Yet another cat named Elle arrived via animal control after being caught in a humane trap. As a stray, Elle had gone blind due to hyperthyroidism, and her fur was so matted she could barely move. Her liver was also failing. With the help of Elle’s foster-caretaker, Miller was able to nurse Elle back to health by putting her on a feeding tube, administering the herb milk thistle to restore liver function, and ensuring she received the eye surgery and antibiotics she needed.
Miller also updates the Blind Cat Rescue and Sanctuary’s with photos and videos almost daily, giving everyone the opportunity to understand what Miller already knows: that blind cats deserve the chance to be happy and loved as much as any other cat.

Our has ended. With your support, we have received around 5,100 comments since Oct (I put together an amount of $255 in the fund). Thank you so much for your support. Many of you have to receive this fund and to be featured on Love Meow. They all deserve to be recognized. One of them got the most nominations of all. We would like to introduce to you a very special rescue group: Blind Cat Rescue & Sanctuary."If you pick up your blind cat and move him/her from point A to point B, try to put your cat down where they have a good idea of where they are. Example, at their litter box, their food, or where the floors have different textures. My daycare playroom and dinning room went from carpet to tile, if I wanted Louie to leave the playroom, I would put him so front feet were on the tile and back were still on the carpet... now he knew where he was."Blind Cat Rescue & Sanctuary began in 2005 in a mission to provide refuge to blind cats who were determined unfit for adoption and had once been scheduled for euthanasia. It is a cage-free, no-kill facility where all the feline residents are given a lifetime of love and care.Went to their "open day" on 11/06 and met all the cats that are cared for there (93). Alana and the rest of the staff and volunteers do a fantastic job looking after either blind or FLIV (Leukaemia) cats that would otherwise have been euthanised....A fantastic place to visit. These cats are so loving and friendly. This sanctuary cares for blind, Fiv positive and FeLV cats. You get to interact with these sweet babies. The staff is so dedicated and caring, the facility is wonderful. These cats are so...Miller volunteered at another area shelter for several years before opening the Blind Cat Rescue. At the time, she never thought she would open a cat shelter of her own; in fact, she only adopted her first cat because her son wanted a pet, and she started volunteering because her teenage daughter needed an adult chaperone. She’d always been more of a dog person, but the day a blind cat arrived at the shelter is the day Miller finally got "sucked in."
