Mandy is a very special girl who needs a quite mature home with very little if any changes in her future family’s daily routine. You see, Mandy is blind. Consequently she needs time to adjust to her environment including finding her litterbox, the food dish and water bowl. Because we do not know what causes Mandy’s blindness, her future family will need to pay close attention to potential health issues associated with blind cats and provide the necessary vet care accordingly. Mandy had a sad story prior to coming to PAWS. Mandy was pregnant as a blind stray cat who was taken in by her caretaker. Mandy gave birth to one kitten but was not spayed. The caretaker’s family has two other cats.
Being blind and overwhelmed by the presence of other cats, Mandy occasionally missed the litterbox. On a cold winter night, Mandy was thrown out of the house by her caretaker’s husband, after an accident outside the litterbox. Luckily her caretaker notified someone, who rescued Mandy from the back of a dumpster nearby the caretaker’s house. Eventually Mandy was transferred to PAWS. Under the care of PAWS, Mandy received the much-needed vet care, which includes a dental. In her foster home, Mandy stays in a blind-cat friendly room, where she uses the litterbox consistently.
Mandy is very affectionate with people and loves to be held and petted. Mandy however is easily startled by other animals, loud noises and will hide when overwhelmed. Therefore Mandy will do best as the only pet living in a blind cat-friendly environment.
