first fearing our other three cats would overwhelm her as she tried to navigate through the maze of a new home. We hovered around as she cataloged each necessity, food dishes, litter box and bed.
We made sure nothing changed or got in her way. Then one day we found her up on the fireplace mantel! The fireplace is never used for fires, only decor. We knew then that we didn't have to worry about her, she was home. For the next four wonderful years she ruled the household. We love and miss her still.

Valor must have suffered terribly from the infections in his eyes. So glad the vet's bill was paid for by so many generous contributions and that he's now pain free and healthy again. I'm sure he'll find a forever home very soon where he can live a happy and carefree life.

Valor reminds me of Homer too. He is quite a strong kitty and I wish I could get in touch with Gwen Cooper because Homer & Valor might be good together!! Thnx Cher, good luck Valor!!

What a sweetheart. I would like to see Valour stay where he's at as he has the perfect home, but maybe the other perfect pet parent will come along and give this little guy all the affection he needs. They can have their own miniture black panther in their house.
