Who says you need all five senses to thrive? Tiny Twiggy may be blind, but she is living her best kitten life (with the help of her best friend/brother/"seeing eye cat", Tiny Twister!) There is never a boring day with Tiny Twiggy around - whether she's running around in circles, pouncing at imaginary prey, or playing with Tiny Twister, she definitely knows how to have a good time!

Even though she can't see where she is going, she is extremely skilled at using her other senses to navigate, and is very brave in any situation she is put in. She loves climbing and exploring her surroundings, and will become fast friends with other cats in the household! When she's ready for a nap, her preferred spot is always right next to you!

Tiny Twiggy is on medication for infrequent seizures, but this doesn't stop her from having a full and happy life.

Blind cats like Tiny Twiggy are amazing. They learn to navigate their environment using their superpower hearing and memory. Show Tiny Twiggy where things are, and soon she will be walking around the house like a cat with perfect vision; in fact, you might sometimes forget that she is blind, she's that skillful!

Tiny Twiggy is bonded with Tiny Twister, who helps her navigate the world. These two have been together for their entire life and must be adopted as a pair. Learn about Tiny Twister here: https://bit.ly/3uCreBg and let us know if you'd like to meet them!

All APA! cats are fully vetted, spayed or neutered, and have updated vaccines and a microchip. Lifetime support is offered by our Cat Behavior Team.
