Yzma was rescued from a south Texas rural shelter after she was owner surrendered through no fault of her own. Yzma hasn't stopped purring since she landed in her foster home. She enjoys the simple things in life like laying next to her human, being petted, and making air biscuits. Yzma is incredibly sweet and would do great in a home that has less traffic. With a slow and proper introduction, Yzma could potentially live in a home with another friend.

Adopters often ask if it's harder to take care of a blind cat. In short, the answer is no.

Caring for a blind cat isn’t as difficult as you’d imagine. In fact, it’s not much different from caring for a sighted kitty—you just need to have a few extra considerations. Whether you’re thinking about adopting a new cat or your resident kitty is facing vision loss, there are many ways you can accommodate a blind cat in your home. Felines’ sense of hearing and smell is advanced enough that most cats are able to function normally and live a very happy life.

Adopting a blind cat may mean slower progress at first, but in all likelihood, you’ll hardly notice the difference from having a sighted kitty! If you can find room in your heart (and home!) for a cat that has lost its vision, you’ll be repaid in full with love and gratitude.
