Meet Baby Ethel, a four-week-old small kitten who is one of The Odd Cat Sanctuary’s newest inhabitants in Salem, Massachusetts. Tara Kay, the creator of The Odd Cat Sanctuary, discovered her as a stray kitten walking alone and rushed to take her in.
She was born blind and was diagnosed with hydrocephalus, a condition in which fluid builds up in the brain. She required a highly specific individual to look for her due to her medical concerns. Fortunately, Nicole decided to foster her until she could find her forever home.
“She weighed less than a pound when I first met her. I had her in the palms of my hands.” Nicole described.
Nicole was concerned when she brought Ethel home that the blind kitten would struggle to adjust to her new surroundings and find her way around. But, miraculously, Ethel is intelligent enough to adjust to her new surroundings. Ethel learned where the corners were when she was placed in a new area by walking very low to the ground.
This cute little fluff ball has no idea she’s not like the other kittens. Regardless of her limitations, she never allows anything to get in the way of living her best life. She is, nevertheless, a joyful and energetic kitty. She enjoys being the center of attention She enjoys being the center of attention.
