Rescued Kitten Who Had Both Eyes Removed, Now Is Living Happy Life

Braille the kitten was rescued in Philadelphia last month when she was just a few weeks old. She was dropped off at the Animal Care and Control Team of Philadelphia in awful shape.

The kitten’s condition was so bad, with a severe respiratory infection that affected both of her eyes.

Sara Konnecke, who works at ACCT Philadelphia, refused to give up on the poor kitten, although the feline was extremely ill. She and her girlfriend, decided to foster her and give her all the medical care she needed.

“Her condition required us to put hot compresses, saline solution and tobramycin drops in her eyes every four hours, in addition to giving amoxicillin orally twice a day,” “It was painful and difficult for her to eat and breathe, and she was permanently shaky the first three or four days of care,” said Sara.

Braille’s life depended on the bilateral enucleation surgery, so both of her eyes were removed. But, now she is doing great, thanks to the care and love of her foster moms. Although, she is blind, her personality is shining bright.
