Meet Baby Ethel, a 4-week-old tiny kitten, who is one of the newest residents at The Odd Cat Sanctuary in Salem, Massachusetts. She was found as a stray kitten wandering alone, and Tara Kay, founder of The Odd Cat Sanctuary rushed to take her in her care.
She was born blind and diagnosed with Hydrocephalus, which is basically a buildup of fluid in her brain. Due to her health issues, she needed a very special person to take care of her. Thankfully, a woman named Nicole agreed to foster her until she was ready to find her forever home.
“The first time I met her, she was under a pound. I could hold her in my palms. She was the sweetest thing,” Nicole said.
When Nicole brought Ethel home, she worried the blind kitten would have trouble adapting to her new home and finding her way around. But amazingly, Ethel is enough smart to learn to adapt her new environment. When being put in a new area, Ethel walked really low to the ground and learned where those corners were.
This adorable little fluff ball has no idea she is different than most kittens. Despite her handicaps, she never lets anything stop her from living her best life. She is a happy and playful kitten just the same. She loves attention, she likes to be the center of attention.
