You'd think that animals would have a much harder time living life without eyes, but as they have so frequently proved in the past, nothing really stops them. Take Bacon and Eggs, two male cats that found their way to the Maryland SPCA when they were just six months old. Both of them had congenital eyelid defects, and in order to prevent further infections, the vet staff removed their eyes.
The shelter hoped to adopt the sweet brothers out to a good family, so they took to its Facebook page to get the word out there. Over a hundred shares later, another generous donor paid their adoption fee to make it easier for them to find their way to new parents.
And now, Bacon and Eggs are in a home together, thanks to a family who wished to remain anonymous. Their foster mom and MD SPCA staff member Alisa says that despite their lack of sight, these kittens don't let much slow them down.
"They act just like any other extremely social six-month-olds -- they love to sit on your lap and Eggs [the one with more white] loves to climb on things. They both love to hang out and listen to the TV with you on the couch," Alisa said via the Maryland SPCA Facebook page. "They got along great with my 75 pound Husky and my own cat -- Bacon loved to play with him. The just need a little more time to figure things out, but once they know where things are, they are unstoppable!”
Let this act as a reminder that when trying to adopt animals out, matching names just could help. Not to mention that having two dogs named PB & J could be a real conversation piece when people come over.
