Introduction: Kenshi’s Rescue Begins
When Hope for Paws received a call about a blind kitten in a perilous parking lot, volunteers JoAnn Wiltz and Katie McKittrick sprang into action.
Immediate Action: Kenshi’s Rescue
Arriving at the scene, they discovered a lonely, blind kitten with a severe eye infection. Prioritizing the kitten’s critical state, JoAnn quickly put the kitten in a cat carrier. They named her Kenshi and rushed her to the clinic, leaving the mother cat for a later rescue mission.
Diagnosis and Treatment: Kenshi’s Recovery
The examination at the clinic showed permanent eye damage due to feline herpes. The only course of action was a surgery to remove Kenshi’s eyes.
Family Reunion: Kenshi’s Brothers Saved
After two days, volunteers rescued Kenshi’s mother and two brothers from the parking lot. Following her surgery, Kenshi reunited with her siblings, marking their first step towards recovery.
A New Beginning: Kenshi’s Forever Home
All three kittens found new homes shortly after being put up for adoption. Kenshi, now fully recovered from her operation, joined a loving household with another blind cat, Charlie, and two dogs. Despite her blindness, Kenshi swiftly adapted to her surroundings, showing her ability to sense everything around her.
Kenshi’s Happy Tale
The tale of Kenshi, from being a blind kitten in a dangerous parking lot to a cherished family pet, celebrates the tireless efforts of Hope for Paws’ volunteers. Kenshi’s story is a testament to animal resilience and the beautiful outcomes that can stem from kindness and swift action.
