Paws Up for Wednesday – Angels for Special Needs Cats

Have you ever wondered what happens to unadoptable cats—those that are blind or deaf or have disabilities? We all assume they’re eventually euthanized. But that isn’t always the case. There are many angels out there who cater to special needs and elderly cats and even cats on hospice.

It’s true. Hundreds (maybe thousands) of special needs and unadoptable cats nationwide are being rescued to live out their lives in beautiful, loving environments. For example, there are sanctuaries for blind cats, elderly cats, and many other cats with health and physical issues and disabilities. I found such sanctuaries in many cities in California, Florida, Indiana, North Carolina, Georgia, Ohio and others.

If you want to help special needs cats, here’s a great way to do it. Find a sanctuary near you or related to the kind of disability you’d most like to support and volunteer and/or donate. They might need items as well as money and many of them could use a helping hand—for petting, perhaps.

    I have to give a shout out to my sister and brother in law who are “angels” regarding special needs cats.
    They have one with one eye, one with 3 legs and oJANWOLFE916@GMAIL.COMne who has “wobbly cat syndrome” who has not much steadiness in his back legs but it only keeps him from jumping on things but nothing else. They all manage well and no one would really know they are “special” in that way.
